Find The Humor In Everyday Life

This time of the year, seed is being delivered and field by field product placement is taking place with the last tweaks to where and to what product is being planted. I’ve spent a lot of time in the office creating variable rate prescriptions and putting planting books together. Product placement is crucial so as we approach planting, I like to make sure that we are on the same page as to where each product needs planted.

Of course, since the weather holds the trump card in farming, my daily tasks are always subject to change. One day I may be attending an educational meeting and the next I may be visiting with current customers and prospecting for new ones. That windshield time, which can be a lot, gives me time to think. After thinking about the important and serious matters of life, my thoughts always seem to find a way around to the humorous things that don’t really matter, but make life a little more fun.

Not What I Was Expecting

If you’ve read my blog much, you’ve figured out that I’m a seed salesman that travels a wide area and sometimes writes about those travels. I also like to write about my winter escapades/vacations, because I don’t tend to take much time off during the growing season. You’ve probably already figured out that hunting is my hobby. Well, before trekking out on my most recent expedition to Texas, I wasn’t planning on writing about it. But what happened was not what I was expecting.
