I think the record for yesterday was 110 in 1956. Day before was 105 in 1997. I think. May be off on my days.
Have a new helper. I hate breaking in new people. Explaining how to rake and bale. Don't make piles with the v-rake. You know YOU are going to be the one to bale it. Watch the moisture tester and stroke counter in the baler. If the moisture goes over 16 percent let me know! That is why we have the moisture tester in the tractor.
Don't slip the clutch. Don't drive into piles of straw at full speed. Do you have enough water?
I like hiring high school and college girls. They are always happy. And I can't get mad at them unless they do something really stupid twice in a row.
I started on my $30 a ton straw yesterday. Baled half a truck load. The stuff is crap. I don't know what I'm going to do. I desperately need the money but I'm thinking of pulling out. I've got to find the fellow buying the straw and see if he will take it.
I have a fellow who owes me $$$ for hay. He is trying to cut me down on the price. But, I lost his phone number and now he is annoying my land lord.
A/C blew up in the cab in the stacker. Found a loose hose fitting and fixed it. I was drenched with sweat by the time I was done. Tried to boost the air in the 2-135. Got it colder by adjusting the A/C pressures up a little. Then the fitting on the gauge set blew out with a whoosh. Lost my added r-134 on that one.
Then the combine. It is freon and it is not working. Burnt my hand working on that one in the 130 degree engine compartment.
I want to go away...
