All day there's been a little chihuahua dog going up & down our road.  Obviously he'd been dropped.  I tried getting him to come to me to get him off the road, as I was afraid he'd be hit, as he just went down the middle of the road.  He didn't trust me at all, so I came on home.  Later while mowing he came into my yard.  I tried getting him to come to me, even put out some food, but he trotted right back up the road.  My sister in law just messaged me asking me if it was my son's dog, as they found it dead in front of his house.  Dang I hate that.  It was a cute little dog, and I would have given him a home here.  Reminded me of my little Sammy dog I had before he too got ran over in my own driveway.  Kinda bummed.

I'd hate that as well. The other part of this is the person who hit it.Lets face it I see all sorts of animals on the roads at times [including people] and some people driver's don't slow down for anything.I don't understand that ??? guess some people are to much in a hurry to get first in line.

We have strays that come through all the time.  Can't rescue them all and when they don't want to be rescued or are in such a fear that isn't much you can do. Buster and Tropper were both strays but they just made our front porch their homes and stayed.

Have a day off public work today, so got out the old Hough 30 wheel loader and filled in a ditch with gravel, then dirt, then more gravel.  Now I'm bringing in rolled hay from the field opposite the filled ditch.  Instead of using the bale wagon, which would require Teresa hauling me back & forth with the Kubota RTV to fetch bigger tractor with wagon, then to get the loader tractor (loader tractor too light to pull the loaded wagon), I'm just bringing them in 2 rolls at a time with the MF362 with a Bush Hog loader and a 3pt bale fork.  Should get all 50 rolls in today.  Got 10 in now.  Then as far as farm work, I'll still have about 40 acres to mow in the back, then need to get the 15 heifers preg checked asap.  Getting warm out, but not too bad.  Just haven't felt my best lately, partly allergies, then my neck & back have been bothering me due to the lifting at work....partly (mostly) just getting older.  :D

Was taking way too long doing 2 at a time, so got the Massey 1100 hooked to the bale wagon to move 14 at a time, plus 2 on the MF362.  So far I've moved 30 rolls and taking a short break now.  It's the steep hills that make it slow as you MUST go slow & be very cautious.   I've had too many "butt pucker moments" on these hills when I was younger that helped me become wiser today.

All 53 rolls are in!  Not even a hint of even scooting tires on the hills either.  :thumbs:   Took a few pics of the hills, and a shot of the full wagon & my #1 farm hand behind me!  I couldn't do what I do without her!

 Yes, not even any mechanical problems!  Well, I did have to drain the fuel bowl on the old Hough loader to get the ditch filled in.  So much water in there it wouldn't hit a lick.  Drained it and she fired right up!  This danged alcohol fuel!

  Yes, Teresa is a gem!  23+ years of true marriage!

  Just haven't felt my best lately, partly allergies, then my neck & back have been bothering me due to the lifting at work....partly (mostly) just getting older.  :D

 

As for the allergies, my wife started making our sweet tea with a cup of our honey (from my bees) in it (per gallon). We did not suffer from allergies this year as we usually do. The allergies take my wife out of commission for about a week during the spring.

 

Try getting some local honey and eat a spoonful a day and see if that helps.
