Wow, out of urea. Hope Y'all didn't make any big sales to any shady characters!! :D  Hope you can find a good used shaft to fix the baler up and get finished. It was very hot and humid here today also. Glad to be inside cooling off.

 The danged heifers started rolling my bales off yesterday, so I grouped the rolls in a dip between hills.  I'm gonna try to move & gate the heifers into a smaller field tonight so they can't mess with them,

That would last maybe 10 minutes.  Heat index about 100 at 7pm, and still 97 after 8.

Must be way behind in the news....not aware of shady characters sales of urea.  Sure do hope for a good used half shaft in the morning.

Got the damn cows in the small field so they can't create carnage now.  The grouped bales were untouched overnight, but no worries now as I can move them whenever.  No cattle will go back in that field for the year.  Of these 16 head, 11 or 12 will go direct to the back 40 with the bull.  The smaller 2 will stay put till they get a bit bigger, and the 2 beef will maybe get sold to a neighbor.

Been a code Red here, hope to get some rain next day or two get rid of this Ozone.  Next weekend looks to be beautiful.

Nasty humid weather, but I've not looked at the long range forecast yet.

Just finished some mowing around the silage pits in the dark.  Teresa mowed the house yard this morning.  Early ending work days just mean more work gets done at home afterwards.  At least it's getting done!

Today was sufferingly hot!  Boss told me to load several banded piles of steel fence posts on a flatbed.  Got them all loaded, then he said "sorry, I forgot to tell you we needed room for 2 pallets of seed too.  So had to remove all them to restack them on the truck to make room.  That's ok though, cause it's my job to do whatever.  Took the load to the other store and their forklift spun in the gravel and was stuck.  The guy went to get the loader to get it out, and for some reason shut it off before I could say anything.  I had saw another guy having to jump it due to a low battery just before this.  So we had to jump it.  Finally we got the truck unloaded, then had to load 5 pallets of feed to take back to my store.  The sun was brutal, and I was getting so hot I could barely stand it.  Got everything strapped down & headed back.  Got to my store to find out the supply truck finally came (was a couple days late) bringing all the feed I went to get.  Now we certainly have enough.  Then off to fetch a tender truck left for a farmer.  He didn't use all the fertilizer, so I had to offload into the scales, load it back on the truck, then offload it into a bin. 

  At lunch I was dealing with a splitting headache from the heat, so I asked the boss if I could take lunch up at the shop in front of my fan & just chill a few.  Took 3 Tylenol and started feeling better.  Got to call it a day at 5pm, and windy was whipping out, as storms were approaching.  One of my co-workers had strawberries he bought at an Amish farm today and I ate one.  DELICIOUS....so I headed into the storm to get me some.  Got the last gallon plus a quart.  Made Teresa a very happy camper when she tasted them.  

  Found a used front half PTO shaft for my round baler and Teresa drove to get it while I was at work, but NO hay baling tonight, as I got rained out.  Kinda glad, as I'm whipped from the heat.  Corn was twisting badly, so I'm also glad for the grain farmers.

  So tonight is rest time, and much needed!

My bro-in-law is in New York for job training and has been telling me how cool it has been up there.  That day he said it was a high around 54 with wind & rain.  Crazy weather this time of year for sure!

I had to shut the fans down while welding as they blow the argon away!

We have a "welding area" no fans. No air flow at all it seems. It gets boiling back there!
