The Adventures of Fixing a Windmill...Step by Step by Step...
First the cow gets thirsty
This one was very impressed by me
From the cows perspective
Then you notice that there's not enough water coming out of the ol' pipe there
Yep, definetly no water being pumped
The hubby calling for backup because he broke something off of the certain doo hicky that connects to the pump thingy
The only part I remember from this phone conversation was that he needed a "male part"
Then I was explained the birds and the bees of windmills :-)
Busy pulling the long part of the windmill out of the ground to investigate what ranchers call "leathers"
This ended up being the culprit of today's adventure
And there they are......worn out leathers
Overview of the problem
New leathers are like brand spanking new shoes to girls
Although leathers can last up to a year and I don't know about you girls but I sure can't go that long without buying a new pair of shoes??????
I decided I should make an appearance on this blog every once in awhile
(Yeah, that's me in the lens. Just in case. I worry people don't "get" me sometimes)
Looks like I need to do a little patch work on those jeans hmm Brock??
And help arrives with the "male part"
Yeah, I don't understand it either
And because I can
Here's a picture of our adorable dog
He's at the stage now where he does nothing but sleep all day
