I’m Back! Finally!

The hard drive on my laptop crashed a few weeks ago. Thank goodness that for some reason we decided to buy the extended warranty when we bought it. That is something we almost never do!

As my friend Mrs. Schmenkman would say… “That’s a kiss on the cheek from God!”

Unfortunately I hadn’t backed up many of my recent pictures so I lost a lot of good ones that I was planning to share.

So here are just a few things that have been happening here on The Hill.

One of our big white pines began dying a slow death so we made the sad decision to cut her down.

Until I got the bright idea to turn her into a bird feeding pole!

The squirrels approve!

Casey likes to squeeze himself into a box.

This big boy was stalking our pond. He sat in Neighbor Mike’s locust tree just watching for the longest time.

Speaking of Neighbor Mike, he got a lead on a big walnut tree that was going to be cut down so he got us permission to get the firewood. That’s what we worked on all day yesterday. The thing was covered in various types of vines. Right now we’re praying that none of them were poison ivy!

Tomorrow we’ll go on a Sunday Stroll.

    I didn’t know you were out of comission, just thought you were consumed by mulch and spring yard work!!!
    How do you get food up in that cute new feeder? You are a wonder dog!
    If it fits, it sits!
    That’s a whole lot of winter heat in a trailer!
