I gathered a row of corn yesterday and cut off 4 quart bags. I will get at it again tomrrow. I don't like corn on the cob from the freezer but I love it cut off. It is a lot of work. You can see the corn is only fair. We had about 3 weeks of no rain as it was maturing and that hurt it. Still tastes good. Laura got 4 quarts from hers.
I had this sweet bird visit this morning and I watched him from my kitchen. Seems it it is a Towhee but now I am not sure. The electricity was off about 4 hours this morning. Made me imagine life without that convenience. Our house is all electric. Glad I had made my coffee before it went off. When Larry got up I went to Hardees and got him a cup with a sausage and biscuit. I don't like their coffee as it tastes like instant to me. At one time in my life, we drank instant coffee--Nescafe. I could not stomach it now. When I was in college, I had instant coffee in the morning made with just hot tap water.
Astrid got her first check from the dress shop. I think Laura said it was $221.00 after they held out. I know she was elated. She loves working. My first job was when I was 14 years old. Fleta got a better job and I took her old one. It was 1965. I babysat Kyle and Sheila Fancher for two dollars a day, including Saturday. Dee paid me but also gave me clothes from the store. I stayed at her home all week. Sometimes I went home for a visit on Sunday. Lots of times she took me. Dee Fancher was really good to me. I turned 15 that June. I had worked since then until I retired from teaching.
