Today I took the day off from my day job as an electrician to take my daughter Annika to Buffalo Childrens Hospital for her pre-op appointment. She is having surgery next Tuesday for a VNS (vagal nerve stimulator). Hopefully this device will stop her from having so many seizures. We got home by 12:30 so I changed into my barn clothes and along with my 4-year-old son William we went to the farm to finish repairing the manure spreader. The beaters that send the manure out of the spreader were completely destroyed from years of use and so I had a new set built by Poor Mans' Repair. My Dad and I did the heavy part of the install over the weekend leaving just some small stuff to finish bolting on it today. After about an hour and a half of work William and I loaded it up and tested it out. all went well and we had just enough time to spread three loads of manure. Very good day!
