No doubt in my mind that you will handle anything they can thro atcha. I do however, understand the anxiety. I,'ve acquired some myself yesterday. Got told my gall bladder must come out. I said I didn't mind as long as I can go to this plow day. Been telling mother that I,'ve been looking forward to this so much I knew something was bound to happen. See ya in 2 1/2 weeks.

It's just the first time ever making any of my living off the farm, so it's all new territory in a way.

Hope it's not like the fist day of high school for the freshman ,, ,,,

Being it's not the busiest of the season yet, and the fact the ground is wet to China, I don't have to be there till 8.  So after feeding silage & eating breakfast it's now coffee time with you guys for a few minutes.  

 Been last April 28th since I fed silage in the dark like this morning.  Hadn't missed it a bit, but I'm back to it till pasture gets growing good.  Still lots of sinus problems, but can make the day easy enough.  Both looking forward to today and a little uneasiness due to my body not being what it used to be.  I have no idea what will be on my work agenda today, but I'll find out soon enough.

Had a great 1st day!  I got off at 5, but ran out to Mom's as it's her 91st birthday, and needed to refill their med dispensers, so just now getting home.  Had to listen & take online quizzes for workplace sexual/physical/non-verbal  harassment, deterring company theft, customer security......you all likely know the drill, but new to me.  That took 2 1/2 hours at least.  But Dane and I cut the fertilize bin off a spreader buggy and sat it on a brand new chassis and got it all welded in place.  Tomorrow we'll likely finish it.  Torching & welding was just like being at home repairing my own stuff, so right up my alley.  The people I work with are great, and I knew most of them for years as friends.  I may end up driving a fertilizer spreading machine.  The current driver sees a specialist next week about 4 bulging discs in his neck.  Likely he'll have surgery, and if he does, I might be driving this:

Gotta eat, shower & sleep, but gotta run back out to Dad's first.  Problem with his med dispenser.

Glad it worked out! Sounds like a good job.

Best part about working on other people's stuff. Find more problems or need more parts? Not on your dime!!

Makes it more enjoyable. Ive always been one to save money at my work but when you gotta order more parts I don't shed a tear like I would on my own stuff

Glad your first day went well Daniel, I used to spread lime with a Frightliner tri-axle and fertilizer with a old IH S model single axle, I have some old pics but I will have to scan them as it was long before I owned a digital camera!!!!
