Shay makes fun of me because I'm always looking forward to the next thing. Example - "He says 'I can't wait to get into the field and start planting'. Then he says 'I'm tired of planting. I wish we were cultivating.' Then it's on to 'I really hate irrigating. I wish it was harvest.' That leads into 'I wish harvest was over. I'm ready for winter.'"
She's right. I apparently have a short attention span.
And man, am I ever ready for spring. It's been 2 months since harvest ended. I'm getting bored. Of course, as I write this, 20-30 hours in the tractor are looming, as it looks like I'm going to be moving snow in the next couple of days. That's not much fun, though. I get a lot of tractor butt when moving snow (tractor butt is a condition that occurs when you sit in a tractor for many hours without moving. Basically, your butt starts hurting, along with your lower back and knees.)
I also want it to be spring so I can take some pictures and start this blog on the course I want to take it, which is some type of agriculture advocacy. So what if only a few people follow it? I like talking about ag and I like taking pictures of the equipment we have and the ground we farm.
So. Spring. Anytime you want to get here, that's just fine with me.
I'm starting something today that I might or might not remember to do every Friday. It's something I'd like to call:
A Piece of Farm Equipment I Think It Would Be Cool To Have
Or something like that. Help with the name is appreciated. Today's nominee is the John Deere 6030:
