Ok. Let me say I meant to bale yesterday

 Hay is all raked.  Dry, ready to go.  But the baler is giving me issues today.  Spent a couple of hours looking at the manual ("Pictures show are a prototype.  Your own unit may vary from this prototype".  Argh!) trying to figure out whats causing the baler not to deploy the bale twine.

 And the windrows wait.  And I have perfect weather.  And the hay is dry.   Hate you, baler.  Truely hate you today.  Want to be stacking bales now.  Want to  be baling.   The loose-leaf manual I printed out gets caught by the wind and flys all over the pasture.  Hate you baler.  Hate you manual.  Finally give up for the day.  Really annoying.  Tell the hay help to go home.   Call the dealer for the baler.  Guy will get here tommorow sometime.  Check the weather.  Weather ok.  Have 3 more days of sun after tomorrow forecast.

Walk down to the river.  Look at the water.  Air temp at 85 degrees.  Been standing in the hayfield all day.  Take a handful of water.  Lovely.  cool.

Ok.  Not so bad a day now.

We've all been there. Haying can be one of the more frustrating and nerve-wracking enterprises in this world.
