Still very cool for this time of year here in KY. Seems to rain almost everyday too. If you can put any faith in weather forecasts, it seems we will be getting a few days of dry 80-degree weather toward the end of the week. Sure hope so. I need to cut hay in the worst way.
My son Garett has been having asthma attacks more frequently with the cooler more humid allergen filled air. Today he had a doctors appointment to refill his medicines and his mother could not take him, so I played hooky from work and we spent the whole day together. After his appointment we drove on up to Science Hill to the Mahindra Dealer I bought my 6000 from. I picked up the parts I needed to fix my disc mower. $72 just for the pin that broke, ouch. Garett looked over all the tractors there – and like me, he liked the 7010 Cab the best. He was especially impressed with the sunroof. I believe the two youngest kids will want to hold on to this land and way of life. When we finally made it home Garett watched curiously as we put the new U joint in the disc mower shaft. He just couldn’t hold out to bolt the pin up though. When I came back in the house from that, he was sound asleep on the couch.
On Sunday – Garett, Madison and I went on a horseshoe hunt. We walk through the fields after the horses have thrown some of their shoes and it’s a game to see who can find the most. All 4 of the horses have thrown at least 2, but we only found 1. The farrier will be coming sometime next week. He usually trades his work for hay. After the hay is done, we should have some free time to ride the horses. All the kids are looking forward to that.
