Did You Hear Anything?

There has always been a question about whether a tree in the forest makes a sound when it falls if there's no one to hear it.
I was cultivating corn today. A large dead tree fell from the timber into my corn field making it impossible to cultivate without picking up a large mess... I can't tell you if the tree made any sound when it fell. I can tell you with all certainty, that this farmer made a clearly audible sound.

A very nice, and quite pregnant lady is turning, uh, very, no, well... she is having a birthday Friday!!! She is a disgustingly young age and nearly still in the fetal position yet, herself. It's TERAH. Click on her link on the right and say HI and wish her a Happy Birthday. She likes Cadbury eggs (currently out of season) and Dr Pepper. And she's from Kansas.

Hahahaha!!
Sorry about the tree.
It's great to be able to blog again. I've been pretty much shut out for two days. Blogger wouldn't let me visit others or read my own comments. I must have done something to annoy it. Since it's working for me now, I guess I must have somehow gotten back into Blogger's good favor.

It's nice to be back. I even loaded a picture tonight. Google is working undertime.

Was that tree a dead one or was the wind misbehaving?

I'll say it here too,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERAH!

Was that you, Cliff? I thought that was thunder I heard. Too bad I can't send Dad over with his skid loader to help you out.

Rachel said...

I hope you didn't say anything naughty Cliff!! Hahaha!! Too bad the tree fell right where you didn't want it to. They tend to do that sometimes though. It's natures way of seeing how we react I think. At any rate, I'm sure glad it didn't fall on you!

I went right over and wished Terah a wonderful birthday. She's just a spring chicken still!!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Dad, the tree made sound waves when it fell. When these sound waves travel to a device designed to recieve them, such as an ear, they then become a sound. I'm sure there was a squirrel or a deer around to hear it. Now get back to work.

Ralph could go there to fart since his signs tell him not to at the places he goes.

Nobody would be hearing him out there for sure if you couldn't hear a tree fall.

Thanks, Cliff & everyone else for your nice comments. I appreciate it!

Cliff, sorry about your tree mess. Did you clean it up or just call it a loss?

John Goerzen said...

Hey Cliff,

If you lived in Kansas, you wouldn't have such a problem with trees ;-)

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I should have known the solution would be so simple!

(And happy birthday to Terah, too!)

*raises my hand I have had the same blogger trouble. A sign kept coming up we are down this we are down for that. The last one was they are intigrating? Don't kill the messenger. I am glad it is working today.

Sorry about the tree. Funny how those little wrenches just get tossed out at us.

I learned the hard way about trying to remove a tree from a field. My chain saw blade was useless as soon as it bit that good black dirt. I hope you can find a place to hook on to it and drag it out of the way.

Have a good day!

Cliff Morrow said...

Raggedy, I had a chain sharpening man tell me, "you can hit nails or rocks, but what ever you do, don't let the chain hit dirt.
