Kids? :shock: We are talking goats, right?

45 ponies under the hood and the loader bucket is all I have so far. It's obviously a used unit. The first time I need a backhoe I will jump off the bridge in deciding to buy or rent. Backhoes are not cheap as you know. I have the Zero turn to cut with for now. It's fast and does a good job. I may add a mower or bush hog as needed. As is it get me so I am able to jump on a bunch of projects. I have trees to cut, wood to move, and a lot of big rock to move around. Oh, I can't wait to turn the compost mountain.

New Holland is just a ways north of here so the factory and parts are close.


It gets delivered Tuesday.


The backhoe decision was made for me at the time I bought my tractor. The backhoe came as part of the package and has served me well for the building and drainage projects. But I as finish these projects by next Spring, I won't be using it very much.
I suspect my box scraper and front loader will get more use while managing the "processed hay" up in the pasture.

Buying vs renting really depends on what projects and how many projects you may be considering. I have very rocky soil, so I was forced to use a backhoe for trenching. If you have decent soil, and you're thinking of trenching projects with a backhoe, I'd recommend renting a trencher instead. It's much faster and easier with a trencher.

I am good thanks, as you can see, the wee lad is growing up.

This weekend, he decided to break into total copycat mode - very cute, but he was copying every expression that we were doing. Was funny to see.

How is Lois?

Lois is doing well. My normal response is, "Not bad for a woman." Guaranteed to get me into trouble every time.

Good Day All :)
Went on a week long holiday in BC to a Roots and Blues Festival, then off to friends who have a place on Kootenay Lake for a few days. Back to work for a couple days, then off to a work weekend out at our rec land prepping to move a couple buildings that are in big danger should we have another big flood like this year and 2005. A full work week this week, then off to the land for Labour Day weekend to do more work, but mostly play. :)

She was great when I saw her this spring. You can see her ear between these two fine gentlemen's heads. :)

Ok, 6 days is long enough.

First day of school tomorrow. Facebook is full of posts about how happy parents are, how sad parents are, how happy students are, how sad students are, how many lunches are already packed, what grades all the kids are in this year, etc.

All I can think about is that I have to start leaving earlier because of all the school buses that will be slowing me down on the way to work. :(

Don't mind the school busses here. Since we live on a bus route, come winter when it snows on a school day, we will more than likely get the road plowed passed our house.:)

Back in IL we had the county assessor living 2 doors down from us. Our roads seemed to be one of the first to get plowed and re-plowed until the snow stopped. Of course once you got out of the neighborhood it was a different story.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
