Where to begin, where to begin…so much to do, so much to do….
Fuzzy and I have been helping put the farm to bed, there is much to do. I just so enjoy all this ‘so much to do’ stuff.
Fuzzy and I go with Mom to do her jobs;
the biggest one was to gather all the siphon tubes from the four fields that use tubes for the irrigating of the seeds.
I tried to stay with Mom and Fuzzy but, hum mm, it was a tad hard when there is so MUCH TO DO out there!
Mom would get the tubes, load them up and then move on to the next level, this went on for some hours and well, and I got bored with the whole repetitious stuff so went hunting.
It was hot out there…68*, but after a rather chilly morning 68* is hot. And there is no water anymore, since the crops are all gone.
It went like this….get on the four-wheeler drive to the next level of the ditch, get off, pick up all the tubes
So I headed off in search of news.
Gradually Mom and Fuzzy got way ahead of me, I had to walk lots to catch up…and I admit it made me a little mad so I decided I would just walk on by them and GO HOME!!!
But Mom kept calling and calling for me to come back…
I had to lick and dance all around her so she would know that I had forgiven her for LEAVING me AGAIN when it was SO HOT OUT HERE!
Then I realized that she wasn’t heading into the house and I had gotten mad for NOTHING!
After we got done Mom took us all for a ride.
Later on Hank and his girl kids came over to ride in the combine. Hank said that he really enjoyed fall work.
We ran alongside the combine for a spell, and then we walked along the two fields of gated pipe checking to see if some critter had made a home in the pipe, Mom shut all the gates and closed the ends of the pipes. She said skunks, foxes, and other types of animals do not need to be living in the pipes over winter; they make huge nests that are very hard to get out come spring.
The fields that have dirt ditches have transmission pipe so Mom closed those ends off also.
Hank and I had a great time together.
After the last load was in the truck we all went home to rest. Tomorrow Dad starts up the combine again, I’m sure there will be cool things to do once more.
Right now, Fuzzy and I are a tad tired so I have to go.
