After Wednesday, Iím convinced thereís no better reality check than planting fence posts. A few upward lifts and downward blows of that iron driver will let you know if youíve been spending too much time on your duff.
Loading and off-loading a few dozen metal gates will do it, too. So will stapling a few hundred drawings on a huge wall (which in and of itself is not bad, itís the balancing act high above a cement floor on the top rung of a ladder, hoping to avoid a Humpty Dumpty situation, thatís the strenuous part).
In fact, I worked so hard setting up for Chenango County Dairy Day at the fairgrounds I didnít even have a chance to take notes for this story. Iíll have to recall it from memory.
