On Saturday I used the Massey 12 Hydro to cut my lawn and trim the roadside area.


On Sunday, my daughter asked me to give her and some friends a tractor ride, so I hooked up the little red wagon and pulled everyone around the yard and up and down the street.  Everyone had a great time, and I got several "Thank You" hugs from the little boys she was playing with.

Started mowing with the F935, then blew a sidewall on a tire.  Tonight I mowed around the house & some of the barnyard/roadside with the JD 430.

Well, while working on an eng today, lost all elec power, shop and house.  Checked neighbors place, they lost it also.  Seems there was a break in the underground cable that runs to our place.  That was a nightmare for the guys to come fix, took them 7 hours, was broke in the middle of some swamp ground... they were happy... NOT, but they got 'er done!


Anyway, since I could not do any shop work, I fired up the GT6000, put the deck on 'er and started mowing.  Glad I did, I had not been able to mow for a good week and a half due to all the rain, was starting to look like a hay field... LOL.  Got bout half done and ran out of gas.  Filled up, started again.  Got done around the house, both sides of the drive and headed for the side yard, bout 2 acres hoping to get that done before the darn skeeters started sucking blood.  I had forgotten all about the power problem, but when I rounded the trees, what do I see, a poop load of trucks and equipment.  Seems they parked in my side yard to keep the road clear.  O-well, I had forgot I told them to do it.   So I only got a couple hours seat time today, but I sure enjoyed it.

Not really a GT but my new toy to play with. It is a 1940 Caterpillar D4 that was my wife's grandfathers. I smoothed out his driveway yesterday and smoothed out my in-laws in the picture today. So much fun to play with.

I needed to get electricity to a new location for a stock tank heater. Last winter, I put our new cattle in a pasture close to the house, which was easy to keep their trough full and thawed. It was also uphill and upwind of the house. No more for me. I can handle the horse smell, but not the cattle, at least not all the time. I also don't like the "nutrients" running straight to my well.

I had about 100' of 10/2uf to bury. I used my Ford 80 and a moldboard plow to start. Then I switched to a ripper, then the cultivator with a furrower. Then a shovel! I got it done. The moldboard cuts the sod so neatly, I just flipped it back in the trench.

Neighbor cleared some around the property line with a skid steer so he can sell his house. I started cleaning up the rock and some stumps on my side with Hulk and BMP.

I mowed my neighbors yard and mine.  Its always fun to mix it up a bit. I used the Ford 861 Power Master with  72 inch Massey Ferguson finishing mower. Tried the 318 for a while. Used the X540 with bagger. Simplicity 12.5 LT and my Ferrari a couple of rounds.

Got Itty Bitty running for the first time in about four years. she has been sitting in the barn since her transmission locked up. We tried to get her started last night but she wouldn't turn over. Went to the parts store and got her a new spark plug and after a few tries of the key she started purring. We still have a few more things to do before she can get out of the barn but she is getting close to being able to get back to work.

Used the c160 to pull the trailer around to haul some branches. Then I used one of the 18/6's with the dozer blade to fill in the holes where I pulled out the peach trees that didnt make it last year. Used Mom's gt7400 to show how tight a radius it has (hey, it counts... Seat time is seat time)

Spread a summers worth of horse manure compost in the horse area.
