I am forced to work and not allowed to be lazy

My chicken farmer friend (Who we shall refer to as Harlan Sanders or HS) has been helping me. He shows up at 7:30 a.m. and demands I go to work.
This is seriously cutting into my blogging and coffee drinking time.
And now I have to go to work or he will be peeking in the sliding door and tapping gently on the glass.
Yesterday the Uncle left for the morning and I was taking care of the shop and store.  Several people came at once. HS took the fellow's worker out to the shop and started making up the hydraulic hose order. Then the corn seed arrived by truck and HS got the forklift and unloaded the truck, then he discussed farming with the fellow who came to visit, while I lifted something for my wife. Then he went and did something else important because I heard the forklift zooming around and then came and helped me move my wife table saw to where she is working.
It was nice.
It is hard to a lazy farmer when you are feeling enthusiastic.

  1. Glad to hear it. I am just the opposite. Forced to be lazy . The grain company does not call for the wheat I contracted for delivery 4 months ago. The cleaning plant does not call for me to bring grain to clean. The guy that hauls my cattle does not come for them. I have about run out of ideas to try on that @#% Perkins tractor engine to start it. The weather refuses to warm up so I can even get a shovel in the ground. I could go on but maybe it is time for a new blog post.

  2. And it is really hard to be dissatisfied when you are getting things done with good companionship, human and canine.

    1. Especially when HS is doing all that hard work so enthusiastically and well! As an added plus, I hear he doesn't break things by sitting on them.

  3. If you search for lazy farmer porn this site is at the top of the search, with safe search turned on there wasn't even any actual porn to deal with!

    1. Well, HS and his not-wife decided they wanted to move to the country. They were working at yuppie organic grocery chain. The plan is provide eggs to the people who worry a lot about GMO and live in the city.
      One of my neighbors had his chickens stolen by an Alien space craft. He chased it off with a shotgun. It stopped all his clocks.
      I've told that story to HS and warned him about aliens. I hope he has a shotgun.

    2. Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?

      A: Because aliens don't wear purple hats.
