Today’s Project

Post by gcreekrch » Mon Jul 06, 2020 10:41 pm

Waited two years for the ok to do this job. Will help with managing our grass.

Local highway department was short of money so they let us find a cattle guard and put in ourselves with the help of a neighbour.

Help arrives.

Our Kiwi helper did dual purpose as a human flagger and quality control expert. He is leaving us in a couple days for another adventure. We are going to miss him.

Looks good. They can be mighty useful in keeping cows where you want them.
There is one on the county road just up from my house. It is so full of gravel the cows just walk across it. One of these days I need to mention it to the right person.

Yes, they do need cleaning more often than one can imagine. Grader operators love filling them up it seems.

🤔 now I have to wonder about why I though you were an old geezer like us...but not as old as Texasbred or Caustic... :D

Ahh...to be 40 again.

I am thinking that 40 is their anniversary not his birthday.

I am wondering how you can go out on the town? There isn't a town within a couple jillion miles.

We are in Town with a Capital T tonight. A good supper with old friends and an early night to bed. Really on the loose!
Pick up grandsons tomorrow and take them home with us for a time.
