As I came around the corner of the dairy a loader blocked the road. I could see the road was wet from a water cannon hitting that section. By the time I got the brakes pumped up to stop I was on the wet section. I got the truck in reverse, but the cannon was coming around to fast so I reached for the window handle, but it takes both hands in that old truck to get the window up and the old jungle cat reflexes I once had failed me. The force of the water was shocking. Not only did it blast my hat off, but also everything on the seat including my lunch was on the floor. I’m glad I had ear plugs in. The kid at the bagger had a good laugh and so did I. Lessen learned, green water on a blue T-shirt will turn yellow when dry and leave you smelling like the south end of a north bound cow.
We were cleaning out the lagoon at the dairy and he had been bedding the cows in fescue seed so the stuff in the lagoon was fairly thick. Too thick to pump anyway. We had a backhow with a big bucket loading the spreaders then we'ld haul tail out the the field, and spread it. To back up to the point that the backhoe could fill us I had to open the rear window of the tractor because it was covered with a thick brown substance. One trip I forgot to close the window and started dumping and got the beaters going. Only made it about 20 feet before I could get the window shut.
