Just a Part of Farm Life. Part 2

Well, after many hard hours of labor, we now have the power steering working! In the process of fixing the power steering, we accidentally jammed a hole in the radiator, causing us more labor. Anyway, we finally got it fixed after having to take the radiator out three times!!:o. It was tough, but we improvised, adapted and overcame! So, Monday Liv and Jordan hooked up the plow and went to town plowing around the house and grove. Then after completing their mission of plowing the surrounding area, they loaded the tractor up and when I came home from my hard day of spraying, we all jumped in the truck and headed into the sunset (or almost). We arrived safely at our destination,(Kathleen pasture), with the tractor still on the trailer. We unloaded and I made one round around the field, then went home for dinner. Thus completing my part of the mission.

So, to continue with the next phase, I'll turn it over to Livy.

The next day.

Well after waking up and and doing all of those "waking up dutys", (like eating breakfast, brushing teeth....) Me and Daddy headed for Kathleen. After arriving, we hooked up the plow and started to work plowing the field. Daddy was the first to start and he plowed a few rows, which seemed to take Much longer that it really did, and then it was my turn. ( If any one of you people out there reading this haven't guessed yet, I happen to REALLY like tractoring). Well, there really isn't much you can say about plowing that wouldn't bore you, so I shall move on. About 1 O'clock it started pouring rain, thus ending my plowing for the day (boo hoo). But do not dispair for Daddy took me to Garl's -BQ (my Favorite place to eat in the world) for some sweet tea, and good food:) There ending a day, or should I say, half a day of greatness (I'm not saying the second half wasn't good, just that the first half was better than the second:).

In Christ,

All loaded up and ready to go.

Something's funny:)

Police surrounded the building and nabbed the crook red handed trying to cut the hair of a poor innocent and helpless citizen of Lakeland, Fl. She's now locked behind bars and all the townsfolks "heads" are safe!!

And Lakeland is now a safer place to live in.
