I was trying to figure what i had done wrong and gotten caught!
I've missed two family get-to-gathers. My BIL (the hard working one) came by to see what the problem was. He's thinging about purchasing a skid-steer loader for his business. after talking with him, he thinks he will also be sucked into this problem. misery loves company.
I think my wife broached the subject of cost sharing 1/5 of cost with us four BIL's to my FIL. I take it that the subject will be dropped (at least verbally).
Right now i'm just keeping a low profile, and waiting to see what develops.
Tomarrow my FIL and my family go to a tractor pull together. i'll be sencing how thick air is tomarrow.
Now don't get me wrong. There's a lot i don't like about my FIL, but since it doesn't usually concern me, its notproblem. in ways he's like the crazy uncle people like to be around for short periods of time. he's odd enough to be funny. If i had the equipment to do the job, i would gladly do it. (i've helped him on just about every other project he has had). People who have never moved soil just don't understand the magnitute of it. a hugh dump truck of soil, when dumped on the ground looks remarkably small. the opposite is true also. many times it looks like removing a small amount of soil would develope a large hole. it takes a lot of work. Although selling the backhoe would remove the problem, its not an option. i have too much work for it around the farm.
i'll tell you this, it was a comfort to be able to post my problem, and greater confort to hear from everyone. Thanks.
So thanks for asking EIEIO,further news reports as they develop. (i hope he doesn't say something tomarrow that makes him have to walk from Concord Tractor pull to home) just kidding, i would probably be the one walking!
