 Taking him the Ball Hollow water and his favorite house shoes this afternoon.

 It's good to hear his desire for things is returning. Won't be long and he will be following you around.

You needed the rest and it's a good thing you got it! Being well rested makes everything seem more manageable.

 

Yes, getting the extra sleep sure made me feel better today....more like myself.  Now if things would just quit breaking around here!   :thumbs:

Glad to hear you got soem rest. Nothing like a couple of extra hours to recharge the batteries on occasion. I actually got 8 hours last night. Of course it is pouring rain and I am not going to go out and work in it.

Get home OK Craig?  Sure hope so!  Great that your Mom (my sister Wanda) is better!

  Today is busy. My list:  Need to make checks out for bills, then open up a new silage pit this morning (milked this morning).  After lunch, time to get started repairing free stalls.

  Josh will clean up the parlor this morning & get a cow & calf in.  After lunch he'll scrape manure from the lots.  

Whoever gets to it first, several rolls of hay to put out.

Hey Daniel, how does it effect you if that farm bill isn't past right away or it expires before a new one is renewed?

Been reading a little about it, fear of milk going to $8 a gallon

I don't think they will ever let it expire.  They will run it to the wire arguing points, but they will pass something, even if just an extension of the current.  I get so tired of the games played with all our lives.  But we won't get into that here.  No fear, you won't be paying that much for milk in my lifetime.

Got to go finish getting things cleaned up from opening the silage pit.  Have to scrape a layer of rot off, then pile it up out of the way to haul out later.  Took about 50 tires off & hauled up the the tire pile.  I will also go ahead & feed this evening's silage before I go to help my daughter Jenn.  The newborn calf turned out to be in the 14+' gully, so it took Josh & me to get it out via a long rope & halter. 

 Jenn has only been divorced 45 days and her X is already engaged.....hmmm.  He told her she didn't have to be in a rush getting the rest of her things, but now he piled them in his garage & wants it out today.  So I have to drop the stall repairs yet again.

Got the silage pit area all squared away & evening silage fed early.  Taking a coffee break, then heading to get all Jenn's stuff to her new home.  Time to cut the last cord to her 2-timing X!

Willie, he wasn't there.  He just left the garage door open.  I could have took all his other stuff if in there if I wanted to, but not my style.  I could have carried his stuff & laid it all over his drive though!  :rolling:   Still not my style.  Best thing is just let it go.  No good comes from vengeance.

  But got her stuff in her new home where it belongs!  :thumbs:

Milked the cows, about to eat breakfast (I check in here BEFORE eating), then back out to worm the milking herd with pour over wormer.  Warm & dry enough to get it done today before rains later in the week.

Good to know, doesn't really effect me though, I don't drink milk but on rare occassion. Sorry, just allergic to it when I was a baby, never developed a taste.

Now my son, I think he could keep you in business, we buy about 3 gals per week for him. :smilewink:

Now if it was to get up to $8 a gallon, I would be getting back into the dairy goat buisness and milking my own :thumbs:

You're a good man Daniel. Having two little girls I don't want to think about the day when they will have their own men and I sure as he!! don't want to think about what I would do if he didn't treat her right. I hope that I grow into "dad of girls" role one day... otherwise I might end up in jail.
