Bill you just have to get your priorities straight, Red Power or the farm :lol: The corn is all in around here and some has been replanted,a few are working on beans and everyone is baling hay. Me,I am just trying to keep the grass cut and the rolling stock running.


we have had "summer" weather the last 3 days. IF it continues, we should be mostly caught up on planting and chopping by the end of this week. too late for RPRU, though. a lot of us in the northeast are playing catchup this year.
chores here are pretty well under control from my employees, but the field crew and decent working weather have been in short supply.

My condolences Kirk.

As usual - at the last minute, something came up (several things)....Won't be going AGAIN this year... :cry: Guess I'm not destined to go! Never been, and won't be able to - unless it comes back to Missouri, or Iowa.....

My grandmother passed on Friday, 9 hours short of her 82nd birthday. I had patched the dodge up well enough to make th trip, but seeing her again just didn't work out. So I did make the show Saturday for a few hours on the way through. First one since 09 when we did the f20. Also added a tractor to the collection for the first time in 10 years.

Now that I can afford to, I have to start getting out and doing my thing again. Riding around, tractor shows, etc. Working where I did for 5 years, I couldn't afford much besides sitting at home a lot of the time, and it's catching up with me.
