Good to hear you had a day that you felt good while working. There is nothing like being out in the sunshine to hake you feel better.

One of my just bought heifers has mastitis.  She came in with a soft scab on a teat, now it's worsened.  Sent the seller a text.  I'll call him in a bit.  He doesn't know how to text, but can read them.  

 As I finished milking this morning, teresa called & said there was a heifer stuck/wedged in the concrete feeder.  I saw a bully heifer butting others last night & worried there'd be one knocked over into the feeder.  I lifted her out with the hay fork.  She was a little bloated & beat up, but I think she'll stand once she rests a bit.

As usual, a great day is followed by a lesser day, but not that bad.  Kinda hurting more in the joints, BUT, I'm still in a great mood because..................... :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:   SHOP ROOF IS ON!

I was working on the sawdust loader & heard something.  looked that way & Marty S. was on the roof taking measurements.  They started at about 10 & finished at 2.  Josh & I helped to make it easier on them getting the metal up there.  I am SO happy to see that done.  Now I'll begin on the outer wall metal next week.  :thumbs:

Ok....Marty Stillwell then!  :D   It is a load off me for sure.  I can do the walls easy enough, but not roofing.  Checked my pull type backhoe out to see why it won't fire.  The CDI has almost no spark at all.  May end up putting another engine on it.

  Milk in just a bit, then off tomorrow.  Can't wait!   

  Oh, and the heifer that was stuck in the feeder finally got up.  after I pulled her out of the feeder, she sure looked rough.  She got up, so I let her back into the field and will keep an eye on her.

Glad you have a roof on that shop! I'm sure that takes a load off your mind. Want me to drop over and help with the side walls? I'm free tomorrow between 9 & 4!

I would take you up on that, but being it's my day off farm duty, I'll have to pass!  :smilewink:

Oh, and I looked up the parts for the 4A032 on my backhoe.  A complete CDI ignition kit, containing EVERYTHING from the crank rotor to the firing tip of the spark plugs is only $52.50 plus shipping.  So I ordered it today.  Way easier than fitting a different engine.

Pretty much doing nothing today.  Taking a break for once.  Kind of bored, but for the sake of my body, my mind will just have to suck it up.  All I've done today is to install & configure our new printer/fax 4-in-one.  The Lexmark we've had a reasonably short time has been nothing but problems, so trashing it.

I've never owned a home printer that was worth a darn. And for that matter I've never had a high dollar xerox machine at work that wasn't broken very 3 days.

We have 5 of them in the building and they are all broke or mostly broke.

Good you are taking it easy for a change. I like the HP 2540 printer i just bought! It doesn't do fax, but I can scan, copy or print.
