Just in case you haven’t had your fill of educators on student abuse cases:
However, that isn’t what is on my mind – I have equipment failure on my mind, and household pests. I do.
Needed the tractor this morning and it had a flat tire. Big wheel flat. Called the Co-Op and they told me it would be two or three days before the truck could get to me. Called the Renter and told my problem, but he was missing. As was his wife, as was his mother. Left messages.
I had visions of him bringing over cattle not knowing the North fence had a hole in it, so I decided to drive over and find him, or one of them and tell them eye ball to eye ball. Found Renter on his knees begging a bolt on his lawn mower to come loose.
Begging didn’t do it.
Got involved with him looosening those stupid bolts (took two of us, one under, one over), and then found the started was bad; pulled that and needed to go to Wichita for parts.
Got the parts and grabbed bite at Michey D’s (lousy food) as we hadn’t had breakfast. Came home and fixed the silly lawn mower.
Half a day shot and the cattle still not picked up from the auction house. Another day of fees having them feed the fellows.
So, I suppose, the calves will spend a week or so over at renters place, which isn’t the best of solutions, while his quarter mile of five strand fence is replaced. And I’m two weeks behind on that pasture he wants me to bush hog.
Equipment problems. Love them.
Wonder if School Principles find teachers equipment.
The household pests is easy. Cockroaches and mice. No cockroaches I don’t have, mice I do.
The space station is probably the only man made structure in the universe without one or the other, or both of the pests.
Now they are shipping twenty live mice to the space station. What’s that all about? The didn’t have any and want some?
The cockroaches I’m pretty sure they already have. Why introduce mice to such a worry free environment.
