Thanks Jerry. It was so dusty loading the demo trailer today that my eyes are still watering and burning a little. I had the big boss (GC) on this site blocked in for about 20 minutes (until I noticed him and moved out of the way) ... so he knows I was there today. smile

Today's misadventure was a busted hub cap -- the dump site is getting tight and I must have turned onto a log backing in ... frown Noticed it when I got back to the shop (about 6 miles). Had a new one on and the hub refilled in 10 minutes. Glad I noticed it before heading back to the job site (an hour ride) ... Could've been a bad day.

My first paid truck driving job was with a 1964 Mack B-73 with a 1600 gallon water tank, doing dust control on a California construction site. The San Joaquin valley in central California is at least 90% sand, so job sites get dusty in a hurry! Later, I would spend all day spraying water onto the roofs of 100 yard long chicken houses to keep the fryers growing inside from suffocating from the 90+ degree heat. Those were some stinky places!

What really stinks is when they clean out chicken houses between broods.

The farm manager said that as well as cooling down the buildings by spraying water on the roof, that big Cummins Diesel with a straight pipe off the turbo roaring by 10 feet away kept the chickens running from side to side and flapping their wings. That kept the air inside the place moving and helped keep the temp under control.

Carl/Jerry ... Have I mentioned the cows? Today, it was the cows again. I dumped my first load at the Amish farm and after lowering the bed back down on the demo trailer, securing the gate and hoping back in the Pete to head back to the job site ... I was stopped by a bunch of curious cows staring at me and blocking the exit. It was funny. Annoying, but funny. Elam (one of the farm owner's sons) came to shoo them out of the way.

The way that reads John, is that you hauled some cows and dumped them at a farm.
They liked it so much, they wanted another ride!

Be that as it may, Don ... I've been hauling loads of brush and tree debris from clearing a 5-acre building lot. smile The cows were just an added attraction.

Cows are a simple beast. They seem to only be aware of their only purpose. Our food. Everything else just seems to confuse them.

Several years ago, I was driving a van full of USAF Junior ROTC drill team members from the high school where I was teaching to Montgomery Alabama to compete in the annual drill competition there. I stopped by my farm to put out a roll of hay. Watching a bunch of inner city kids experience what was probably their first exposure to farm life was amusing. One of the girls on the team kept commenting on how pretty one calf's eyes were- - - - -until I commented that she'd probably see that one again soon- - - -on a Big Mac! Her reaction was priceless!
