Coffee is ready, on my second cup. Still dark outside. Fence guy coming today. Will probably take down giant old oak with rotten streak down the trunk first. It’s right up against the old fence and would be against the new fence. It’s leaning towards the road. Someday it will fall, it would take out my fence, block the road, and take out neighbors fence. So it’s coming down before new fence goes up.

Tonight starts our Toys for Tots week, culminating in distribution on Saturday. Sorting and counting tonight.
170 families signed up, so this will be a quick effort this year. We typically have 300-400 families.

Afternoon COFFEE TIME! My house smells like HOMEMADE Rolls, BREAD and Cinnamon Rolls even though none of it turned out like it was suppose to . I know I did something wrong seeing how the dough didn't raise like it was suppose to but I just figure out what

Good morning! Coffee is ready!

It’s been a busy couple of days here! I decided to hire a fencing crew to fence in the front field. In TWO DAYS they did what would have taken me two months to do. These guys swarmed the fence like poking a fire ant hill with a stick. Professionals of their trade, it was educational to me, just watching.

Remember that big oak with the rotten streak, right on the fence line? It was in worse shape than I thought, it was hollow and so rotten that it broke off before he finished sawing it down.

Carson was delighted to have new friends and galloped up to meet them. These men only saw a giant black dog rushing at them, jumped back in the trucks and slammed the doors! :lol: :lol::lol: It didn’t take long for Carson to win them over.

The Anatolians were another story. They stood on their side of the fence, across the driveway, hating on the fence crew. If they weren’t barking at the men, they were glaring at the intruders, looking very mean. I warned the crew, not to approach their fence or even directly look at them.

Pictures!

These men worked after dark! They wore headlights and turned trucks on fence with lights on. They finished up at 8:00 last night. I’ll get more pictures today. I’ve got ryegrass seed to sow on the bare bulldozed ground, going to rain tonight, so that will be good.
