    My wife is an operator. She said if it wasn't rolled you'll probably get runoff lines.

    Might as well PJ ..... I have lines too ! :p
    There may be 80 ton of lime out there next trip out . That stuff packs good over the breaker I have down already . By then I should have enough fixed on the roller to get a little work of of that old girl .
    I need to get back to cleaning my custom knives & do more inventory ..... it's a lot more fun than moving rock !

    Cloudy & chances of rain ....... same as yesterday & the last week .
    Stiff back after cutting some grass yesterday .
    The farmer ran his tractor in wet grass so when I cut I get a fun ride around the shop . Once I get trees in his way that should stop . Then I will roll the grass & try to make a smoother ride around there . :)
    I have my permit in hand now so shop 3 is a go again ! :cool:
    Mom & dad had some kind of life insurance I found the other day ...... called them & they said yes . I asked how much ? .... they said the couldn't tell me . I have to get papers from them & fill those out then send those back then they can tell me . More paper work & run around . Seems like the world is full of paper pushers . :p

    When my Mom died 9in 2017, it was an absolute nightmare getting information.
    But, 10 times or more, worse was a few stocks and Mutual Funds. The Mutual Fund she had through Wells Fargo was a real beyotch to get sold and sent to the estate.
    AND, I was the Executor. Nearly a year even with our lawyer on them.

    Finally, I just told them "OK Wells, see you in court very soon." Did the trick for us though.

    Rain off & on all day here but I did manage to get some work done ! :p
    Then I fell into the play mode ....... more fun playing . The cleaning & inventory has to be done but a lot more fun than moving rock around ! :) Speaking of rock ..... I didn't even go to shop 2 to see if the dropped any off .

    Lots of fog & rain on the way .
    Tornado watches starting again .
    Good day to do some sorting & boxing up . I will get a pile boxed up & then bring in my 1 ton box truck to take them out to shop 2 for storage . When that happens ...... there will be some nice changes in shop 1 ! :)
    When shop 3 is set up & ready ...... the attic & shop 2 things will go in there . It will be nice to use a fork lift to store things in shop 3 :p
    Starting to think 60 x 104 may not be big enough . :rolleyes: Having room to work on projects inside will be the nicest change of all . A organized tool room will be a big plus too .

    85 & humid yesterday . :)
    Beats the heck out of cold & tossing wood in !
    Chances of rain here so may run out to shop 2 & see if the rock ever came . Take along the cables & filter for the roller & maybe even put them in . Wrenching on the fork truck & roller would be a change of pace around here . Still a lot to clean up outside at shop 2 but at least I am getting the lot cleared out for the building . I need to borrow or rent or hire a semi tractor to move the Pepsi trailer . Ten check the grade & probably buy more rock :p If I had the time & a sheep foot roller I would have brought the grade up with dirt . Lime is the cheapest fill you can buy so that's a plus .

    Brainfart dropped by my head early today !
    Was at shop 2 at 6 a.m. today . Cloudy & cool but good working time ..... until .... the rain hit with only 15 min. work done ..... went in the shop for about 5 min. rain quit ...... back I go pushing rock around ..... sun came out & I was a happy camper ...... then the rain came ..... with the sun out ...... back in the shop wet again ...... quit so waited a few extra min. & out I went again . Made good progress so got the roller & was smashing everything in sight ....... rain came really soaked this time ..... said a few magic words & got in the car with the heater on to dry out . Sun came out so I wore my slicker just in case ! :p
    Then it got so hot & humid I couldn't wear my slicker or flannel shirt ..... put the pressure washer back together ..... got the fork lift running & outside ......gassed everything up & filled the washer with rain water ..... around 500 gallons ...... then brainfart 2 hit me ......may have been the heat :rolleyes: ...... clean off the driveway & blow decals off the roller ...... wet again ! Came home with limestone coated jeans .... sun burned face .... back .....front ... & feet !
    This is why I don't worry about cv19 ...... stupid ideas will kill me off long before that does ! :)

    Warm & rain today .
    Guess I will order some more rock . :p
    Trying to sleep with a sun burn is always fun too . Can't wait to see what new adventures is on for today . First on my list is call & see why I have a bill for cement I already paid for . That will be fun ..... then go pay for rock . Then meet with the building guy & pick colors & plunk down some money on that . May need to drive along the highway & pick up cans to cash in for supper tonight ! :p
    Sorting & organizing isn't all bad ...... at least it doesn't cost anything ! :)
    I should go find some guns & treasures to buy ...... yep that would make me feel better ! :) No auctions to go to is causing withdraws here I think . :(

    It is interesting outlaw ...... you fight for money they owe you . Funny part is they won't tell you how much it is until you fill out a boat load of papers . Small or large amount ..... they have a death grip on the money . In a bad mood like I am today .... that's a good time to get to calling those turds . :cool:

    Good luck on cashing in cans Ron. I tried two places yesterday and was told Iowa Dept of Health has not agreed to yet.

    Get Dad to tell/show you where every paper is and about any he lost the papers on. It could save you months of your time later!

    Cloudy with rain this afternoon .
    Not .... I say not going to shop 2 today !
    My sun burn makes me look like a fat cherry !
    :p
    Time will be spent on shop 1 today ..... cutting grass & cleaning up around here .
    They start on shop 3 in 5 weeks so now I have time for other things that need doing .
    I need to unload my 1 ton box truck to use to get things out of shop 1 . A busier summer than I had planned ! :cool:
    Honestly it is fun doing things outside after a crappy winter . :)

    Had a good day here at shop 1 with some progress . My brother wanted a generator so I found him one that is 5000 wt. for $50 . It started on first pull . He was real happy with that . Not to mention I picked it up & took it to his house . Also managed to cut grass here at shop 1 too !
    Started tackling a big job here .... clean out kitchen cabinets ..... wow ..... I never realized how many plastic containers I have saved over the years ! They will be in the trash tomorrow . :p
    Heat & humidity is up early this year & the gnats are out in force ! I keep forgetting to take my bug survival kit with me to shop 2 .
    Next trip it will go along ! :cool:

    Another rain day .
    Back to paper work & phone calls . :(
    Looking for a good price on 15 x 15 doors for shop 3 . Was told yesterday that the place I usually go to is high priced . It takes 4 weeks to get 2 doors they say because of cv 19 ..... seem to hear that excuse a lot lately !
