The old log building on our property looked like this in August.
And yesterday a wind-storm knocked down one of the little trees in front.
So it was time to take all the vines off and cut down the other rotting tree to the right.
Time to call on the old tractor.
The building is covered with barn board and underneath it is log.
It has a shed roof on it that is now rotting. We found a few nests up there.
Once we are done the clean-up I will show you the building again.
We were given some free wood from another lot to dry. This will probably be ready for burning in two years from now.
It's a pretty big pile.
My job will be to stack it nicely. Maybe next week. Or the next....
I found this little guy in the wood-pile and took him over to the fence where he wouldn't get stepped on.
I remember loving these little creatures as a kid.
Cutest darn things.
And speaking of loving some creatures, look who came by to say 'howdy' just before we were ready to leave.
I've named him Davey (King of the wild frontier)
but I'm sure he has a more dignified name than that.
He looks so happy and healthy. I am almost positive he uses our lot to hunt and that's just fine with me.
It is raining buckets today but we'll be back tomorrow for more clean-up.
We'll be dressed for the weather; sweater, jeans and gloves.
Audrey says "Thanks for all the nice birthday wishes." She just polished off a quarter can of tuna. Yep, she's lovin' her day.
