Disclaimer - I did NOT take the above photo. My camera is having "technical difficulties" so I have been unable to transfer the picture to my computer. But, for you "city folks" this is what we did yesterday!
I spent most of yesterday afternoon on a tractor. A tractor with a hay rake hooked up to it. Summertime in Missouri means hay season. We bale the hay to feed to our cattle during the long, cold Missouri winters. Our cattle would starve without that hay, so we take baling hay very seriously.
It was so hot yesterday it was absolutely miserable. And no, in case you're wondering, the tractor I was on did NOT have a cab.
But next winter when the snow flies and the cattle are standing around munching on hay, and standing behind the hay bales to get out of the cold north wind, we will remember these hot days, and smile.
