    Back from eye dr checkup for hubby; still good so far. Found a tree on side of driveway that'd split from the winds. Hoping it won't fall before hubby is cleared to work outside in a few days so we can tag team it.

    Big Jim, just set an empty cup outside as the rain gauge to quiet the noise makers here.

    I'm ba-ack!

    Things didn't go quite as I'd planned, but got things done at the farm. Started spraying first thing yesterday morning when a weld broke (yes, mine) on my spray tank rack: Click image for larger version.

    Had to leave the sprayer where it was while I mowed everything with the 755. It was time to start my fire for the pork steaks & fried tators 'n' onions for dinner. While the fire was burning down to coals, I did some router work on the cabin porch rounding the corners of the 4 x 4" posts. Cooked & ate dinner, then loaded up the 755 & headed home. Unloaded the tractor & generator & related equipment, loaded up the Gator & headed back out. The Gator works better for spraying anyway, but didn't have trailer space the first load: Click image for larger version.

ID:	690668 Got most of the spraying done yesterday, finished it up this morning. Planted several hills of pumpkin seeds saved last fall. Picked four-20 ounce (m/l) containers of pie cherries, enough to make us a couple cobblers.

    Had time to do a little fishing, Dottie had to stay in the cabin while I sprayed, but gets to go fishing with me, she likes to run alongside the Gator: Click image for larger version.

    Caught a couple small Bass, the this guy on a Bluegill that I'd caught on a Crappie jig w/6 lb line, 19-1/2": Click image for larger version.

ID:	690664 He went back in the water as soon as the picture was taken, having them grab Bluegill in front of the dock is common in that pond, there was another big Bass alongside this one at the time!

    Back home a little afternoon, pretty tired since I don't sleep well in the recliner at the cabin, but worth it. And, I did get several things done that I was behind on from all this year's rain, which is due to start again tonight!

    Sounds like an awesome couple days Lowell albeit with a minor breakdown. But you got it all done. Most important part is spending time fishing and cooking out with the pups.

    I understand that rain gauges look a lot like aerators only smaller. Neither seem to be worthy of a picture while working.

    Good evening, Finished mowing, trimming in Morgantown today ,total time 7 hrs.

    Came home rested while wife got dinner, then outside with grandsons. While I was in Morgantown the grandsons got there bicycles out cleaned them and I find out Grandma told them we would go for a bike ride tomorrow......
    So after our haircuts heading for Ohiopyle bike trail, could either ride to Pittsburgh in one direction or DC the other direction.. No we aren't riding that far tomorrow by a LONG SHOT. Guessing maybe a 5-10 miles.. will depend on ME, and the grandsons.

    Later
    Good day

    Have fun and be safe !!!

    Good evening everyone.

    Good day today.

    This mornings plans got changed a bit. While brushing Tana this weekend we found she had a rash under her collar. This morning it didn't look too well so instead of breakfast we went to see the Vet.

    They shaved it and I got some antibiotic / steroid spray. Already seems to be working.

    Did a Kudzu patrol and gave the new comers a "treatment".

    Finished the day off with cutting the grass and then sat a spell on the dock and fed the fish & turtles.

    Beautiful day, barely made it into the 70's. I could do this all summer long.

    I'm guessing he lost his glasses while trying to find the power cord to recharge his phone when some gypsy painters showed up in a Lowes truck with a frigerator.....

    no the gypsies had their own painting truck---no mistake of that--as it was covered in old paint
    getting the fridge this Friday now. they already know the old one is going in the basement--well at least the sales lady agreed to it. so time will tell-huh.

    thanks OC. at least u believe me
    .................................................. .
    good morning-woke up early--this going to bed-with glasses on to watch tv is getting old--first thing i think of is them darn things when i wake up now-and realize their not where they was when i fell asleep.

    ahh-back to dreaming the last several nights-maybe a week nowwhat scares me is the people in the dream are talking to me now that would be ok-but these people are ones who have passed away. boy it seems so real like.

    worked on the plastic pipe on the pto shaft yesterday--spent an hr just looking for the paperwork that came with the pto shafts back when the RFM and brush hog was bought new back in 07. no where to be found---watched some video's on u-tube-could not find one video that showed my plastic coverings.
    gonna do some ordering of new ones today.

    got the 50 out -but first the battery was dead-so pulled it when bren got home from work--5 ft and it fired right off-in the old days would pull it myself--with a long chain--jump off the 2520 and run back to 50 and yank the hand clutch back. yeah-it was dangerous back then--finally put a heavy duty larger battery in--8 yrs ago-this is the first time the battery was down-course i have always started it thru the winter months-this last winter i didn't start it any.

    found out after a couple passes in my cousin's meadow-the plastic covering is also shot on the pto too. forgot about it finally giving up last fall. so now i'm up to replacing 3 of them.

    later
