Today I'm cleaning the rest of the silage out of our smaller silage pit so we can start the final wall rebuild. This silage at the end of this pit is old silage & not very good at all, and in fact, rotten in some places. So using the manure spreader to put it onto a hay field for fertilize. Hauled several loads, and many more to go this afternoon. We have just enough blocks already delivered to lay the bottom run once we get the old silage cleared, and the dirt foundation prepared. 3 more loads of block & we'll finish the walls. Come spring we'll have about 55 yards of concrete to pour.

You could spill a few yards of the concrete over here is you don't mind.



Sounds like you are staying out of trouble anyway.

That's quite a contraption! Never seen one before. All hydraulically controlled by the looks of the cylinders and lines. More like a Poo cannon than a gun!


That thing must be a hit at parties!! :toilethead: :shoot3: :bigrofl:

I need a poo flinger cannon for when I clean out the dog pen. That would teach my nosy neighbor.

Been a crazy morning. Teresa is sick with the flu, so I got a little late start milking. Then Dad mis-read the scales on the silage wagon, and thought I had already put the grain/supplement mix into the silage mix wagon. Instead of calling me on his cell, he just put in corn silage, then fed it out. Then he came to the parlor & mentioned my putting the feed mix in it last night. I told him there wasn't any put in it. BIG boo boo. We have nothing to get the feed evenly top dressed over the silage, so I told him to put another 1,000lbs of silage in the wagon, then mix the 1,000lbs of feed to it so he could feed it over the top of the plain silage. Hoping they eat the most of it. Very important to keep the cow's ration the same, so this may throw their stomachs off just a bit. Then I fed the calves after milking, which Teresa normally does. Heard tin whipping from the crazy winds still blowing, and found 3 sheets of roofing flopping wildly. Got a ladder & my cordless drill armed with screws & got on the roof. I could barely hold the tin down by sitting on it. It was trying to lift my 210lbs with it!!!!! Finally in the house, so maybe I can find something to fix for breakfast...late as it may be for breakfast at 10am.

Back home from shopping. Got Teresa more meds, and all the things on her list grocery wise, but she wanted orange sherbet (all she cares to eat when sick), and they were completely out. Before I left Walmart, Dad calls to say James, our logger neighbor might be bringing a load of giant lego blocks. 2 minutes later James calls to say he IS indeed bringing a load. Dang, I'm 30 miles away, but he wasn't loaded yet, just on his way, so maybe time to make it before he gets there. Then Dad calls again (hard pushing a full cart with just one hand in a super crowded store!)....he needs a ceiling fan speed control switch. Dang again....I just came from Lowes when I got some insulation suspension wires. Back to Lowes again. Stop by JD to see about seals for the Bush Hog transaxle....one in stock, one ordered. Shoot towards home, but stop at a grocery nearer home...BIG tub of orange sherbet. Good to go. And once on my road, I met James & his "empty" truck. Josh was still here, so they were already unloaded. Now time to begin afternoon chores. I sure hope the cows are nice tonight.

That makes for a long day. Almost feel tired just reading it. Brings back memories of doing relief milking at a neighbor. I got there at my normal time to find another guy mixing the feed. He doubled the minerals without realizing it. Messed up the cows for days.

Sounds like a fun day so far. Just think how good the bed will feel tonight.

Oh yeah....it'll feel gooood! But the wind is blowing so hard, even with a proper height chimney vent on the very top of the house, the wind is shutting down the propane furnace because of back pressure. I have to reset it every little while. Sure be glad when this wind settles down! Off to milk my cows now. :wave:

I see women pushing a cart full of groceries and chatting on the phone all the time! Whats up with that!!! :smilewink:

That was good of you to make a special stop for the sherbet, your a good husband and I would think it is worth at least 10 bonus points. I sure hope she gets to feeling better soon.
