Nancy Drew FAIL!!!!

OK, so we live on a ranch owned by my hubby's boss, there is a 12 ton feeder out front that the farm hands come to every morning and get feed for the cattle from. Usually they use their pick up trucks that are equipped with a feedbox to get the grain out to the moo moos.

I've seen 4-5 different trucks roll through here and the other morning I saw a yellow tractor with a tow behind feed box pull up to the bin and get a LARGE amount of grain out of it.

We have all John Deere tractors here. I tell myself!!!

I therefore believe something is wrong!!! I'm not about to go out and ask the guy if he works for us!! No WAY!!! If he's heisting grain, that could have turned bad really quickly. So, I hide in the house with my handy dandy little digital camera taking pictures of the Tractor, Trailer, and man.

After Bill (hubby) gets home from work I ask him if they got a new tractor, surely thinking he'd say no, but to my surprise he says, well, a couple months back we got a Challenger. I had no idea what that meant and when I put 2 and 2 together, I realized that he HAD told me about the new tractor I just didn't realize that Challenger meant big yellow tractor!

So I confess and show him the pictures. He literally pats me on the head and gives me a kiss on the forehead and thanks me for looking after the farm!!!

I felt like SUCH a dork!!! But if something HAD been wrong, I had pictures!!!

Amy's attempt at being Nancy Drew.....FAILED!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Its OK "Nancy" I would have gone out and confronted the guy. Then the guy would be teasing my husband and I would be very embarrassed. I like your smart thinking and getting photo proof better.

Hah! Nice still hear that nothing was wrong.

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Well, even though you didn't quite accomplish anything this time, I wouldn't let it deter you from taking the same actions if something suspicious ever happens again. Yah never know when you might actually be seeing something wrong.

Either way...very funny story!

LOL... that was my 2nd concern!!! I didn't want to be teased for the next um-teen years!!!

When we first moved in they were spraying the pastures, the owners uncle who has had a few strokes was running the sprayer and they kept all the chemicals and water tank here. He came every morning at 7:30 sharp, left for lunch at 12:30 sharp and then went home at 3pm EVERY DAY. One day I didn't see him at lunch and it was 5pm and he still hadn't left. I got worried and called my hubby. Bill called his boss who called his son who call a couple more guys and gathered a search party( he was working on over 7000 acres)......John (the man spraying) had just decided to finish up one pasture so he could move on to a new one the next day. He was perfectly fine and I thought he'd hate me. He came back to the house that evening and thanked me for watching out for him!!!! I was so relieved that he wasn't embarrased by the situation, I liked the ol fart and didn't want him laying somewhere!!!

I guess you should always trust your gut!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
