Pinky Too!

It's amazing what a chiropractor can do for a sore back! I have not been to a chiropractor for many years, but I finally went today and got an adjustment. Dr. Rice in DeKalb, Illinois fixed me right up. He had me feeling better soon after I got on the table. What an amazing feeling it is not to have pain. Today I was able to get a lot done. I seeded the items on our calendar for today; organized the garage so there is more room; cleaned the floor in the greenhouse; cut the wood for the cold frame and filled flats for tomorrow. I also picked up sphagnum moss and seeding soil for later on. It took me a couple of hours in DeKalb this afternoon between the appointment and filling out the paperwork. It's all good though. I have to go back one more time and the doctor said I should be good to go. Not bad, since I have not been there since 1983 when I hurt my back at the nursery. 

 Tonight I stopped over to my friend, Rick's shop. He is building another Farmall M tractor for the breast cancer cause. It will be called Pinky Too! He wants to take it down to Sublette this weekend for the tractor show. They are featuring Farmall and International Harvester tractors. He will be taking Pinky as well. What a great project! Any donations go directly to the cause. Rick has a BIG heart. I'm proud of him. Rick's sister had breast cancer and lost the battle about three years ago. His mom is also fighting breast cancer at this time. My prayer is that they will find a cure. May God grant the doctors and researchers insight to a cure.


Seed Day - Breast Cancer Awareness

Today I am off to pick up my large seed order. The company said I could tour the facility when I get there. I am really looking forward to learning how they sort, store and package the seed. My friend Rick Wilkening and another buddy, Mike Maddox are going with me today. I also have to pick the seed potatoes and onion sets. Once we get all of this done, we are going to stop at a tractor restoration supply house. Rick has a pink Farmall M tractor called "Pinky" - - Pulling for the Cure. He has put this together to support the Breast Cancer Awareness group. It travels all over the local area to different events let people know about Breast Cancer. It's a great cause. Anyhow, we are getting some parts for a second tractor today as well.

I see by the time it is close to seven, so I better get going. There is a dusting of snow on the ground and it might be slippery. Have a great day! By the way, you can follow Pinky on Facebook. Just search for "Pulling for the Cure".
