Sorry to hear about your Aunt.  I hope everything goes well tomorrow.

 

She lived a good life, and a long one at 94.  Mom's last sister.  I wasn't real close to her, as we rarely saw her, but Aunt Geneva & her husband Joe were darn good people!  She only spent a couple weeks in the nursing home.  Until then she lived at home and did well.  Joe died around 15 years ago.  It's sad, but instead of grieving, her life should be celebrated.  I know it'll be extra hard on her 3 daughters.

I agree on the Celebration, Daniel. I'm sure she was very happy with what life gave her!

Sorry to hear about your Aunt Daniel. Hope tomorrow goes best it can.

 

Good to hear you had time to work on the 1130, it will serve you well on the silage wagon.

It tires Dad out, but he enjoys the heck out of being able to do some work again.  I don't think there will be any way he can run the chopper again, so if that is the case, I'm not sure what we'll do this fall.  So hard to find willing workers, even temporary.  The hardest part will be finding someone capable, and one that won't tear up our machinery, or get hurt.

 

How many days do you need me this fall, maybe we can work it around the plow day. :D  Either way, I'll come up and help chop silage !! :thumbs:

Brian, I appreciate the offer, and you better watch what you say, as I may be hollering!  :rolling:   

  Got a sick cow I called my vet to come check.  He'll be here while I'm gone to Aunt Geneva's funeral, but Josh will be here.

All the rain & blowing cool wind from last weekend has the whole herd 10% down on milk & many have the squirts.  They're off feed too.  All part of it, but this kind of thing usually comes late November, not late April/early May.

My cousin Billy did most of the eulogy.  He did an awesome job of it too!  Great stories with great meaning.  

  Was worried I wouldn't get there.  Some of you know I had some crazy problems with my 98 Grand Cherokee starting a few months ago.  After a few parts installed that didn't help, I finally put in a new fuel pump, and problems went away for a good 6 weeks now.  Well, on the way to the funeral, it died at a stop light.  It's a fast traffic light, so I had to hit the brakes, and right then I felt it stumble, but it recovered.  But when we came to the full stop, she died like I shut the key off.  Slipped in neutral & she fired right up & no more issues the next 35 miles back home.  Glad I got there, but if it had not started, I'd have called for a ride to the funeral.   Back to the drawing board!

  Cow had a DA (displaced abomasum/twisted stomach) like I told my vet Kevin I thought it was.  He got the stomach stitched to the gut wall to keep it in the right place till all gets better, so hoping she makes it.  Next couple days will tell the tale.  I got home 3 to 4 minutes before Kevin arrived.

Daniel, Just thought I would throw this out there. With all the news about the GM ignition switch, could you possibly have a bad one?  Have you checked for any recalls on your vehicle?
