Sure am tired of weed whacking!
Tuesday, June 24, 2014      0 comments

Yesterday I spent as long as I could stand it on my tractor filling the ditch the rain made this spring in a pasture. The Maine DOT sent people to look at it and then brought me 4 dump truck loads of dirt to fill it in, lots of sod mixed in and... Read more

I didn't do much today, the muscle I pulled in the back of my thigh was acting up, pulling it a second time was defiantly a bad thing. I called off work tonight and took some flexeril to relax the muscles in my leg, early night tonight to see i... Read more

Got up yesterday, ate a good breakfast, went to do barn chores and discovered the shed had been trashed by a racoon, no food around so things were pulled down messed up and all over the place. After spending an hour cleaning up that I did all t... Read more

Moderation
Saturday, May 31, 2014      0 comments
