@  Dill : (24 April 2015 - 06:37 PM) I know how you feel Stack. I had an issue back in March that had me a inch from early "retirement". I talked to the wife and came up with a plan. Once the boy is in school, I'm going to look at just farming. Take some time off, but remember you'll need some when the little one comes.
@  deadmoose : (24 April 2015 - 06:13 PM) Good luck. Gotta do what's right for you and yours. Whatever that may be.
@  stack em up : (24 April 2015 - 05:52 PM) After yesterday, hopefully forever. Slept like a baby last night, and I can feel my blood pressure has dropped significantly. Boss drove to our farm to have me come back. Using my vacation days, then I'll see. I have 18 days to use...

@  stack em up : (24 April 2015 - 05:41 PM) wanted to plant some corn but gotta go fix a starter fertilizer pump for a neighbor tonight.
@  stack em up : (24 April 2015 - 05:36 PM) It's amazing how much farming I can get done when I don't have a full time job to go to! Castrated lambs, ground feed, we
@  Dill : (24 April 2015 - 05:24 PM) Got a cow with bad mastitis, just when I think she's turning the corner the calf looks like crap.
@  deadmoose : (24 April 2015 - 04:41 PM) Rotate left 90 deg from vertical. Pic should be upright.

@  stack em up : (24 April 2015 - 01:26 PM) I hold it so the "home" button is on the bottom. Camera on top.
@  hillside hay : (24 April 2015 - 01:15 PM) wondering that myself. How are you holding it when you take the picture?
@  stack em up : (24 April 2015 - 01:08 PM) Why is it when I post pics off of my iPad, they always turn sideways?
@  Grateful11 : (24 April 2015 - 07:15 AM) 39˚ in central NC this morning.
@  Shetland She... : (24 April 2015 - 06:59 AM) 37º and mostly cloudy here in srn NH. Should be partly sunny with a high near 50 today.
@  mlappin : (24 April 2015 - 06:57 AM) Third morning in a row with ice in the wife's birdbath.
@  Vol : (24 April 2015 - 06:32 AM) A low of 34° this morning.....but no frost.....just dew.
@  IH 1586 : (24 April 2015 - 04:27 AM) 26 this morning. Maybe we will be in the 40's with some sun today.
@  jturbo10 : (23 April 2015 - 09:23 PM) stack em up: I can understand your frustration as I had dealt with customers in a similar situation. Hang in there and don't let them beat you down. Be professional and above the name calling and do your best to resolve the issue. Dealing with salesmen who only want to move equipment and use false promises is a mess unless you can get the owner involved to establish the rules of engagement. Good luck and don't let them rain on your parade, you will feel better when you have time to regroup.
@  stack em up : (23 April 2015 - 08:54 PM) Wanna buy some goats? Niece is raising them for 4H. (Meaning I am raising them for 4H)....
