Got Josh married off Saturday, and now he's off till Thursday, honeymooning in Gatlinburg. This morning has been CRAZY! Dad went to cut hay with the 1411 discbine...got almost done with one small field & the constant velocity set at the tractor pto tore up. Dad went to get the part thinking it would be in stock. Wouldn't have mattered, as after milking I took a look at it & the front yoke where the constant velocity "finger" fits into a bushing wobble joint is all worn away...shot! I know the parts are over the moon at New Holland, but got online & found a complete replacement, ready to go for less than parts for ours. Last time it went out, parts were $1,400, and this entire assembly is less than $800 delivered! Well, I will have to cut the new shaft to length, but that's 10 minutes tops. Gotta go scrape manure off the lots, then start evening chores. Vet check in the morning. Oh, forgot...new calf with momma this morning is now in the barn too. Been stuck on the phone half the morning between parts, Dad calling, and Kaylin & Teresa calling. Kaylin was going for her driver's test & her LF turn signal was not working! Luckily some classmate boys were there & found there must be a bad wire connection at the bulb socket. They wadded up paper behind the wires & they stayed working! Thanks boys!!
She went on to take the test & she now is a full fledged driver! Well, intermediate license, but she now can drive alone. Scares me, but I've been down this road 4 times. You'd think I'd get used to it....but no...not ever! She gets to drive herself to her new job this afternoon, and she'll get to sing as loud as she wants on the way. She's been wanting to do that for a long time!
Now off to push some poo!
