I had a chance to read some reports this morning (Friday) on crop conditions in the south (Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas) and I noted one comment out of Kansas that said that "the crops look good, but are really early"

That's what Brady area farmer Gary Gollehon tells me when describing his life "down on the farm". According to Gary, "Good neighbors and a good place to bring up a family" is the single best thing about living/working on a farm"
You may recall that I've done several Puffman Blogs on Ruth McLaughlin's "Memoir from the Western High Plains".That is to say that ruthless Ruth grew up AND lived near Culbertson in eastern Montana. The book is "Bound Like Grass" and this is one powerful tome and one of the best I've ever read
It's Ag Appreciation month and I'm gearing up to follow the custom cutters again this year. I understand that conditions "down south" have really "gone south"!

I mean "way down"...like "down south! My farmer friend Gunsmoke-Gary Gollehon has been in touch with the southern producers and you know those guys. A snow storm has recently left Colorado, Kansas, and Northern Oklahoma, giving them ample moisture and big drifts in some areas
I'll be returning to the Marias Heritage Center this evening (Tuesday) at six to share some good reading and history with some of the residents. I would like to thank Marie Ostrem for filling in for me last Tuesday while I was back in Minnesota
Not many authors of Westerns turn their attention to Christmas. My special guest tomorrow afternoon (Thursday) on the Puffman Show has done just that. He's Murray W. Nabors (no relation to Jim) and I've invited him back on the program this year
I have a very special guest joining me this afternoon at 4:35 and she WON'T be on the phone-long distance live from somewhere like many of my guests but she'll be right here in our KSEN broadcast studio on Oilfield Avenue
