Wednesday Update

This is what is keeping Heather and I nervous. Our pear tree in the front yard has a big crack in it. Our tree guys is supposed to be here today, unless it rains, then it will be tomorrow. So we are hoping for no wind.

My Dad the ex Forest Ranger always told me it was a crappy tree. We knew that.

We got a little home project going. We bought a new giant television and are getting it installed next week over the mantel on this paneling. So I am sanding it, then I’ll caulk what needs to be caulked, prime and paint. Kind of ironic since we are having the rest of the house painted but that isn’t going to happen before the television gets here.

Here’s Lizzy the kitten (on the floor) and LJ kind of playing. We kind of underestimated the effect of losing our dachsund, Ginger, would have on the rest of the critters. They seem a lot more needy and clingy, even with each other.

Here is a sight never seen before, Abby and LJ sharing a cushion.

I went to Walmart yesterday and grabbed one of their baskets. They have tags on them. I guess they sound an alarm if you try and take one out of the store.

I’m all masked up working out at the gym.

I got a little volunteer gig evaluating trail conditions for a local government agency. This is one of the worst I’ve seen so far.

While evaluating I come across this block valve owned by one of my former employers.

And we are starting to unload stuff we don’t use. Took these games to Goodwill the other day.

Have you tried the app 1sec. It makes a video over any days you want and uses one second per day either video or stills. So the above is August.

I hope your week is going well!!

    Hey Yogi – Last summer we had to cut down a huge desiduous tree on our property due to infestation. My husband and our caretaker did it on their own. Almost landed on our barn – came to close for comfort, but they did it! Lots of firewood, which we can’t really use because we are not there in the winter months.
    I love the one second video thingy! I might give it a try!

    Wow ā€¦ that one second a day app is really cool. Not one day alike! I have never seen a basket at Walmart or anywhere with a tag. Iā€™m not into conspiracies, but!!! :))

    Alan – I had not heard about the app 1sec. I love it! I was grinning through the whole slide show – your personality shines through like a beacon!

    Sorry about the tree, but it looks like it is time to be turned into a fabulous piece of furniture! When we lived in Ohio, the Amish would pay top dollar for cherry wood!

    And what’s up with the tracker on the basket? You gotta believe the cost is not justified?!?

    When we bought the house we’re living in now, about 4 yrs. ago there was a gigantic tree in the front yard not far from the front door. It was huge. It was starting to crack our driveway and was old so showing signs of dying so we had it cut down. It cost $4000. About a month ago we had another tree in the back cut down and that was $3000. I couldn’t believe how much it cost.

    Your cats look like out 2 cats šŸ™‚

    My family has played games since my kids were little.

    We’re getting our house painted on the 7th if the rain stops long enough.

    I’ve never heard of the app 1sec. I like it!

    Have a great weekend!

    I’m guessing the tree is gone by now. I am not surprised the rest of your furbabies are missing Ginger. Good volunteer gig. Some of those old board games look like collectibles. Good update.
