Now there is a Grass-catcher only a dairy farmer could love:D
Hey, Olcowhand, I found this the other day and thought of you. Hope it helps brighten your day a little.

Mom is driving Dad crazy telling him what he should have done, what he did wrong, on & on. He said he hasn't had a moment's peace. Mom is 85 also, but her mind is slipping just a bit, while dad is sharp as ever still. Dad broke down shortly after leaving this morning (Mom didn't go). He started crying, saying he hated to be so much trouble. Got to me. I held it together though & got the subject changed. Once onto talking farming, politics, & the weather he was fine. To see my Dad cry is a hard thing for me. Dad doesn't show emotions like that, so I know he's really torn up. I know, I'm rambling on, but that's what I do.
Hoping for great results Wednesday!

My Dad has been in severe pain for several years, prostate issues (not cancer) that cause spastic contractions and cause VERY painful voiding. It was just last year he told us of his problem in detail. Our Fathers are all immortal in our eyes when we are young, then as we age, we realize they are human, just like us. This last medicine they are trying seems to be helping some. He had a very good day at Plow Day. Thank God he may get some relief... Hope your Dad finds some soon.

This morning all my feed augers were sludged up from the rain seeping in. Finally got the cows fed, but the augers will be crapped up again this afternoon. This rain is driving me insane! The cows aren't taking it too well either.
I have a lot to think about, as even if Dad comes out of this, his days of active work are likely coming to an end. Hiring help will cost more than we likely can afford, and thats IF we could even find someone worth hiring.
