When ya live on a farm, the work is never done.
You may finish a task, but there’s always another waiting.
Like this for instance.
Auto repair is a normal thing around here.
From basic maintenance, to major overhauls. We do it all here on the farm.
For instance, last year we rebuilt a tractor and a four wheeler.
This one was a transmission replacement.
The Captain has just as much on his list as I do. And often my help is required for him to complete something he’s working on.
Sometimes he needs an extra hand or two, or maybe just a fresh perspective.
I helped with this job, although I don’t have the strength he needed, not that there was room under there for both of us anyway, I helped by controlling the floor jack. And being a go-fer, but that comes with the territory.
It was one of those cases when extra hands and a different view helped get that monster in place.
Let me tell you, it was cold lying on my belly on that cold concrete. But as long as I’m capable I’ll be right beside my Captain helping him do whatever we needs doing.
Next on the list…..
the bathroom floor.
The Captain and his Dad will tackle that one while I paint the livingroom and dining room.
It’s too cold to be outside working and the ground won’t dry up enough to pull barbed wire so we can finish the pasture fence.
Guess we’ll be waiting for Spring to arrive to finish that job.
Until then, we’ll be getting a few needed things done inside the house.
