What We have Been Doing—-Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Terry is feeling much better.  Still not able to walk on slanted ditch banks, or to carry heavy loads, but improving daily.

With the healing of the foot, he is now restless…a good sign, as they say.

So Terry decided it was time to clean off the top of the settling pond and haul the dirt into low spots on the farm.

This isn’t our settling pond, but our neighbor always lets us clean the top off, then he comes in and digs out all the dirt so the water can ‘settle’ before it goes onto the fields.

Since the air was hot and dry, no sign of wind or rain anywhere.  Off we went a mile away…to haul loads and loads of dirt onto the hollow spots on our farm.

We worked all afternoon until around five.  Only stopping a short spell to change the water in the little corn field.

Finally, it was time to head home.  Terry with the load. Me on the tractor.  We will begin again in the morning.  After I get the water changed and some of my housework done.

I’m so glad he is feeling better. Soon, maybe by next week, he will be back to normal.  That’s my wish anyway!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda
