Home Country: 60 Years Of Farming

Home Country
By SLIM RANDLES
 
When Harley Jacobsen came into Doc’s office the other day for his physical it was a treat for Doc.
 
Harley is one of Doc’s favorite people. Harley is a farmer. A 24/7 farmer. Ol’ Harley can make hair grow on a bald head and wheat grow on rocks.
 
When he’d been thumped and bumped and listened to and pumped up and partially drained, Harley asked Doc for the verdict.
 
“Not bad at all for someone your age, Harley,” Doc said, grinning. “But you look tired. Take some time off and go fishing or take Gladys to the beach.”
 
“Can’t right now, Doc,” Harley said.

Fr. Glenn: The Class Of Humility

By Fr. Glenn Jones

An edifying article in the news this weekend: “Anonymous Donor Gives $25 Million To Children’s Hospital In Los Angeles”. Wow … 25 million smack-olas—not chump change by anyone’s reckoning. And, in what seemingly befits Christian teaching very well, the donor seeks no acclaim, just as Jesus Himself exhorted us: “…when you give alms, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is

Well, what got him fired up the other day was a meeting of the ladies of the garden club down at the nursery. Windy’s been helping Dewey with his manure business on the one day a week he spends helping others. Today wasn’t a helper day, but he couldn’t pass up the audience.
 
They hadn’t gotten through old business when Windy stood, smiled, and spoke.
