Missouri river

Missouri River as seen from the Highway 47 bridge

Footnote: Due to our extended drought the river is so low that we are starting to see things that everyone has forgotten were hidden there.  
Like these outcroppings.

This is not the same cornfield featured in Yesterdays Post 
But, I fear it will have the same fate.

Not worth Saving


Marthsville, Missouri 
August 11, 2012



I am bending my own rules today.  Normally, this blog is reserved for posting a photo a day that needs few words, but today I'm giving you a twofer of both words and photos.  I believe both are needed to tell this story.  Something is missing in these photos.  Normally, there would be a wagon under the chute to catch the corn.  This year's crop was not worth saving so it is going back on the ground.
