Very nice day today, bright sunshine, warm with a slight breeze.
I got the big wheel loader fired up, went and got three big loads of pasture dirt/aged manure. Tomorrow i'll level the garden and rototill the whole thing again.
When I was coming home with the last load of dirt, another neighbor hailed me from his driveway, said they were having a BBQ and fish fry, to grab the dog and come over.. So that's what i did!! The food wad great, the dog behaved, and everyone had a good time.

The dog behaved? He gettin' old already? ;) Perhaps there was enough food scraps to keep him happy.

Beautiful day! Perfect sunshine yet cool & dry. So nice to work outside.

Lisa.... looking good!


Fred.... those rows are too dang straight. You got some sort of GPS auto locator string line? Or you've walked so many straight lines it's just habit? Heeheeee! Nice looking work.

Both those Deere's are really nice--not up to my 8N, but they'll do in a pinch :clap: toothy --just gotta keep that floater wheel in the last furrow & by God you're set as far as straight goes--sure wish I had a floater wheel when that Trooper stopped me back in the 60's :shots: :cheers:

I'm On Fire wrote:Had a good day. Loaded the Craftsman lawn tractor on the bed of my truck and went and hung out with Crazy4coal and his dad. It's always fun chatting with them.

We pulled the tractor from the truck and pulled the deck to use on his tractor. Then I headed to the scrap yard but they were closed when I got there. 11:30 is what the sign said. Oh well, next weekend is another weekend to take the tractor to the scrap yard. After that I took my wife and daughter out for lunch. Pics!


Hey I know those guys!!!

My sentiments exactly Keepaeyeonit. Just plain work kept me away, and I have plenty. Things are really taking off here the more I get out on the jobs. Just had a former employee move here day before yesterday and we are forming a partnership. Already had a client compliment his ability, his finish work is fantastic, and we might as well be family( He is my sons age). We just about drowned and it is still raining here, flooding happens easily compared to Maine, But it is a warm rain at least, to me! :D Back at it tomorrow, Make money while the sun shines.

Chris, It's the same butyl mesh cargo tarp I've had since 2011. I finally took the time to dig a piece of 5/8 EMT out of my stash and drilled a hole in each end for bungies. The tarp has a reinforced pocket in the front. Slip the EMT thru and hold it down with 2 bungies. That's the ticket ;)

That's one smart cat :lol: I'd hide the whiskey!

Edit: up to 15 yards. . .

You know the slogan..."Nothing runs like a Deere". The only reason more people don't run green equipment is the price tag.

You sure got that right Fred. I bought my green machine back in '05 .... and at that time, it cost MORE than the truck I used to haul it home from the dealer!!



Things have slowed down a little bit here after the spring rush. Boats, weedwackers, lawn mowers, lawn tractors, & real tractors are all ready for another season. Actually found time to do my OWN lawn tractor! And I mowed! :lol:

Still damn cold though. :mad: I think we got ahead of ourselves planting. The seedlings are busting out and attaching to each other with their roots - they need to be planted NOW ... but last night we had a 36° night! Damn weather ....

Check this out - so I was a little bored yesterday, so I wandered around the property for about 20 seconds looking for something to do. So I grabbed my air hose and started tearing down the original Blazer engine that's been idle for the past 2 years - you guys remember the one - burned a quart of 20W-50 in WINTER every 50 miles .. :lol: So as I lift the intake manifold off, this is what I found.

(singing) "ONE OF THESE THINGS JUST DOESN'T BELONG HERE, C'MON CAN YOU TELL ME WHICH ONE ...." :rofl:

The wifey put over 7,000 miles on that engine puking oil the entire time ... with a 13th pushrod in the lifter galley!! Resting on the CAM no less!!! Now THAT'S entertainment!

Tells you a thing or 2 about a couple things: Suburban NYC mechanics .... and eBay purchases .....
