Just another day at the farm

My disk mower self destructed again... Only have 80-90 acres of hay to do. Found a neighbor to help me-I think.
The hay we picked up in the rain is going to mold in the stacks as it is wet on the edges.
Came in the house to discover there are plans for the last weekend of July and first weekend of August. This is why I never plan things in advance. Antique Powerland has been at the same time in July and August for 30 years. I guess I didn't actually get it on the calender. It is basically the only thing I plan on attending in advance. I like to take my daughter. Last year it was too hot. Perhaps I'll see if the nephews are going.
It is much easier if you just work all the time.
I think I will go to bed...


  1. Darn! I was hoping the helper just decided that it was too nice a day to finish & took a nap.
    We are going, need a ride?

  2. If a Massey tractor and New Holland mower shows up you could offer the fellow a cold drink. I didn't tell him how rough the big field is. I may take you up on the offer. However, I want to take the daughter. I think we have a good time. The one thing we do together... We eat lots of ice cream, listen to the fiddlers, ride the train, eat more ice cream. Look for Motor's Manuals from the pervious century. Laugh at the steam punks and so on...

  3. I haven't been to Powerland for a couple years. Last year I was so burnt out on worn out old junk that I had no desire to go. This year I'm feeling a little better about it. We will probably still be threshing ryegrass then, as late as this year is.
