Emma: Staying Busy In Elk City

The Misener crew is back in Elk City, Okla., repairing an all crop head for one of our customers -we’re stripping it down to the nuts and bolts, literally. I’m so grateful to have the resources and knowledge to do these tasks. I suppose I can thank my dad for that. He always said there are no such things as stupid questions and he really was an open book. I still have no idea where he stored all of this knowledge. He literally knew a combine inside and out – any farm equipment really. He could take a serial number (from an old John Deere tractor) and tell you how many were made, and what kind of options you could have put on.

He had such a passion for his job, because it’s not just a job – it’s a way of life.

This post is a little late, but I wanted to share our Fourth of July celebration. We were blessed to have it off this year, which never happens. We got to have a lovely homemade meal, enjoying family and good times.

Hamburgers on the grill with homemade potato salad, Great-Grandma Clara’s homemade baked beans, and chips with homemade fresh salsa! How can it get any better than this?

I stand corrected. It CAN get better. Homemade hot chocolate pudding with homemade ice cream. Oh my gosh, YUM!

Hopefully my next update will be from the field. Until then, be safe and God bless!
