I guess life’s not all bad. I’m stuck in the office most of the time. I don’t mind getting there so early that it’s dark outside, but I do miss the sunrises every day. It does stink to leave the office when it’s dark too. So I am thankful daylight hours are getting longer.
Apparently the Smoky Mountains don’t hold snow quite like the Rockies do. I came home today and say a fresh coat of snow on the peaks! It’s something to get excited about. I miss seeing views like the mountain peaks in Colorado. Unfortunately, I live too close to the Smokies to see the peaks from the house. But this view isn’t too bad…
Then I got another surprise. I love snail mail. I’ve received some interesting gifts that only an agnerd would appreciate, and I’ve also received a lot of postcards. My postcard project from a few years back is still going strong. I don’t have all 50 states yet, but I haven’t updated my list of state agfacts in a while either. One of these days… Any way, I was excited to receive a postcard this week from Louisiana along with some great agfacts!
I also received another great gift in the mail from Hays, Kansas! The Fort Hays State University Agronomy Club used my quote on their t-shirts and sent me one as a gift. Thanks for the work ya’ll and keep up the great work!
By the way, the quote on the shirt is from my blog and pages:
Agriculture, It’s more than part of life. It’s a passion, a lifestyle, a resilient community that works hard to feed the world!–Ryan Goodman
I don’t care what anyone says, I think snail mail ROCKS! Who knows what will end up in my mail box next…
