All we can do is offer up a few words and let you know we're there in spirit. Now let some grief out!

I'm glad to hear things went smooth. I was worried about what might happen after the incident with Wanda.

Dad knows he did wrong by Wanda and they are golden now. It was such a relief to see!

As sorry as I am to hear of the deaths in your family, I am glad to hear a fence is being mended.

If the survivors grow closer as a family, at least some positive has come from a loss.
He works in amazing ways and will keep your Mom safe until you're all reunited.

Oh man , my deepest condolences, i have been trying to recover from being struck down by a virus last Thursday, and missed this entirely.
I hope this lessens some stress on your dad, as stress really reaks havok on aging fragile minds... Took my mother out at only 67....now she can hardly even talk coherently. Cheer up, someone has to have broad shoulders and yoour just the man for it you put the capital "P" in Perkins !

Good deal....except for the Lincoln's mileage.  All is quiet here for the moment.  I left my cell phone at the pharmacy yesterday, so if anyone tried to reach me, well, I can't answer till noon.  I work 8 to noon but the pharmacy doesn't open till 9am.

  Dad has been doing very well.  I've been quiet due to being busy.  Night before last I had to work on water gap fences when I got off public work till bed time due to heavy rains washing them away.  Last night I had lots of mowing to do, then took out our old dishwasher only to find I don't have the proper water line fitting.  More rain coming in and lots of it.

Got the MF 1650 up and running, thanks for the help Daniel! Much appreciated! Funny thing while we were down there, up here my daughter took my 3 yr old grandson to store to get him tractor sheets for his bed, but all they had was green ones if you no what I mean, so she picked out 1 set but Josiah told her he didn't want them unless they were RED Tractors on them. That kid cracks me up lol

So your shaft couplers were ok I take it?  If you had green tractors though, then he'd want green sheets.  He's Papaw's boy!  But he can't go wrong with red!

Sprayed the garden spot with roundup this morning, then sprayed the calf lot with 2-4-D to kill the weeds.  Not doing a garden this year again due to all that's been going on, plus Teresa's Dad said we could help him with his garden and share the spoils.  Just a while ago I finally got Hogzilla home from taking it out to dad's for plow days.  

  Dad was eating some leftover chili my brother-in-law brought over a couple days ago.  He seems to be doing pretty darn well considering losing Mom.  But the stresses have lowered.   I had high hopes he'd do well, and he is.  He mowed all his yard and around the barns out there Friday.  I had intended to go mow for him, but he said he enjoyed doing it.  I just didn't know if he'd be up to it just yet.

  Stresses have lowered for all of us, and I feel more relaxed than I have been in at least 3 years, so I've been just chilling the last few days when not working.

  I got my Massey 1655D out today & got Teresa some good dirt from the old compost pile at the silage pits so she can re-pot some plants from her Mom's funeral last March that have outgrown their smaller pots.  

  Last night I got Teresa's new dishwasher installed.  It's a Bosch, and talk about quiet!  Can hardly hear the thing run.
