For whatever it's worth, my comment was only to substantiate how wonderful it was that neighbors helped neighbors, which is what Jon was pointing out.

Now if ALL of us could take a note from Jon and his farming brothers and just be nice to each other, everything would be ducky. Or goosey. I think Jon had geese...

Yea I HAD geese but they were bullies so got rid of them. Lol.

It was a great day to see everyone pull together. Today I take my boss up to Sioux City for his surgery. They are going to clean out his arteries. We have to be there at 5:30 am tomorrow so I got us some hotel rooms a couple blocks from the hospital. We just got a good start on corn but it's just going to have to wait.

Wishing you all well. The corn can hold. My father-in-law tells of times when he helped a neighbor harvest his corn into January. Not the most ideal situation, but corn seems to allow a bit more flexibility than wheat does.

There's still corn drying in the fields all over. Yep, it can wait. Jon, drive safe and I hope things work out for your boss.
