But then you're from west of the Blue Ridge like me so you would know that. :D

Some days it seems you spend more time working on things than with them.200 rolls is right respectable.How long did it take to pry you out of the seat and fingers off the wheel?Is your neck stuck at 60 degrees to the right?


Just got out of the tractor from baling since 11AM today. My back hurts, neck hurts, left leg hurts from clutching, my head is still roaring from the noise. This use to be fun.....what happened?


Haying was much more fun when I was younger

Those soft ear plugs at the Dollar Store really help with the noise.You can still hear problems,though.Can't understand anything the wife says,though.

BTW: My old chainsaw finally gave up. The dealer said there was no compression because the engine wore out. Does that sound right? And what do you do with your old saws, when the rings wear out. Stihl MS250.


How old Ron? I doubt that you would have worn one out Ron, or you didn't get the oil right.

Gonna lay the field down below the road tomorrow, a little less than 30 acres. If no problems and Allen gets home from the class he is taking to help should get done maybe around 3-4 ish. If you need me were is the tractor and field. Your baler is like mine and tractor is a Kubota, but bigger. Shouldn't be a problem.
