Milking Team day 3 6/14/2017
We once again gathered for the sole purpose of milking Bessie. However I for got my camera, so lets just say – it didn’t go according to plan. Hand milking…gets old real quick.
I am determined that I will find out what went wrong with the milker. Having the directions translated from Chinese to English and sketches that look like a 2 year old drew them, will not detour us!! We are the MILKING TEAM!
After oiling the piston, we still had no pressure, well not enough to have the suction cups stay and pull any kind of milk from a very uncomfortable Mama cow. We found that one LITTLE tiny sketch mentioned that the three way non returning valve was suppose to have a ball bearing. We however didn’t have any such thing. We took a little bolt and screw combo and placed it in the valve, WE HAD PRESSURE!!! DID you see that, I actually sound like I know what I am talking about, don’t worry, I won’t let it go to my head!
Just about 2 hours after the monumental discovery of what was wrong, Peter’s Dad came knocking at the back door. – Yep you guessed it he found a spare ball bearing in the box.
Milking Team day 4 6/15/2017
After making a trip into Denver and returning we (Harvey and I) Set about releasing Bessie’s udder pressure.
Come and listen to my story about a woman named Chris
A poor city girl, barely kept her family fed,
And then one day she was under a cow hoping for some food,
And up through the hose come a bubblin MOOOOOO.
Milk that is, White gold, Colorado tea.
Well the first thing you know ol Chris’s a Country Girl,
The kinfolk said “Chris move away from there”
Said “Denver is the place you ought to be”
So she dug in her heels and said “Not from the view I see!”
Plains, that is. fields of grain and friendly folk!
The Kirk Country Girl!!
Tune in tomorrow, same bat time same bat station! ’nuff said.
