Unseasonably warm under my chapel skies Sunday morning. Asked for a little extra strength loading this gate and added a couple amenís afterward. Best part, my favorite captainís chair made the trip (such as it was) in good shape. That had worried me. I might have been a real let down had it not held up its immortal end in such proud tact.

In passing, the cows in the corn they were wearing smiles, the couple calves comfortably laid in the leaves our city cousins had brought out.
I had said the rebuilt Ollie was no parade queen. So! Hereís a picture to prove it. I tell ya, nobody follows this old girl.

Out in the sunshine world, moving the substances she too was blessed to move in her fashion, from where I was sitting behind these juicily dripping forks of a manure bucket. Yummy! All I thought about was lunch!
This loading the honey wagon kept us busy most the day and all that goes with it. Thereís the hauling in wood chips for drainage, grinding papers for dry bedding with this straw grinder:
Then, it was on to resetting the feeders and lastly feed a whole lot of hungry mouths for while it was getting late they had been unconvinced as well. Late enough, Iíll finish tidying up the barn and yard come Monday morning.

Monday morning indeed took up some time finishing the Sundayís cleaning the barn. Parking excess feeders to the side of the outer yard. Loading up full trash bags mysteriously appearing, long forgotten and/or buried by happenchance. The gate hauled the day before was made right today. Loaded out on a round-bale wagon as was an extension ladder for a hopeful fix tomorrow of the tenant house roof. The Ollie was back into the shop again with a ruptured hydraulic line. Hopefully brothe Roy did a beeter job brass sweating a coupled joint this time. Finding water in the Hydralic fluid we managed to make and break three tools trying to get the pumping out plug out of fluid caseís side. By afternoonís end Roy was hard welding a holed steel bar to the stubborn plug of removal. Tomorrow perhaps the cussedly stubborn threads will give.
Well that is about it. Another two day catch-up. G-nite.
