Hello, I'm Rich
It always makes me laugh when I say "Hi, I'm Rich" because back when I was a teenager, I was working at a restaurant, and one day the manager came in and told me that there was a new girl that I needed to train. So, I walked over to this new girl (who wasn't that hard to look at), and loudly proclaimed "Hi, I'm Rich". She looked at me kind of funny, then about a dozen of my co-workers started laughing out loud because it sounded like I had unsuccessfully tried to use the world's worst pickup line.
I've read a number of blogs for a number of years, commenting frequently on a few, and thanks to one blogger that goes by the name Ron who said he would be interested in reading a blog about my world, I decided to finally try to give him and others a glimpse into that world.
Typically a story starts with a logical starting point, or a
beginning that methodically explains the main characters, but I've
decided to just jump right in with what I'm doing right now and hope that everyone that's interested can eventually follow what is going on (after all, if you met me in person you'd have to do the same thing).
My quick and dirty background is that I live in Oklahoma and make my living on a small farm raising cattle and growing small grains like wheat and grain sorghum, so most of this blog will be about the farm along with some deer hunting, gardening, bio-char, and everything else I'm interested at the time.
So, if you don't like cattle, farming, tractors, deer hunting, gardening, little bulldozers, muddy trucks, chainsaws, bio-char, or welding then this blog might not be for you. If you are interested in some of that stuff then you might be able to tolerate this blog (I'm not making any promises though).
