I spent a couple of hours yesterday removing the shredded deer fence that didn’t stand up to the elements and pulling up the last of the T-posts from around the fruit trees. All but two of them came out fairly easily, but those two that didn’t were darned difficult! It took a lot of pushing […]

Yesterday was a good day for a lot of reasons. And any one of them would have been enough to make me happy. One of the first things I did yesterday after feeding Alli and taking her out for her second potty of the day, was to load all of the deer fence material that […]

That’s A Big Flower!

A few months ago when Travis and Geli were helping plant Terry’s garden, they included a few sunflower seeds. Geli loves sunflowers and they have a bunch of them growing at their place. Terry was born in Kansas, the Sunflower State, so they are special to her, too. Not all of the seeds they planted […]

Wolf Wind

Do you remember the fairy tail where the big bad wolf threatened to blow the little piggies’ houses down, and then he huffed, and he puffed, and he did it? Well, the wolf wind visited our part of Alabama on Friday. The weatherman had predicted strong storms, and even the possibility of tornadoes. Late Friday […]

We were up early yesterday morning because we had a lot to get done. Our son Travis helped me put up another deer fence, this time around the garden and Terry’s raised planter beds. We appreciate Travis and his wife Geli very much because whatever we need, they are always here for us. The fence […]

It looks like today is going to be a busy day for us. We have been trying to find a primary care doctor in this area and have not had any luck so far. We got quite a few recommendations for different ones, but some aren’t taking new patients, and one that was taking new […]

What do you do when you have a lot of projects you want to get completed but have a limited budget? If you are our son Travis you become a redneck architect. A while back I told you about finding a good deal on a bunch of pallets that have three-quarter-inch plywood on one side. […]

She Cooks, Too!

In case any of you have been hiding under a rock and don’t know, in addition to all of the things she does around the house, from installing microwave ovens and splash guards to hanging window blinds, putting together bar stools, and gardening, Miss Terry cooks, too. And that’s what she did most of yesterday, […]

I think our bodies have pretty much recovered from the beating we gave them the other day when planting the garden. If our son Travis and his wife Geli hadn’t been here helping us, I think Terry and I would both be in traction. But, of course, you know that nothing slows my bride down […]

It’s Official

It’s official. We are now honest to goodness Alabamians. Yesterday we drove down to the Pickens County Seat in Carrollton to get our Alabama drivers licenses. But of course, as with everything with us, it was not without some confusion. Pickens County is very small, so the man from the Department of Motor Vehicles who […]

In yesterday’s blog I told you about how our son Travis helped me take down part of the fence on our pasture, get the deer fence started around our fruit trees, and move a bunch of pallets to the barn so I could store my tractor implements out of the weather. As I said in […]

So Much To Do

We have so much to do around here if the weather would cooperate. After hard rains Friday and half of Saturday, yesterday was a bright, sunshiny day with a good breeze blowing. We need a lot more days like that. I spent most of the day researching and writing, getting another chapter done in my […]
