Everything is back to normal on the river...well, except for where it flooded, that is going to take a few months and may never be the same as it was before.
Everything changes doesn't it?
Nothing new to post about and am kinda down in the dumps with the ups and downs of the weather. The nice days a person feels overwhelmed with the amount of things that need done, the crappy days are irritating now too.
My Honey was here for a couple of days...that is always nice. But he is off and running again, looking for work for his rigs. The crumbling economy has affected the oilfields more than anticipated. Slow-downs were predicted and prepared for...just not quite this much. Slow-downs=okay, screeching halt=:O. Most of it has to do with the failing economy, not the reduced value per barrel of oil. Even the oil giants are struggling to figure out how to proceed.
Which makes this economic recession....depression much different than many of the others that have come and gone. Usually, in times of recession the big guys still have the ability to buy out the small guys and keep right on trucking, not so this time. Lack of lending funds is crippling even large companies.
Same with the ranches around here. Seems anytime there is a recession, there is always a small rancher who ends up getting bought out by one of the bigger ranches, not so this time. There are several large ranches that are in serious trouble financially.
I was half joking on Mikey's blog one day about having to get some chickens, a couple pigs and a milk cow, but maybe it won't be a joke before this is all over??
