The last few days are a blur..
On last wednesday, I flew down to WestPalmBeach, on Thursday I packed up my Mother's van for her summer spent at the farm in Michigan.. ON friday I started out on the 2 day drive. 7am to 7:30pm on Friday.. On Saturday, 8am to 4pm.. damned glad that is over with until September.
Saturday after I got back, there were a few small thunderstorms around.. one developed a very strong gust-front,, I'll estimate the winds at 60+mph..
the wind took down a few tree branches, but pulled the lag bolts holding the sliding door track out of the barn,, and left a sliding barn door in the driveway..
Sunday, well I felt like I'd been run over by a truck.. aftereffects of the drive I think.. I got a few things done around the place, but not much..
Today I have two helpers, the woodworking guy who built my staircase, he's working on trim and stair railing in the breezeway.. And will replace a few
fence boards on the old fence out back.. the wind was strong enough on saturday to blow off several of the fence rails.. they are really rotted,
So a few new fence rails to make the place look a bit better.
And I'm on my third painter.. SIGH.. What's with work ethics with young people today?? The first two worked hard for a day or two, then didn't show up again..
This one I hope will be reliable, but I only have him untill the 15th..
I think the place is looking better, but it still is a mess.. see the attached photo.
The weekend gathering on the 23/24th is fast approaching.. but the list is getting a lot of things marked off .
OK, gotta go.
