Guess I won't have to do anything tomorrow. You done enough for the both of us............ Glad you had a good productive day (minus the foot stomp). Raining, windy and down right cold here today. Fixed Colin's tractor right outside the patio doors but thats it. Tomorrow's another day.

Sure hope y'all get some rain. We've been needing it pretty bad around here. Got it just in time to help the farmers with planting starting up. Also help us with our new garden.

yeppers!



got up this am and tended to the animals.. then sharpened up my short and long machette, and then went at the fence line limbing overhanging shrubs and trees, and removing any suckers and sticker bushes/small trees that have come up on my fence line.

raked up some woody debris in a pile in the back... decided to come in and clean the house.. counters, swept and mopped floors..e tc... showered.. had lunch... had a 45m nap.. now at work.. :)

No other braces. Thought about it but not much clearance when backin up and the wheel spins. Gonna be watchin it for a while to see how it goes. So far really don't look like much stress on it. Watched him mow a little bit.

if id does need another brace, might use a piece of flat and go from the upper bracket tucked up close to the 2 pieces of tubing, hitting the deck at the base of the tubing.

as you say.. simply may not need it... and if not.. no need to keep dressing it up
