My Dad and brother have been very busy combining wheat. I took the kids over for combine rides when they were just down the road from my house. I was wishing I had someone to watch the kids for me so I could ride too.
I am going to get some wheat from my Dad so I can make some of my favorites. wheat salad, cooked wheat for breakfast and wheat chili. So glad I am not on a gluten free diet!
My internet is down L so I am typing this up on Microsoft Works and just going to cut and paste it over. My garden is becoming very productive and recently I have harvested peas, zucchini, 1 cucumber, yellow squash, red beets (YUM), and lots of lettuce. Bags and bags of lettuce. I might have over planted that a little, but I love fresh lettuce! Coming soon will be carrots, green beans, acorn squash, more cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins, more red beets, and corn! Gardens can be a lot of work, but also very worth it!
The Dirty Dash people sent out this email today,
Your sacrifice was laid upon the altar and your offering was found acceptable before the Mud Gods.
And while most of you were at that altar, you decided to exchange vows to become one with the mud: To devote yourself to it for time and all eternity, in good times and in bad, in disgustingness and in filth, to love, honor and cherish each muddy moment together till the showers do you part.
The sad thing is—at least two participants took this a bit too far, pulled out their rings to make it official—and lost them in the mud pit. I mean, I would agree with Meat Loaf, “I would do anything for MUD…but I won’t do that.”
If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Billings this year, it’s that it has 3 loves besides mud: beer, balloons, and booze. Is that only 2? I meant Bud. Same thing? I mean Brewski. Blue Moon? Blue Ribbon? I’m confused.
We’re no botanists when it comes to math, but try to disprove this equation:
(BEER + RUNNERS + MUD)^BEER = RECORD BALLOON SALES
You guys broke all previous Hog Wash records (probably cuz your aim got so bad), helping the Billings Family YMCA to raise $1500 in water balloon sales alone. You also donated over 1,200 pairs of shoes that will go to benefit Friendship House and Green Sneakers.
Billings blew us away and we can’t wait till next year when we’ll have more mud, more obstacles, more showers, and more of your friends that missed out on the inaugural running.
Not sure what the thing about the rings lost in the mud it was about, just glad it wasn't mine! I do know two people went to the ER with broken ankles. I guess that is why they have us sign those waivers! I also know I am so doing it again next year! If there is one near you...DO IT! oh yeah and yay Billings for breaking the record on water balloon sales!
