This afternoon, my daughter and I headed into town, first to pick up the riding mower, then to pick up fixings for a wiener roast. Since the mower was too far gone to fix everything, it cost less than $45 for the work that was done to put the drive chain back on and tighten … Continue reading Bringing it home
Well, today's trip into the city turned out to be decidedly unpleasant. We usually plan the order of stores we go to around whether or not we're getting fresh or frozen food.

This afternoon, while my daughters broke down the pile of branches I'd trimmed at the back of the house, I got the ladder out to caulk the holes in the wall left from the original internet satellite dishes. Hearing the noise, my younger daughter came around to help. Sweetheart that she is, she braved the … Continue reading Another Mystery

So... we have a National Geographic remote sensor, attached to the clothes line post, with electric tape. (The rope is there because the post as started to lean … Continue reading I’m Sensing Something – or not!
A few more steps forward, today - and the girls are still outside, working on cleaning up around the yard, so the progress continues even now. The most exciting thing for me is, the septic guy came!
