Party TimeWe had a big party, being that it’s the end of July, and totally trashed the place. I mean like we knocked out the walls, ceiling fell in, roof blown off, everything. What a party! The geese did not … Continue reading
Tractor and extra BucketThe tractor left on Monday to visit the mechanic. It has been two years and it is starting to feel rather loosey-goosey in the joints. He’ll give it a total overhaul, beyond the routine maintenance I do. … Continue reading
Electric Wire & ConduitWe are installing new electric underground back to the previous pole. This will enable our big 2009 project at the old hay shed. I dug the trench this past weekend. It was on a steep bank which … Continue reading

Pretty Pathetic Pumpkin PlantsThe pumpkin plant above should be far larger by now. Almost all of our beans, peas, corn and sunflower seeds rotted in the ground. The tomatoes look like transplants. My father told me this weekend that his … Continue reading
Kavi on CliffKavi’s no fool on the hill. From up on his high perch he can see just about everything and hear even more. He’s a bushy tailed sentry that keeps everyone safe. Outdoors: 74째F/52째F Partially SunnyTiny Cottage: 74째F/70째F
