Struggles

Postby snoopdog » Sat Sep 01, 2018 8:20 pm

Got the hay down , been working on the "new to me" baler, all week . I think I got most of the bases covered ,but I am nervous . I will get the hay up , the other dependable baler is ready to go, I just would rather have it in a bigger bale. I had to use comet in the shower . If it works , I'm a partial dumazz, if not , a total , according to my sweet and lovely .

I use Dawn and a scrub pad. Good luck with the baler.

Smarter than one fellow I know. He got grease in his hair and decided he’d cut it with gas. In the shower. Wanna guess how that played out? He lived through it with no lasting effects.

Good luck on the hay. When all else fails, you just have to “worry” it into a ball. Persistence will take you a long way.

getting burned happens occasionally ...but it's only a small wound,not a white elephant ...
