  1. I suppose that is one advantage to living in a more populated area ,probably the only one, we have plenty of roads, lawns and parking lots for fire breaks.
  2. We used to have an order buyer for our hogs back when we had them. He was 6’6”or 6’7” and his nickname was Shorty. A sign hung on the wall that said SHORTY SAYS some men were never intended to handle livestock in the presence of women,young children or the clergy
  3. I went with the 110 volt direct wired replacements,eliminate the ballast and eliminate another problem.
  4. I want to share a little story with you all , take it for what it is worth. My wife and I attended a 50th wedding anniversary tonight, a noteworthy achievement but it happens fairly often. The difference with this story is that the groom had the COVID and spent 123 days in the hospital before being released. I asked him his opinion on the shot and he told me if there is any chance it might keep you from going through what I did ….. take it
  5. I have had DeWalt 18 volt stuff for years ,no it won't keep up with the newer stuff ,but they still work well.I bought a couple of their 60 volt flex tools and they are great, the battery powered pole saw is really nice,it's light and will run for hours on a single battery.
  6. I hear you,whenever we get a big snow [not very often anymore] our road becomes the peaceful little ,traffic free, country road it once was. About 20 years ago they closed it for 8 months to replace the bridge down the road,i loved every minute.
  7. If it's as wet up there as it is here, i'm sure he's fighting the weather trying to get his crops out.
  8. Neil McCoy played a couple of times at the Washington fair, i enjoyed his shows also.
  9. Seth you must have one heck of a leaf blower. Blew down the trees and all.
  10. As i headed to the shop this morning around 6 i noticed flashing lights down the road ,not uncommon because our road is a shortcut to I-44, as i got to the door i heard three gun shots. "That is not right" so i jumped in my truck and drove down there .40 in one hand ,thinking it was a policeman in trouble. As i got closer everything looked normal, officer had what i thought was a ticket book in his hand, so i asked him "everything ok i heard gun shots" everything's good he said this guy hit a deer and i put it down.. I thought damn your a poor shot.
  11. You find that 856 side panel in there also Ace😁 I would try a steam cleaner,but i am kind of impatient, especially this time of year.
  12. UPS ran those old 300's for years,until they added more pollution junk than the motor could pull.
  13. there is a lot going on with that set up.
  14. We had an inch and seven tenths of rain here the last couple days and it's cloudy and drizzling now. There will be some pretty deep tracks in the fields when we get going again. Seems like we get three days of harvesting then three days of wet,going to be a long harvest.
  15. Always heard, once you let the smoke out you can't put it back in.
  16. Poor guy must have terrible balance to trip and fall enough times to sustain those kinds of injuries, it is sure a good thing those Marines were there to help him up each time he fell.
  17. I can see where they have their place , I have been to south Texas hunting, they have quite a few critters that snack on calves in all that brush . Only thing we have are a few coyotes and occasionally a pack of stray dogs, I don’t need someone plowed over by a rouge cow. I have a friend who likes them long eared bovines working cattle with him is always interesting.
  18. Those long eared cattle have a certain, shall I say , protective instinct about them. Which I do not require or tolerate
  19. He sure doesn’t look 90 saw a piece on the news this morning
  20. I guess I’m guilty of the same thing the entrance to an old cemetery butts up to a small crop field and over the years I have encroached on it by a few feet. Not on purpose or with I’ll intent it’s just that as the equipment keeps getting bigger you tend to make wider sweeping turns.
  21. We have had some really good cows make it to that 13-15 year old range, maybe 10% at best they are good momas and usually have no problems, unlike heifers which are a pain in the butt sometimes.
  22. For some reason the bought heifers seem to meet untimely deaths on the farm. The home raised are just more healthy, for tax reasons .
  23. I did not know that, always learning something new here . If I can just remember it now .
  24. Probably Hiatt Auctions I live about 2 miles Northeast of there as the crow flies.
