Got several rolls of hay put out with the MF362, then got the MF2705 filled with diesel & ready for next power outage to power the generator (hope not to need it).  Then I got the timer on the furnace fan....30 minutes on, 30 minutes off.  I also installed a new 1500 watt tank style engine heater on the Cat loader.  My wonderful wife Teresa volunteered to go pick it up at TSC.  The exact same heater was $8 higher at Autozone.  Now time to milk again, and man do I hope it goes smoothly tonight!

Non eventful milking as far as the cows go, but they did leave a ton of poo in the parlor!  I may or may not be online much tonight, as I am super dooper tired.  Once I eat, I may hit the recliner & pass right on out.  Well, I have one more chore....kerosene heater needs refilled.  Oops.......it just ran out!

And what was it you said you do in your spare time? lol. I don't know how you do it Daniel, that's been enough grief for any three men to deal with. Sure hope you can get some satisfaction out of the power company.

Man I'm upset, Cut my Ky. visit in half, forced to go back to work, cuz I'm employee of last resort, only to find out they scheduled extra crane men by mistake and I didn't need to be here :-(
Well now that I'm here and 100' up might as well enjoy the extra money. I sure would of rather helped you put things back together Daniel.

Would be true if the nap never ended.  We are in a mess with mastitis.  9 cows out of 73, and getting worse.    Lost About $750 last month, and instead of progress curing the mastitis cases, it's getting worse.  The stress is awful, and I am spread so thin it isn't funny.  Have to see if I can get furnace parts, get some things to Dad he wants, get herd records ready for tomorrow's herd vet check, and more.  Time for Ibuprofin to head off this headache I have.
