  • When God says, ‘I told you so’

    One of the great pleasures in life is being able to say, “I told you so.”

    I don’t get to say it often, but when I do, especially when I can say it to my husband, I do it with immense glee. I may even dance around and sing.

    Moms get to say I told you so a lot.

    Remember Ralphie’s mom in “A Christmas Story”? Ralphie kept asking for Red Ryder BB gun and his mom kept saying, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

    Hay bale or barn fires can be prevented if hay is baled at appropriate moistures and temperatures are monitored of recently baled hay.
