Signs Of The Season


     A farmers grain truck and wagon loaded with soy beans is ready to be driven away to market.
       The obvious weed line is the fence line to the Zink farm just east of our plat. 

       To me, farming is one if not the best careers a person can have.  It is also the toughest job you can have.

I just saw your unforsaken comment.

There was a time, years ago, when I worked at NCR and people were leaving there to take big paying jobs at Frigidaire. Those dried up and so has most of what GM used to be. My neighbor thinks he might lose his pension though I don't know where he worked.

I left this reply on my Canon Blog for you to pass on to whomever...

I used to do a lot of book, magazine and poetry illustration and never made a lot of money but it was a good "second job." Most people get a start in trade publications, like PEN magazine (public employee news) that I used to do covers for. Then there are pulp magazines like True West and Wild West and similar magazines that do not pay a lot but can often provide a steady stream of paydays. I will probably show one of those illustrations for True West but probably on one of my other blogs.
