Stoskopf Diaries

September 21, 1997

There's still some work to be done on the 4-H record books but we took a break this afternoon to attend a community concert in Great Bend. Julie and Wayne loved the Rockapella concert - the same group that performed on the 'Where in the World is Carmen San Diego' public television series. The 'percussionist' was simply amazing. Imagine playing 'Wipeout' with only your mouth!

It was raining when we came out of the concert but it hadn't rained at home. In fact, one of the neighbors was farming.

Willie and Herbie, the hermit crabs, have changed shells! First Herbie moved into a larger shell and then Willie moved into Herbie's shell. I guess that means they're healthy and growing, although they never seem to eat.

Rain, rain, and more rain. At one point, the weather service radar showed rain all the way from the Gulf of Mexico to Nebraska and points north. The wet weather appears to be settling in for several days. That's not really good news. Once the rain stops, it will take several days for the wheat ground to dry out. Milo harvest and wheat planting will probably overlap once everything dries out. Just another way weather affects what we do!
