We were out walking before 7am this morning—a much cooler morning and we even had some dew fall.
Michael went up to our friends’ place this morning and cut what little hay there was then I helped him get the two batteries into the tractor—he can’t lift anything over 10 pounds so is severely limited. Tomorrow he will bale this hay. Rumor has it the hay crop this year is poor and hay will be selling for high dollar come winter.
How would you like to be sitting on several hundred thousand dollars worth of fireworks about right now??? 21 states in the US allow the sale of fireworks—here in Montana fireworks are sold right before July 4 and right before Christmas/New Years. Our county as well as many other counties in Montana have banned fireworks this year—it is just too dry to chance it. Yellowstone county, the most populated county in Montana has also banned fireworks. Not good if you are a fireworks vendor but it is the only smart thing to do!
I went to town this afternoon and picked up all the groceries we will need for July 4—we are having a small gathering of friends—should be fun if we can stay cool enough! Big Timber was hopping—everyone must be getting ready for the 4th!
A good day!
