More Four Day Weekend

The rains ended yesterday’s upcoming sun’ I felt a whole lot better’an Friday Night’s aches, pains, cramps and spasms. There’d had to been a time one body could have felt so bad all over all at once. Yesterday’s sun coming up was one bright healer making me all right. Shorthorn country responsibilities keep going right on everyday, no day excluded regardless my lazy behavior. The animals insist on being waited upon.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How about some varied pictures involving varied activities:
A couple for fences fix. making repair a number of electric fence gate handles. This picture’s one method I fix’em for some continued useful life around here. The spring load insides gone these handles I wind a piece #9 wire for use inside these handles. They come out a solid handle without give which is alright in two ways Some of my gate wires swing three ways. Both gate ends needn’t be spring loaded for a tight fitting when one will do. Secondly if it is an extra wide gate opening the weight of the wire spanding the opening will be heavy enough .

This second picture I’ve used an electric fence post stuck in a HM vice stand’s extra mounting holes. The #9wire coil wound keeps the wire from slipping for and after making it a very workable useful tool.

I’m laying on café to keep it comfortably still. The calf bloating we run a tube down it’s throat to ease of the stomach’s gas.

This fluid spilled out on the ground came up out the tubed calf‘s stomach.

It still remains to be seen if the bull calf will make it. Something’s wrong, the calf’s intake’s greater than the wrong colored output. Calf may have a twisted bowel or intestine. It remains to be seen if the big guy will make it?

You think you know what thems are? You’re wrong. Them’s trash!
Photobucket
Yup! They wont pickup tires; but, cut up they take trash away.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Getting ready all ready for next winter’s snow while we’s got the time.
Photobucket
The bottom of the impeller closure’s rusted out. The machine’s throwing the snow out the bottom instead of out the top.
Photobucket
Other than it needs a new steering cable for the chute, and the PTO shaft loosened up so it’ll slide, and just possibly a new drive chain; The machine is as factory fresh as new…….
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
To top off the day finally got around tuit, making fix the gate I didn’t drive through first (fingers crossed behind my back) . The evidence was merely all circumstantial. Ahem, It was the power company what finished off. (nodding my head up‘n‘down in circular motion). I do nothing wrong…………
Photobucket
The two pressed bars laying on the gate are leftovers. The metal sized just right for four pieces, that’s what was made. So we’ve two spares.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Getting back home just in time to down my rattlers. Got to get the trash household out to keep some black rubber trash company for the trash fellows stop, and myself oh so worn down I don’t think I want to wash both my hands. I’ll just simply wish’em clean for now, and wash’em twice next time. BGKC.

Hope the calf makes it.

Cliff has been getting some work done on the Ollie; he fixed the holes in the gas tank and the fenders are painted. He's soon going to do something that you said is difficult, something about moving the front wheels out further.
