This picture was taken in 1906, and shows the Tobacco Warehouse in Louisville, Kentucky. I wonder at what point in the process the tobacco left the warehouse. I guess my question is, was the warehouse just for storing and then shipping the tobacco, or what part of the curing/processing done there.
Took a quick day trip to Boerne, Texas with Mrs. PJM. We took my mom, and our daughter along. A while back I was going somewhere and got lost in an ice storm, and ended up in this quaint little town called "Boerne" that I had never heard of. I found my way back to the highway, but since then have always wanted to go back and visit Boerne. It is a nice little town, and all the buildings look like something from the 1800's. We had a nice time looking around.
On the way there we were on Interstate 10, and we looked off to the side, and there was the most enormous John Deere tractor dealership you have ever seen. Mrs. PJM saw me staring as we went by, and she said, "Maybe we should stop and have a look at those tractors". I said, "No dear, I want to make sure you have all the time you need to look around Boerne".
I view it as a positive sign that she suggested we go in and look at tractors. I passed on stopping, as I felt it would build points by showing she was more important than the tractor. I feel that my chances are going to be most excellent in getting the tractor and achieving "Gentleman Farmer" status by this summer.
