I think my helper has Ebola

Got a call from my little helper this morning.
Temp of 103, body aches, weakness, sore throat, headache.
I'm almost sure it is Ebola.
Much too severe to be CCS (chronic couch sickness)
You may rest assure there has been absolutely no contact of bodily fluids but I'm still a little worried.
Perhaps I should go fishing for the rest of the day, prevention is essential medicine...
I've also heard that Peach Pie builds the immune system...

You are not an addict till you try to quit

We lost electricity this morning and had to fire up the generator.

For coffee...

What a way to make a living! Warning graphic photos which may upset farmers!

A years production of wheat straw vs one thunderstorm!
Plus some hail
Attempting to leave the field. Stackers don't have windshield wipers as the inventor was an optimist, I suppose.

Another 900 dollar tire?

A friend came and helped me stack. We picked up nine semi-truck loads.
At 10:30 p.m. the other front tire went flat.
The only tire I could find last Saturday was an odd-ball 14 ply four rib tire that doesn't really seem like something you should be driving down the highway.
But...I had to stack and I bought it.
I really don't want combine steering axle tires on the front to the stacker.
It is supposed to rain.
I have 80 acres of wheat straw to stack for a neighbor and $5,000 worth of little two-tie bales for myself.
I feeling a bit annoyed...

Can you make sense of these random photos?


(Bottom photo is just stock footage I am actually having a cup of coffee and thinking about church, really!)

Hint: The broken spring and the photo of a tire are not a cause and effect situation.
Bonus points: if you can guess the dollar amount involved in this one day's misadventures!
Double bonus points plus a pat on the head and a kind word: if you can politely explain in algebraic terms the relationship between strokes per bale, the day temperature, number of bales that are flat and not on edge, and the number of time the stacker operator has to stop and beg forgiveness from the Almighty for anger management issues.
