Well, now that the Libtards are gaining traction, it might be time to push for a subsidy on hay production!  :huh:   :rolleyes:  ;)

If you are interested in that  make sure you report all acreage farmed at the FSA . The last couple of programs have included Alfalfa. And if you are not interested don't bother .I find it interesting that FSA will add 80 approved specialty crops to the program list and not grass hay .

A men i remember well  the old rotary dial hanging on the wall right inside the door and we were on a party line shared buy 4 house holds.    

 

 

I came in at the end of the rotary area. Had one in the barn that had a 60'so or 70's era phone book hanging with and this would have been very early 90's. Once it quit the modern phones just would not last a year in that environment. House I grew up in has/had a wall mounted one that I had to disconnect to get internet to work...wasn't going to figure out how to wire in a filter to it. Still there when I sold the house. Grandma's house that I live in now had a wall mounted one until life line needed to be installed and if I ever find it, it will get reinstalled. Still have a desktop one that someday will get plugged back in.

Because if they did every idiot with a mower and some free time would be at FSA signing up their “hay farm” postage stamps of fields that shouldn’t be touched in the first place.

I’m not trying to put down the large acreage grass farmers out in OR, ID and WA

  Got news for you , for the first 20+years of my life a pay phone was a dime . 

 

Ditto, but might have been longer than 20 years, in the sticks where I live.  ;)

You got me sheep, but I do remember only having to dial 5 numbers for local calls (we couldn't afford long distance BTW :o ).  Our phone number was something like MOhawk4-4492, didn't need to dial the MO (66) part.  But apparently we were more upscale than Endrow, had a two-party line.  :lol:

Ayup, payphones! When I was a kid payphones were common! Used to be rows of them in bus stations & railroad stations, etc!

Used to go down the line checking the coin return slots! Every now and again would score a dime! Once in a while, more!

Did not think it would start a trip down memory lane for everyone. My drive to college was 41/2 hours no cell phone, at 18 mom and dad only said call when you get there. Now these helicopter parents would have died from stress under the same conditions. I think parents back my day were don't worry we'll make more. LOL

MERRY CHRISTMAS

I also had a rotary phone, and a two party line up until I was in the 7th grade.
