Thanks Bob. I like it to.

How about those Lions? I know I shouldnít mention them. Probably jinks em for sure but that was sure a fun game to watch.

Sorry about the Packers Pappy. They are going to be a tough team to beat next season. Theyíre young and they learned a lot this year.

These things are popping up everywhere

We are doing great in the shop. We have beet digger, topper, both combines, two tractors and even one lawnmower in tip top shape.

Before you know it we will be getting spring stuff ready. Got planter tractor in the shop now. You just never know. It could be an early spring.

It warmed up the last few days. We decided to take advantage of the and do a few building repairs and upgrades.

The door in this building was open for a while last spring. The barn swallows made a nest on what was the bottom of the door when it was up.

Itís the inside of the door when itís closed and about four feet off the ground.

When the birds were still in it they would fly out every time the door opened or closed

It was the end of the season for the Lions last night. Us long time Lion fans are really used to our season ending early. We have never been to a Super Bowl. We were two quarters away. The first half of last nightís game was all Lions. They couldnít be stopped. We all knew they needed to play that way for two more quarters. Preferably six.

Unfortunately bad luck, dropped passes, fourth downs and maybe even the same old Lions syndrome all came together. Those last two quarters were a train wreck and we watched our lead slip away.

Gotta give it to the 49ís. They totally took advantage of the opportunity and they are now going to the Super Bowl.

Kinda like farming. Everything can be looking so good. Then a little bad luck. A breakdown. A bad decision and disaster.

That why we have another season. Thatís why we look back and learn from our mistakes but donít dwell on them.

One thing I have learned from 40+ years of farming. Every season is different. You canít just concentrate on last year. You have to focus on the season ahead.

Iím sure a lot of old Lions fans are really blue today, but itís time to put that loss aside and focus on the next season.

We went further than anyone expected. It was still a very good season and we have a very good team.

Like farming we are both playing for the Love of the Game.

Hereís to the coming season. Hope itís a winner for both of us. Go Lions.

Yep, watched it and was thinking of you, like you said looked un beatable the first half, not so much the 2nd. :) Being a Titan's fan guess I am use to disappointment.  :(
