The worst part was having to wear long pants, and boots.  I'm used to living in shorts, and low shoes, all the time, this time of year.  Not a good idea for handling hay, or straw bales.

The other worst part was driving it home with weekend lake traffic.  I didn't want to drive over 35, which was not widely appreciated.  Fortunately, it was only about 7 miles.

I'm just going to throw a cover over it, for now, but wanted to get it while I could.  He had just started baling it this morning.

  I have some 12" pneumatic tired swivel casters coming to convert a 7' box blade into a spreader. That will require some fabrication.  I need to spread an inch of good dirt over that hard sandy dirt you see in that picture,  on the biggest part of the point as the next step, before I'm ready for the straw .

Only Pam.  I've been working by myself since the middle of February, and am liking it like this.

I cut grass all the rest of the day, until I cut the mower off tonight at 8:44, after Supper and taking a break to make those other posts.  I guess that'll take care of a good day's work on this Birthday.

I turn 62 next week and you're making me feel like a slacker!

I've stacked literally over 300,000 bales of hay in my youth. I'm what you call a professional. :)

Happy Birthday Tom

I feel like i get a decent amount done in a day but you make me look like a lazy slacker. Keep up the good work I'm interested to see pictures of the point when you are all done.
