Brought in 20 hay rolls from the field this evening after temps dropped. Just bringing 2 rolls at a time. 50 more to go, but have to fill in a ditch first to cross to get to those 50 rolls.

 

#$%&  ditches!!     

 

Try not to get over heated..        Rick

Rain made ditch??

Yes, just below the spring where your Mom & Dad used to get their water.  Not that deep, but deep enough I can't get the bale wagon across, and if bringing out on tractor 3pt bale mover, the bale gets drug off.

Got an old pipe/culvert you could lay in there? Keep it from washing out again!

I could put in a tile, but there is so much water coming through when it rains heavy that it will wash anything out except a concrete crossing.

Went to funeral home visitation for my cousin Greg Whitlock tonight.  Thought I had a hold on my emotions till I saw him in the casket.  So sad to say goodbye.  Talked with some of his kids and told them a couple stories they hadn't heard.  Made them smile.  Greg had gone to a funeral the day before, and THE day of his accident.  Now it's his funeral just days later.  We never know when our last day will come.  So lets enjoy each other's friendship while we can!

The last several days I haven't been feeling so good.  Over the weekend, it got worse, with heart palpitations and leg cramps keeping me awake late in the night.  I've always sweated buckets, but getting older changes what it does to you.  I finally figured out my potassium level has dropped.  Took a potassium supplement pill last night, and feeling better.   Teresa picked up several bottles of Gatorade so I can keep my electrolytes up.  Today was blistering hot, but made the best of it.  

  Work was very busy today, so I couldn't make my cousin's funeral.  I told his family I might not be able to come, and they told me not to worry, as they know where my heart is.  Still makes me feel bad.

   I had fertilizer to tender today, as well as work in the shop, unloading bundles of wooden posts, etc.  I also helped mix some chemicals, and wasn't careful enough.  Must have had residue on me that ended up in my right eye.  Talk about burning like fire.  Thought I had it rinsed well enough, but on way back to the store with the tender truck after delivering fertilizer, I was right near home, so made a pit stop to wash my eye out real good.  Got it all out & burning was & still is completely gone.

  Got 6/10" of rain after getting home.  Dad's central air isn't working well, but keeping him comfortable enough.  I'm out of R22, so an HVAC business is right behind my work, so going over 1st thing in the morning & getting them to service Dad's unit.  I checked it all out and compressor and fans are running, but just not cooling well enough.  Hoping it just needs some charge.

First thing to check if the filter is clean is the condenser and the evaporator and make sure they are clean. The condenser is probably the most neglected part of a home air conditioning system.

Both clean, great air flow.
