Glad to see that you may be seeing a glimmer of light through the tunnel.  Hope nothing comes along to dig a longer tunnel.

Guess it would help if I keep a shovel close by!

Fed silage, then used an electric chain saw to cut off the top excess of the new shop 6x6 poles.  The chain saw blade was dull as a stone, and I couldn't find my file.  So I used a steady hand with an angle grinder to sharpen it.  It cut the post like butter!

  Mowed most of the yard, then Teresa got back with pizza!  Just ate, so I'll wait a few minutes before finishing the lawn.  Been a great day!...... finally!

I sure hope you had weather like we did today.  I rode up to a town about 20 miles to the north, it took me 3 hrs to get home.  It was so beautiful I took the long way up and over the mountains and then down to the west and finally swung around from the south and made it home with a bunch more mileage on the bike. :thumbs:

We sure did!  Beautiful day, sunshine, low humidity, and much lower temps.  Had a good breeze over half the day too.  Barely broke a sweat today!  :thumbs:

Glad to hear you had a good day.

I think I took over for you today.... $900 for my tranny rebuild, then get home to a broken sump pump at 9pm, No time to fix tonight. Good thing none of us did laundry or we would've had a flooded basement.

Got milking done, and on the new shop roof.  Got the front lower 1/2 section of roof purlins complete, and the roof/wall juncture all boxed in.  Hoping by end of day to have most of the purlins up.  Knees are protesting the ladder already, but I told them to "suck it up"!   :smilewink:

Got the back wall/roof juncture boxed, and several more purlins in place.  I will work on more purlins tomorrow morning, but after lunch it's hay time.  Next week I HAVE to start getting silage equipment serviced & ready to go, as the next week it'll be silage time.  It will take all of at least one day just to repair the crack in the truck's lift cylinder.  So the new shop work will be sidelined soon.  I would love to get the roof on before silage, but it may not happen.
