    If your knee has been swollen for that long better get it fixed. You might have to do total knee replacement if it gets too bad. I've had friends who have had a total and takes a while to get over it.

    A neighbour of mine is an old retired vet. He has had knee problems for years also. To many kicks from the cows.

    I don't work for any company.... I have my own authority and I pull for mainly Cargill. I don't know how many hopper companies there are within a 50 mile radius of Hutch....probably twenty to thirty.

    I do have a T-600 but it's basically stock so nothing to fancy about it. When were you custom cutting here?

    I actually crossed paths with Big John monday evening, and he was on his way to Waco, so I'm betting he's been out of the mess of weather we've been having.

    Finally got some much needed moisture Tuesday evening, anywhere from 1 1/2" up to 2 3/4"! It came later in the evening around 9:00PM, so missed all the hail and tornadoes that fired up earlier in the heat of the day. Makes all the crops look 100&#37; better.

    Son was hauling grain from Anthony to Enid this week, called me and said his ABS trailer light was on. He finished hauling for the day, then dropped it by a shop to have it checked out. Wouldnt think it was anything serious, as the trailer isnt even a year old yet!

    Glad you got some rain. Got .30 at the house but I'm sure there was more to the west of me. Rain with this mild temps should make for a good wheat crop.

    I've had my trailer ABS light come on occasionaly. I've found if I back up a little bit and then pull forward it goes out. I have no idea why but it works on my trailer.

    Nope, been a pretty slow week for me, replaced some boards on the drop deck floor, then coated it with linseed oil, working on some projects around the house, but not much trucking. How about you?
