Cliff cut some low-grade fescue that we normally wouldn't bother to bale, so he'd have something to test the big-baler on. I don't have a picture to show it, but they did finally make a decent bale and get the twine to tie. I was back at the house fixing Cliff's favorite, spaghetti, for his birthday dinner, when the big event occurred.
I wanted to have some sort of party on his birthday, but anyone I'd normally invite works the day shift. So, I invited the boys who help Cliff so much. They've always loved to eat with him, even to the point that they'll go home and get their lunch and bring it over here. I don't know what the big deal is, but today they actually had an invitation, and got spaghetti too. They ate plenty. So much that none of them had room for dessert. I made a low-fat Jello cake, thinking of Cliff's diet, and a cherry pie with some of our fresh cherries. I love cherry pie, and I'll likely end up eating most of it myself and gaining five pounds.
Anyhow, it's been a pleasant day. Now Cliff gets to go to work. He gets a day off with pay for his birthday, but he chose to take it near the Fourth of July weekend, when our son will be here.
