Enjoying your job means enjoying the sights for free. As a sprayer operator I've always enjoyed the wildlife I see while working. The family I'm sure thought I was full of BS many times with my stories of strange encounters. Like the time a mule buck got his horns caught up in my boom for a 20 seconds or the time I had a an owl come outta the crop only to fly into the boom where he grabbed ahold and road along for more than a mile. Yesterday my son was spraying and when we got home for supper he came into the house just beeming and started telling a story. Said that just after I drove past him taking the International water truck home, he drove over a flock of Huns that flew up all around him[this is always cool] and one of the little guys got caught between the support cable and boom. Said he had to stop to release him and was just elated. He said he then went into the little field on the next quarter that has a beautiful little pond and a large bull moose was out swimming to cool off[this would be the same slough I showed pics of where the beaver stole wheat for his house]. Said he remembered stories of me stopping to watch so he did too :lol: . He was amazed at how much water ran off the moose as it walked outta the water :roll: . He then saw 6 Mule bucks that he had to raise the boom to keep from hitting a couple. He now knows part of the reason I love my job so much.
If you enjoy your job it isn't work. :wink:

Always maintained that if you didn't enjoy what you were doing, you were in need of a different job. I enjoyed the electrical field, but I really enjoy being retired and not tied to a clock.

The sun has been my clock most of my life. I had quite a few clock jobs but they lasted a very short time as I hated them.

Why train? There are complete idiots getting paid everyday.

Have I told you how many badgers I have seen this summer?
