Up in the morning and off to.....coffee and GTT.

 

You know, the usual routine. Heath has been a bit clingy today – I think his hand or his teeth are bothering him- so I spent a good bit of time with him playing on the bed.

 

Finally about noon I clamped my hat on my head and wandered out into the sunshine. First the chains came off the tires of the blue SS12 that is behind the building and went on the DragonFly. Then I started it up and headed down to the field to see id the plow with the blunt nose would work at all. It does a good job going about 2 inches down then it quits. With a bit of weight (me standing on the plow while Steph drove – Heath was taking a nap) on it I managed to get about 6 inches, which was enough for what I needed to do.

Kind of hard to see but this is the blunt plowshare

I have had some old barbell weights in the field for a long time so I strapped 90 pounds to the plow and headed next door to go to work. I was a bit at the mercy of the plow for direction, I really need weight on the front end.

 

 

Made 2 passes in the same furrow and then cleaned it out with a shovel so it is all ready for the guy to come rewire her well-pump now.

Last night after I typed my epic post a neighbor come over to see if I had a timing chain cover for his 302. I didn't. It turns out it is some kind of oddball one year only cover. He managed to snap his almost in half. I called my welder buddy and he came by and looked at it. Today he brought it back all welded together (hopefully it works) and I had him look at the plow. He agreed that there is no way to weld the plowshare tip back on without ruining the plow. He recommended reshaping what is there so I will give that a try later.

Willie, I had a plowshare that was broken off about 1" from the tip.  I welded it back on with 7018 rod & it's plowed at least 2 to 3 hours with no visible wear at all.  I welded a piece underneath the tip to strengthen it also.

  You really need that tip that angles slightly downward to help keep the plow in the ground.

Get us pic of the plow. We might be able to find a replacement share for it.

Well pics of the plow are one thing - what my wife took are another entirely. She is a good cook, but a lousy photographer.

They are older pics from when I got it, in that last one you can kinda see the blunted end. I will get a few much better pics tomorrow. I had the serial number written down somewhere but I cant find it now.

Sleepless night are the best.

 

 

 

Not really.

 

Last night we went to bed at our usual time. I listened to Steph snore. The ceiling fan offered me no respite from insomnia. Several times Steph got up with Heath, which is unusual he usually only wakes up once, I stayed in bed hoping that laying there would somehow induce sleep. IT didn’t.

 

Finally 5am rolled around and my eyes, mercifully, closed.

 

At 11am They opened again.

 

So on a whole 4 hours sleep I got up and made strong coffee. I had no real plans for today so it really didn't matter.

 

My neighbor came back to get the part he had welded up at around 2pm. Steph lift for class at 4pm. Heath woke up from his nap at 5pm.

 

When a child in diapers awakens you never know what to expect. When I lifted him from the crib I noticed his sleeper was wet. I removed the sleeper and wished it was only wet.

 

I was greeted by the lovely aroma of a fresh chunky green baby poop – up to his belly button and down to his knees. It must have had some pressure behind it to cause that blowout.

 

Mercifully, I took no pictures. You can send thanks to my paypal account.

 

So after some scraping and scrubbing and redressing, we played in his floor for a while. Then we moved into the kitchen for food. Then to the office to play some more.
