July 1st

Thursday, July 2, 2009

We got a little bit more done today (nothing terribly exciting, mind you) after we put some more hay in the pasture. Cassandra decided to roll in this afternoon, instead of riding in her usual place on the back of the farm truck :o) Champ appeared to be somewhat confused by this.

The girls did not come down to supervise
our work this evening, but instead sent a duly designated representative (photo right*).

Taya did come down once to check on our progress (and make sure their appointee was fulfilling his duties). But since her favorite toy, the auger, was not there she left :o)

* I'm not quite sure what this little guy's fascination was, but he stayed perched on the fence wire for a good hour while we worked and actually turned and looked at me when I took his picture - isn't he cute? Oh, and just in case you're wondering about his name, it's from the Walt Disney movie, "The Rescuers".

We put stainless steel plates inside and out to splice the individual of 2x4's together down the sides; we had a little trouble with one or two of them because the wood was slightly warped (grrr).

Rickey pulled them together as close as he could using a scrap piece of 2x4. We'll leave them that way for a bit and wet the wood to pull them even closer.

That's all for now - thanks for staying with us all the way to "the end" :o)


  1. The dragonfly may have been digesting - when they eat they need to land...I guess it is like waiting 1/2 hour after eating to swim, they need to wait a bit to fly :)
    Glad you got so much done today!

  2. Aww, he is indeed cute, I quess he was very interested in what you guys were doing.
