Who cares if the furrows are straight, anyway! The idea is to turn some ground!

Well, more like granite.  Remember those holes I claimed were from sunken field drainage tiles?   Well, truth be told, that's where people have come with those stone cutting chain saws to get free headstones for graves.

One of those holes almost swallowed up Nashcub's 1450 a couple years ago.

Been to town all morning, being driven as I'm not allowed to drive while under the influence of mine altering drugs (I told the docs that was normal for me).  Got Teresa a new refrigerator ordered as ours is so old it's twice as expensive to operate, plus it wants to work so good it'll freeze stuff in the fridge part as good as the freezer section.  Been wanting an underneath freezer style for a while now anyway to stop the aching bending every time we needed a little something.  Got a few items at TSC, a bite of lunch at Sonic, then came home, and I am tired.  Neck held up pretty decent.

Being soybeans are going in all our ground this year, and with not nearly the impaction factor from chopping, I am hoping for a much looser soil this Fall.

Yes, it's very important to take care of our plow ground to make it as soft as possible for us !! :smilewink: :dancingbanana:

Now don't fuss too much at me guys, but I got some seat time today.  The side yard got too tall for the self propelled push mower, so I put my soft neck brace on and mowed like a snail on the JD 430.  MAN DID IT FEEL GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Seriously made me feel great, and with power steering was no strain in any way, plus I have the hydraulic ride seat mount.  No way I'll mow the rough ground period till Dr clears me for it, as it's a much more demanding lay of land, plus bumpier even with a hydraulic ride seat on the JD F935.  

  I also drilled the little 2 acre calf lot a few minutes ago with the dab of Sudex left in the seed drill, again, at a snail's pace.  Everything was hooked up, so getting in/on the 2 tractors was the most effort I had to put out, and again, minimal.  Wasn't much in the way of accomplishment, but sure did a world of good for me!  

  I got the zig zag vision as I finished the drilling, so looked up side effects of my pain killer...hydrocodone, and one of them is migraine headaches, so at least I know why I've had 2 lately since not having one in years.

  I have had a WONDERFUL day even if this headache turns into a monster, which I don't think it will.  Tomorrow I'll likely take it easy, then Thursday is all afternoon for Dr appointments.

  Every day gets easier, less painful, and just plain more enjoyable!   :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:   I promise I'll not overdo things!
