You know the farmers of the family are desperate for help
when the oldest son asks me to come to the field to drive
the truck and trailer while haygrazer bales are loaded.
It's not that I can't drive, it's my following directions that
can create problems.I knew it would be interesting
when my instruction from oldest son Cody was
"Stop when I honk".
The honking stopped after a few stops and I figured
that I was doing my job so well, that honking
was no longer needed.
When we arrived at the bale wrapper with our load of bales,
my next job was to watch the wrapper and push the button
to stop the machine if I had the hand signal from Cody.
Wow, hand signals and no honking!
I was feeling so proud that I was performing my jobs so well.
When all the bales were wrapped, this was how it
looked as I looked behind me.
I'm thankful for each bale that will be
enjoyed by our dairy and beef cows this winter
and for the opportunity to work beside my family.
Unfortunately I did find out that my job performance
may not have been as good as I thought because
every time Cody honked, the red wasp would come out
of the horn in the old loader tractor.
That's how it goes down on the dairy farm!
