Agriculture in Ohio with an Eye to the Sky (Sky Watch Friday)


KALIDA, Ohio::Man spells out marriage proposal in Ohio field (Wish I had a picture of that) She said yes and date is set.

Lowell Altvater, 80 of Sandusky,Ohio thought he saw a rat in his barn and fired his shotgun at it. It turned out to be his wife's hat, which she was wearing. Everyone was ok and Lowell got a new pair of glasses.(Columbus Dispatch, Nov95)


In 1926 at The Ohio State University Maudine Ormsby was nominated and elected homecoming queen. Only problem Maudine Ormsby was a cow.


Wrap your mind around the fact; we now have “Automated laser-guided milking machines”.


Ok I will answer the question you have all been asking yourselves; did Maudine Ormsby (the cow) get to go to the homecoming dance? No she didn’t because of her size she was banned to the barn. Maybe that is how the term “Barn Dance” came into existence.

Well after hanging out in the “Fields” of Ohio I am getting a little hungry. Sooo:


I’ll just head over to the new IHOP here in Lancaster,Ohio. Ooops  The grand opening is set for Sept. 8th 2009.


With my keen mind and use of the internet I was able to come up with all the useful facts listed above Joe Todd

Some great shots but none can compare to your head (I don't mean the one on your shoulders).

Sylvia K said...

I love your shots, love the blue skies and white clouds, but it's your sense of humor that makes the day -- evening, whatever and I love that, too!

Have a great weekend!

Joe: Cool look at the Ohio skies over the farmland. I'd like to see a cow win at The Ohio State today. LOL
