Have you ever cut down a tree! My willow tree was splitting so I had to cut it down! They’re building a subdivision on two sides of me and putting up a vinyl fence. If the tree split after they put up the fence, it would smash the vinyl fence! One big branch split off already and hit my snowmobile trailer. Fortunately it just broke the plastic roof vent on the trailer. I have a chain saw with a 16″ bar on it and it was not big enough to cut all the way through the trunk. The guys building the subdivision allowed me to dispose of all the smaller limbs in their trash pile. I used our little dune buggy to drag all the limbs to the trash pile. That was a lot easier than trying to load them all up and haul them with the truck! After I cut the rest of it up a friend of mine came and picked up all the wood. He has a fire pit in his back yard and was glade to get the wood.

All I can say is, “Boy am I glade that’s done!”

Have You Ever Tried To Roll Up Barb Wire?

My wife thought I should share this with you. We live out in the farm land and they are building a subdivision on 2 sides of us. We own 1 acre on the corner. In the process of building the subdivision they have messed up our barb wire fence. They will be putting up a new vinyl fence so I’m taking down the barb wire fence and the metal post. Now, have you ever just tried to roll up barb wire? You know, like a rope or extension cord! It just doesn’t work too good for me to do that. The wire all wants to straighten back out and when it’s 160 plus feet long it just doesn’t work to well to just roll it up. I remembered seeing barb wire rolled onto a spool of sorts and I remembered what they kind of looked like so I built a spool out of 2 X 4’s to wind the wire on. First I just tried to roll the spool on the ground and that didn’t work very good. I decided I need something to put the spool on so I could spin the spool and wind the wire up. So, as you can see I built frame to hold the spool out of some old metal I had. The best part is that it worked out to where it hangs on the back of the dunebuggy at just the right hieght. It’s pretty easy to wind it up that way! My wife thought that was pretty ingenious.

It’ Time To Go Home!

Well our camping trips always come to an end and it’s time to pack everything up and go home. It’s time to leave this beautiful place and get back to our responbsibilities at home. We have a bunch of cats that allow us to take care of them. I’m sure they wonder where we disappeared to. (The cats are another story.) Anyway all the responsibilities of home are waiting! Oh, the lawn I’m sure needs mowed, bills paid, business to take care of so we can do this again real soon! All those things alow us to be able to come and spend the time camping where it’s beautiful.

My stepson came up and spent a couple days and had a ball fishing in his float tube. He came back to camp the first evening after spending a bunch of time fishing and ask what time it was? We told it was 9:20 PM and he said I thought it was only about 5:30 PM. Time just seems to slip away when you’re having fun! Thanks for coming up Ron!

The Way I Love To Celebrate My Brithday!

Hey it’s that time of the year again! Yea, it’s my birthday! So here I am setting at Herrick Reservoir outside of Cascade Idaho! My lovely wife Peggy, the Belly Dancer, is here with me. We just came back from a ride in our dunebuggy. That thing is a blast! Being up in the mountains on my birthday is a real treat for me. Besides that we get to stay for a few days.

Technology is a wonderful thing! Her I am in one of my favorite places and I’m writting this blog entry on my laptop. Not only that but I’m connected to the internet with my Mi-Fi card. I have my cell phone to receive or make calls. I think I’ve mentioned I sell real estate. So,  it’s great, I can be up here enjoying myself and still conduct business!  Life is Good!

Ouch! I Can’t Move My Thumb!

Have you ever had tendinitis in your thumb? It’s called De Quervain’s Tendinitis. I’ve just had to have what the doctor called a De Quervain’s release. They make a small incision at the base of the thumb and open up the sheath the tendon runs through. I have to wear this brace that is held on with ace bandages to keep you from moving your thumb for 10 days. You should try typing with this thing on! I tried a lot of things be fore we decided to do surgery. There’s a lot of article out there on the Internet that talks about De Quervain’s Tendinitis. I’m going to make this short since it’s hard to type. Here’s a link to an article aboutDe Quervain’s Tendinitis. The author does a very good job of explaining what De Quervain’s Tendinitis is, the possible causes, and treatment for De Quervain’s Tendinitis. I’d like to thank Steve A Madigan for writing such an informative article about De Quervain’s Tendinitis.
