It’s been a bit of a tough time lately. I’ve lost two friends this month to the big C, cancer. It makes you stop and think about what life is all about. Think about what really matters in this world. Both were good men, exceptional men. Kind, giving, hardworking men with loving families.
Luckily for both of them it was rather quick. Quick or slow, cancer is not a nice way to go.
Loss is never easy. For families and friends of those who die, going quickly or slow is not the issue, loss of a loved one is the issue. They will be missed.

OK, now this is getting to be too much. It has rained for most of the days in the month of June and I have work that must be done before the corn is too tall, and time is running out. Our best hope for nice weather is Wednesday, and then it is supposed to rain again.
I got a good start on spraying the weeds in the corn, but I need another day to finish. The soybean fields already have weeds taller than the beans. This is frustrating.
Also on the to do list is the last application of nitrogen and cultivating corn. With my dad taking off a week for a trip west, I’ll be hustling when the weather clears. The corn is growing fast enough that I may not be able to get all of these jobs done.
If it was not raining, I could at least start work on the screen porch. Due to the rain the block work is not yet done, and I will need dry weather to do a decent job of backfilling dirt in the trench. I have the lumber here to start building, but no sun, more rain, makes for a frustrating day.
