Okay, so there always has to be a couple break downs. Unfortunately I've experienced this first hand. THANK GOD it has always involved INSURED equipment, fence or stop signs...NOT humans. Machines break, just like office computers tend to crash, so its not an item we would brag about. But, I had to post this one. This beautiful green wagon decided to blow a tire while Nathan was hauling it to town Friday night...right at 5 o'clock. Of course, no one was available to come do a quick fix. Nathan tried, but Saturday they had to resort to vacuuming it out due to the weight. What should have taken an hour or so, ended up being a public display along highway 1 for almost 24.
Its been safely fixed and retired.:) Back into the fields!
