So I found my sunglasses today. They are mangled, scratched, bent but still somehow sit kind of strait on my face. This just reinforces the fact that my nose is better broken than it was strait because normal glasses didn't sit strait on them before and now they do.
I can't see through the mud on them and attempted to buff the scratches out. They will buff out!!! I found them as I suspected in a paddock being trampled by three big Thoroughbred geldings. How the lenses are not cracked is beyond me.
Today I lost a very important member of my family.
This is going to be hard.
This is someone who I have known for a very long time.
Someone who has always been there to lend a hand, especially with farm work, heck any work.
Someone I could always rely on.
He helped me fixing tractors, repairing harness, cutting fencing, fixing the &^%$#@%! float in the waterer in the winter, baling hay, opening those tough pickle jars. You name it, that man was there.
I will grieve and eventually move on.
I was bending over the creek in front of the one barn I work at. Somehow the big garbage pail took flight in the wind and flew into into the water. I was attempting to fish it out with a stick. I guess I didn't have as good a hold on for he tumbled into the depths of the murky water. Before I could even jump forward to catch him he was gone. I sloshed into the deep water as far as my rubber boots would take me (which was about one step before it went above my boots top)
RIP Leatherman multi tool. I am not sure how I will get my barn work done tomorrow without you. I have a replacement but it's just not the same quality on the job unless it's a leatherman. I guess I'll be saving to get myself another one of these bad boy's. They are expensive, but worth the money.
