Looks like you got quite a bit done! Glad you are feeling better, cutting all the metal and taking it out took it's toll on you.

The milk parlour looks organized - the only thing you won't be able to find now is your sanity!  :D

 

Glad to hear you are feeling better - sometimes you have to go a little slower to get the same amount accomplished but the journey is much smoother on the joints.

Today I had an appointment with pain management, then to my family Dr to get a PT blood test (Pro-Time blood thinning check).  Then we went to Lowes and got some degreaser to clean the walls and ceilings of the parlor, and some PVC fittings for the sink plumbing.  On to Southern States to see why I was charged a late fee when I've never been late on ANY payment.  Stopped at the E-town store, as that's the home base for the propane, and this was propane related billing.  Bill said he'd take care of it.  I also asked if I might still get a propane discount to help out a bit at least till my disability gets approved.  He said he sure would, and also said he hated to see me retire, as he liked my work ethic and my repairs on their fertilizer buggies.  Whenever I would be at their store picking up stuff for our store, if I had to wait and they were busy there, I would tend their customers.  While there 2 other of their store employees came in and were glad to see me.  They even shook my hand and didn't even call me any names of cuss me!   :rolling: I do miss working with all the guys.  

  Afterwards, we went to 2 different salvage groceries and got quite a few bargains.  Once we got home I gathered all I'll need to start cleaning in the parlor tomorrow.  Tonight is the last night below freezing for quite a few days, so wanna get as much cleaning done as I feel up to doing.  Most will simply be spraying the cleaner on with a gallon sprayer, then use an electric pressure washer to blast it off.  Where the vacuum pump sat was a bit stained from oil & grease, so I sprayed that 4'x4' spot with degreaser and scrubbed it with a stiff brush.  It worked well and the suds turned black quick.  I sprayed more on then quit for the day.  That will be the toughest spot to get clean so it will accept paint.  

  Yesterday I did much of nothing except for drive around on the Kubota RTV to look at the timber on my property.  The lumber guy from Lexington, Ky is coming Friday morning, and I wanted to look at it all again before he came.  I don't think I have all that much, but it may add up to more than I think.   If there's not enough timber to interest him, OR if my neighbor James B. will match his offer, then I'll have James cut & sell the timber if he has time.  I also took my 17 cal WSM rifle with me in case I saw a coyote, which I didn't.  

  Right now I'm nursing a cup of coffee while Teresa has a pot of chili cooking!   :D

There is a good reason we won't have chili on Friday as well as Saturday.  Being we will all be in close proximity to each other while plowing and BS'ing, we don't need to be around one another 24hrs after the chili really kicks in!  :rolling:

Today I got the future canning room in the milk parlor all scrubbed as clean as I can get it.  Sure has left me hurting, and I didn't even scrub much at all.  The overhead stuff gets to me instantly.

As soon as it's warm enough, I will paint the floor with grey epoxy garage floor paint, but might be a while before it's warm enough.

OK lets think about that. If you took your recliner out there and reclined while washing the ceiling you wouldn't have to have your neck all twisted up. Just sit down, recline, throw one of those blue tarps over you, and go to it. You might even get to liking it.  :D

Overhead work is a killer for me too! It'll take a few days for that to calm down.

Overhead work and tractor work having to twist looking behind makes my neck bother me as well.
