Good! Yesterday and today, when I was tedding and raking hay with our MF 165, I thought of the pictures of your broken front axle. You always have to keep your eyes open for holes!

Been hot as Hades the last few days, but making headway on the new shop build.  Have the plastic moisture barrier laid down & spreading gravel over it this morning.  Should get gravel all done today.

Got the gravel all in & raked down by hand.  A hot day & hard work combines for a long day, with milking chores on each end.  I am shot for sure tonight.  Next week we'll start digging holes & planting 16' 6x6's.

Intended to get the dry cows in following morning milking & spray them for flies, but Mother Nature decided to drop a surprise....just on me! 

  Inside the red circle, I'm in the heavier yellow spot!  Oh well, I'll still be able to get the spraying done in a little while.

Naw....got my dry cows in this morning before it got too hot to work with them.  All sprayed for flies, and boy am I glad....so many flies on the poor things...but not now!  Got the hay tarp on the new hay stack in the empty small silage pit, but still have to finish lashing it down.  That's pretty much all I'll do before afternoon feeding/milking.

Milked the cows this am, but with my left leg hurting for whatever reason, I forgot to pull milk samples on the 1st group of cows, so now that has to be done tomorrow.  Going to patch yet another leak in the mixer wagon floor this morning (wish I could get time to put new floor in).  Then it's feed-out auger drive chain needs replaced.  Maybe after lunch we can get the corner posts for the new shop put in.  Yesterday I went & got 18 bags of quickrete for setting the nine 6x6 posts.  Gonna be another hot one today!

Silage wagon has new chain, and tensioner repaired.  Hole in floor is patched, and new o-rings in the tractor's remote couplers.  Good to go for now.  Contractor for my phone company is set up in my side yard to drill across under my yard, then out under the road for the new fiber optic upgrade.  After lunch I'm gonna try to get my corner posts for the new shop in the ground.
