New work camera


Nikkala called last week and i said I needed a camera so i don.t have to download from my cell phone, she said they had one for sale, and we decided to get it with some memory sticks. Here are some of the first pictures. can anyone tell where they were taken?

we have a cat named HOAR


When Tameka was little we brought home a little calico cat. She was a very friendly cat. Well every four months she comes up pregnant then she hides her kittens and the tom cat decides he doesn't want the responsibility so he does away with the little ones.then the process starts all over. How many litters can a female cat have in eleven years every four months. well here is the snap shot.

riding horses at grandpas

Well this is how we ride horses at grandpas. all you need is a big brother and a jockey. one jockey assistant and camera man. There is no mess and you don't have to brush the horse and saddle him. video

must be my water


It was good to have Hudson,Dalanie and Karisa show up late last night. Big H was wound up tighter then a drum. I watched some ball games and played with the kids. Well I fixed french toast for breakfast and who should appear but little D and not the hair she came with last night, maybe its my water. She did bring her appetite and they have already gone visiting.

what we think people say


Sometimes people say things that are not the truth but in there eyes and choice of words are different than what i visualize. case in point, Bob Beck says ( I have a little hole in my main line.) This is not what i thought.

genuis genes.


Well I just finished a little job out to the pig barn. last week ray helms called and said he needed my help now. I loaded up and went out and he said i would have to climb up the elevator 85 foot to see the problem. The top roller that all the belt and cups go over had broken the main shaft away from the pulley. The belt and cups weigh aver five hundred pounds. So i Thought what i needed and came home and built a little pipe bird cage and spreader bar. I took it out and hoisted all the stuff up the rope and took what i thought i needed. Ray helped me set the bird cage on top of the elevator leg hooked up my come along and fit some pins under the belt and raised the belt up three feet then we took the bearing bolts out and i torched the frame work so we could lift out the pulley and shaft and gear box all at once. We tied the rope over the motor housing and took a wrap around the ladder and then we let this 150 lbs down from the top in the ladder cage.
I brought it home and had to rebuild the 12 x 16 inch pulley, new bearings and seals .
Then today I went out and hoisted all the stuff and welder lead welded a hoop on the motor frame and put a pulley , then ran the rope up the cage and over the top to the skid steer loader and ray backed up the skid loader and I guided the rope up the ladder cage. We lifted the new piece up and in place adjusted the bearings and linedup the big pulley and welded all the cut out pieces, welded the gear box stablizer bar. grabbed the come along and let it down with the belt, took out the pins, let everything down and as I rolled ;up the leads Ray said that's why I call
Warren Parish. You can see in the picture how high up we are.
