Unfortunately she didn't understand go around the ground hog hole yesterday, but at least it was a small wagon and didn't break the spindle. We put up some really nice 3rd cutting yesterday, that's our vacation fund from the crazy horse people around here.

so is she taking a picture of her handy work?

I'm sure she was. But then I can't talk because I was taking a picture of her taking a picture.

Well I had my fingers crossed till this happened. And yes, you are right. Slowing down was the ticket. 3.5 mph was the sweet spot. Next I'll be testing the limits on my belts and bearings on the baler. If all goes well and I get finished with this field I'll start on another just like this one. Then another. Living the dream is all I can say and I will say if it wasn't for the money, the fame and the glory this might be like a nightmare of a job.


Better hurry. You may get wet next week....
Yesterdays tropical report discussion said there was a tropical wave over Puerto Rico moving WNW that was expected to cross the Fla peninsula over the weekend or very early next week and contribute some significant rainfall to mid Gulf coastal states and perhaps beyond. Some strengthening was anticipated once it got into the Gulf. Lots of shear going on tho.

no it's really not a good picture (I thought I had a better one but couldn't find it) but it is the front pivot point on a front end loader (near the bottom of the bucket) I'll try and get a better picture of it (it's fixed now so it won't look the same but you'll be able to see where it was)

Corn and beans are still pretty green here but we are going to be shelling some high moisture corn to put in the silo this week. Just got back from a nice boating trip though, anyone ever been here?
