Milked cows, then welded up some stress cracks in one of the poo tanks.  Eating a bite of lunch, then spreading 9,000lbs of fertilizer onto pasture fields.  My knees sure don't like welding stuff down low!

I used to work hospital security. I could watch an autopsy and then go eat.

 Got 60 acres pasture fertilized.  And on those rolling hills member rdehli mentioned.  The pic may not make you realize how steep these hills are.  Not for most to drive on these hills.

 

Well crap, for some reason the pic won't upload.  I'll try again tonight.  Gotta run the fertilize buggy back to the Coop.

 

OK, got the pic uploaded.  The pic made the muffler looked bowed, but it's straight as can be.

 I remember once we nearly flipped over backwards going up one of them steep hills with me riding on the fender, but the equipment you had attached to the tractor kept us from going all the way over, I think it was a mower. In that moment I thought my short life was over with. I was never quite sure you didn't do that on purpose knowing the mower was back there to stop us. lol. any how I wont ever forget that day!!

Got the new front tire on the Massey 2745.  Those big old tires are tough to change!  Then I welded up the stress cracks on both manure tanks.  One is ready for next time, while the other waits for a new wheel/tire that should be delivered tomorrow....3 of them.  

  The Massey 285 dedicated to the silage mixer/feed wagon hasn't been leaking any more trans fluid from the clutch area for a few weeks now, but yesterday's evening feeding brought a small puddle again.  Drats, thought I got out of that repair!  :wallbanging:

  Big red line on radar that will be here in half an hour or less.  No watches or warning, so it must have lots of heavy rain to get all that color.  I'm at the black dot.

Things were acting weird when I tried to post (hit "post" a few times).  Guess when it cleared up & finally posted, I had all of them.  While it was stuck in limbo, I noticed the pic was attached twice, so took one out & hit "post" again!   :rolling:   All that showed on my screen was the last post, so I was clueless.  I went out the door then, so it was left for you to pick on me....deservedly so!

  Anyway, that rain went on over, and again....it's pouring.  Gonna have to wait to feed silage now.
