Our new farm implement

This is Cliff's $400 round baler.  It works all right except that the twine doesn't tie when it's supposed to.  I'm sure Cliff can get it working, and this will save him a lot of lifting and tugging during the hot summer weather.  Of course, in order to see if he has it tying right as he works on it, he'll need some hay to bale; so he went out and mowed the small pasture.  We have a little banking to do in the morning, and then he'll choose from the half-dozen things around here that are demanding his attention... and then go to work at 2:30!  Summers around here demand a lot of him.  The things he does around home, though, are enjoyable to him.

Oh man....baling hay brings back so many hot, sticky, itchy memories for me.  Not to mention the sudden appearance of bull snakes!  I don't miss that at all.
