Been one of them weeks, days, maybe several weeks…

Today i hooked up to the trailer and went after bulls. Got them, headed back and got about 10 miles from there and blew a good tire on the trailer… don’t know why, doesn’t matter. I went to fix it and some fool had taken the tire wrench that fits the trailer out of the pickup! After much frustration and calls finally the man’s son who we lease the bulls from came and brought an extra spare tire, and a battery operated lug wrench.. I got to get me one of those! And a new spare tire and a new tire to go back on the trailer.. my spare isn’t too shiny… I was supposed to go to a funeral this afternoon and should have had plenty of time, but didn’t get home in time for it..

Yesterday Cindy and I went to town, thinking about trading of the 95 Dually with the good old Cummins 12 valve… dealt with auto dealers for way too long and my head still hurts.. didn’t get any trade made but did learn a few things.. still making calls and what not on this deal..Chance would like to keep the Dually and get rid of his pickup, so we’d need to trade off his, figure out the differences in prices and still; get all the i’s dotted and the t’s crossed…

Been working on the house. Lige helped me get more fence posts installed for railings, got some more to do. Rick came over and spent a day helping us.. that was sure a big help.

Been a terrible hail storm go thru’ since last I posted, but it went south of us, we just got a good rain.

Slome months back the local telephone company came in and put wires into the new house. Never hooked a phone up to it, so I just forgot and when I trenched for there new new well, I cut the line.. told the guy what happened and they have changed the rules to where they don’t just repair it, or bring in a semi permanent line, they have to trench one in with a special trencher.. last I heard they would still be over a month out.. sure is a pain to come to the old house to check messages and the internet morning and night… I sure hope we get this house all done and fixed up some day… on a brighter note, when we got home last night, Tate had installed the tub surround around the big whirlpool tub in the master bath.. aromatic cedar and man is it putty! Now, if he’d just get that tub hooked up I’d grab a bottle of bourbon ands go sock in it for a good long spell!
