July 9th

"Sell sell sell,"
 "Maybe, let's check the Mart reports."
I woke this morning, at some ungodly hour to the sound of my two youngest contemplating, at full volume,  the current market value of lambs !  Having been given a lamb each as 'wages' for helping (I use the description loosely) during lambing; much discussion has ensued as to what  would be the best time to sell; much intense study of various Mart reports and of Deadweight prices.
Such plans they have for their profit . . .  A week in Disneyland . . As I drop them in the Schoolyard, I remind them of something I read recently, "Farmers are the only people who buy retail; sell wholesale and pay the haulage both ways."
 "Mmmm, maybe we won't  fly first class then."
