Got the sealing shaft/stopper out this morning.  Gonna take a while to repair, so no hauling today, least not with this wagon.  Strong ammonia smell inside the tank, so ran my shop vac on exhaust to purge it.  Still could smell it, but not bad at all.

This is the "stopper".  The seat it mates to is so eroded that the stopper was touching the shaft that spins the discharge blade at the rear.  Now that I have it out, I see I don't have to drill & bolt...I can just cut a hole in the center of the rubber I'll be using for the new seal, then use the large center shaft nut to hold a metal plate to secure the rubber to it.

Dad just called, and will tell me more when he gets here later, but his bladder cancer is definitely back & he'll be having surgery on the 9th of this month.  I believe that is the same day Robert Webb's wife Kimme is having surgery.  I don't know if it will be laser surgery again, or something more invasive.  I'll know more later today.

He knows it!  He was also telling his 2 Urologist Docs about plow day today.  They want Dad or me to be sure to let them know ahead of time of plow day next year....they plan to come to it!

  Dad dreads surgery of course, and he didn't even ask what exactly they will be doing.  He just wants it done & over with.  

  I got the wagon stopper repaired, and we were going to spread some poo, but I have to get some lumpy feed out of a bin before my new batch arrives tomorrow, so gotta get out the grinder mixer to put the clumpy feed into.  Once gotten out, I'll use this for calf feed next time they run out, mixed with ground shelled corn.  Not bad feed, just older & picked up some moisture. Josh is scraping the cow lots anyway, so we have a full day's work yet just the same.  I told Dad he oughta rest today anyway.  He said their camera poking up in there really hurt this time.    We can haul poo all day tomorrow.

I too hope to be poo'ing all day long!  But I also have to milk morning & night tomorrow, so I'll definitely be totally pooped out when I'm done!  Got the bin emptied and ready for feed delivery.  Wasn't a bad day really, but tiring.  But I made progress, so it's all good!  Today was simply 3 steps forward....none back.   :thumbs:

VERY busy today!  Josh is finishing milking so I can treat a cow with a bad uterus infection (the one I pulled the afterbirth from a few days ago).  Then it's poo time!
