It's like 98 degrees (F) outside, and I've been outside sweating my backside off longer than I've been inside today. The sun was blazin' and it was just plain HOT!!

I wired up a barn today, poured some concrete, got some hooks welded onto my skid-steer bucket and my tractor bucket, swept out a 6,000 sq. ft. out building, rigged up a generator with some 50A circuits and a panel, worked on my project boat a little bit and helped the wife do some stuff out in the yard/field. It's HOT!!

I must have sweated out 3 gallons today, despite drinking water all day.

I just sat down and poured a nice ice cold light beer into an iced mug and added in some Clamato juice....AAAAHHHHhhhhhhhhh!!! THAT's GOOoooD!!!!

Wow...I might have to imbibe in another!

Good stuff, Maynard...when you're out in the sun all day!

You can use V-8, but Clamato is better.

I try to watch sodium intake, and Clamato is high-sodium, but when you've been just soaked all day, replacing some of that salt in the old bod' is a good thing and it just perks you right up!

Heh, if I know I'm going to drink a bit of Clamato and beer I'll even go into town to the grocery store and buy a bottle of clam juice to add to the Clamato! Then it's really "clammy".

Hey, I might live in the west, but my family is from the northeast, and clams are awesome! I can eat me a whole mess of fried clams!!

My grandmother lived in Rockport, Mass, for exactly 103 years. She knew every lobsterman and clammer on the east coast. Whenever I'd visit we'd eat like kings on lobster and clams! (all for free usually too). She never drove a car, never had her license. Lived to 102 on her own (on the 3rd floor with only stairs no less!). She used to freak out when I'd eat the claws! She'd say..."Awww...we just use those for soup, you never actually eat them!" I would devour them!

I'd go down to the docks (on her direction) and the boat captains would "give" me things called "culls". Culls were lobsters missing a claw, or something, something not presentable in a market. They'd give them to us for free, baskets full of them. And the clams...oh man! Those Ipswitch, Coho, Little neck, cherrystone, clams...they were all different, but ALL delicious.

Gramma' used to make clam chowder you'd fight over! I mean, literally fight!

I'm fine with the Clamato...it's the LIGHT beer I take issue with.

If you can survive everything you did today and drink Clamato juice, you can survive "Naked and Afraid."

I remember my father would put tomato juice in his beer, usually when he had a bad hangover.
He used to salt his beer sometimes too.
I drink my tomato/clamato separate from my beer.

Ummm...no, I'm not supposed to be, and I overdid it a bit today, and now I'm payin'.

And no, #232 is just not giving up that calf! She always holds out. Everybody, even Jack the bull, is glued to her. I've never seen a cow calve as big of calves as this girl does. She holds onto them for what seems like forever!!! Every single day I think she's gonna go, but she hasn't yet. I'm starting to get worried about her (very). Two years ago she calved a 97lb calf!!! (that's GIGANTIC!!). Her calf was bigger than calves which had been on the ground for over a MONTH!!

I'm thinking this one is going to be even bigger still. I'm afraid it's going to kill her.

We don't do drugs to induce labor, but I'm thinking we might have to this time. Sadly, I think this will be her last calf.

Me too.

She's our most favorite momma. And yes, I'm now worried about her.

ETA - She's holding that calf. She knows she has some of the best calf's of the whole herd. She's smart (most intelligent cow I've ever known), but she's in trouble this time (I think). She knows she's near the "end" of her productive life. She's very proud, and she's a good momma. She's now the matriarch, and this is new for her. We culled her senior matriarch earlier this year, now she's in charge. She's holding a BIG calf...and for some reason she's afraid.

Our herd bull, Jack, (all 2.300 lbs of him) is with her, and he's very protective (very). He's very upset.

Jack is glued to her now. This is unusual. Normally Jack just leaves and wants nothing to do with the girls, but not this one.

Jack HATES coyotes, and he will run them down and stomp them into dirt. So, he's on guard....and there's nothing getting near #232.

I can't even get near her.

So tonight we will cut Jack out of the mix, and pen #232 up. It won't be easy, but that's life.

I LOVE that place!!!!!!! She must have had some bucks if she could afford to live there. I wanted to live there ever since I was a kid. Bearskin neck with all the quaint little shops, galleries and restaurants, the ocean...heaven!

That's right where she lived, Bearskin Neck.

No, she wasn't wealthy by any means, she just lived there for over a century. In fact, when she was a young girl all those quaint shops were actually functioning businesses (not the touristy kind). The town was a hardcore fishing town back in the day. It blows my mind to think she lived there in the 1890's. She was like a part of their history. I think she lived there for free actually.

I remember once sitting on her porch which overlooked a modern brick building. I asked her what the building was, and she said..."Oh, that's where they stick the 'old people' when they're ready to die". ...

She was 101 years old when she told me that!!!

ETA - I could tell some serious stories about that lady and some of her friends! I went for a car ride to the store once with one of her friends (who was also over 100). She went blowing through a stop sign at a busy intersection. I told her she just ran a stop sign. She says to me (very matter of factly)..."Yeah, I know, but I'm old; I don't have time for that!"

What is a "clamato"? Is it something to do with tomatoes and clams?

It is a blend of tomato and clam juice.

Thanks. I'm not at all a picky eater but that sounds incredibly nasty, and I like clams and tomatoes.

It's the national drink of Canada. Mofo's guzzle that stuff up there.

You might want to give it a try. It does sound like it wouldn't be good, but I like it.

I'll try anything once. If I can find a small container I will, small because I don't want the rest to go to waste if it turns out I hate it.

You can always dump some vodka into it and make a Bloody Caesar, Canada's second most popular drink after Clamato.
