It took me a week to install two lag bolts.
Yesterday I called for the inspection. I had to get it permitted and inspected for my insurance. Otherwise...
I started a fire in the stove this morning as I figured this would be the last day for a while that I would be close by to watch it. I needed to cure the paint of the stove when i could have all the doors and windows open and keep an eye on the stove.
The inspector showed up as I was trying the vent and cool the house. Got it up to 85 degrees pretty fast.
He had a bemused expression.
I said, I suppose I'm not really supposed to make a fire until it is inspected.
He said, "yeah, not really..."
He was a nice guy. He said the installation looked good. (Thanks dh, and please get me a bill for the parts)
I stole a chunk of oak from my uncle's shop. Started it burning at 8:30 a.m. Fire was still going at 11 a.m. I was kind of impressed. It was just coals by 11:30 but that was not even a full firebox.
We chopped corn silage
We have an old IH truck kind of like Ralph Goff's truck. Ours in a tandem and a complete rustbucket.
I actually had to engage the front wheel assist on the 2-155 White, and use the differential lock. We got everything going around 3:30 pm. Lots of little problems. We chopped 150 ton by 8 pm. The field was getting pretty slippery by then. Only 1,500 more ton to go.
There was a rainbow. I could see the end of the rainbow and I am sure there is no gold there.
There was good corn and bad corn.
