He and my dad went to look at a tractor yesterday, and are probably going to buy it. It's a John Deere, and our (free for a year) Kubota is also on its way. Red, blue, green, orange - continuing to add to our rainbow of machinery.
Today Kris is meeting with another barn builder, which we hope to build this year. So, happy birthday, Kris! Build yourself a barn.
My mom got him a gift he asked for - it's called Lightning Reaction Electric Shock Game. This is how it works. You all hold a controller and look at a flashing light. When the green light turns to red, you push the button on your controller. The last person to push the button gets a shock. We played and I lost. It was quite a jolt! I yelled, dropped my controller, and massaged my hand. I felt it down to my toes. It took me a lot of courage to play again, but I did - and Kris lost. BUT HE HAD NO REACTION.
"Didn't it hurt?" I asked. He said, "Not really. Maybe I've been shocked by the cattle's electric fence too many times. One time I touched that and my shoulder hurt for two days."
We had it on shock level one. You can turn it up to four. I guess that's the 'works with cattle' level.
