Long time no see eh friends?
It’s been a rough couple of weeks, this one as well.
I kind of feel a little silly saying that on Memorial Day weekend though. Talk about rough. What some people did and sacrificed for our country. Their families as well. I don’t know if you have ever watched the movie “Saving Private Ryan” but how anyone could come away from that movie and not see things a little differently I don’t know.
So let’s dispense with the complaining shall we.
For hope remains………while company is true.
With the little time I have at the moment I’ll just do a little show and tell for this week.
Celebrated the Editor’s 50th birthday this weekend. It was a huge success. I tended bar, among other things which I really enjoyed. Would love to open a Hobbit bar someday.You know just like the house we’re building. It would be really cool. It would be fun to build.
The birthday celebration was a real blast though I have to admit. Lots of food, drink, and song. The Editor handled 50 really well. A couple of pictures.
A few other things: I had a new nest built into the Hobbit House over the last few days. It’s a long story but this nest has 4 eggs that are the same and one that is a completely different color. What’s up with that Sally H.!!!! Evolution. Another bird mother who is too lazy to sit on her eggs? We’ll see what develops over the next week.
Oh yeah, saved a turtle the other day. He/she was crossing the road and I wanted to make sure he/she didn’t get squashed. I put him on the other side in the grass. On the way back from where I was going I think the same turtle was in the middle of the road again. (I think the signal on his GPS must have went down.) Had to put the poor guy on suicide watch so I put him in the flatbed and dropped him into the pond at the Hobbit house. Would love to have him there that’s for sure. I know this sounds weird but I could have sworn I heard him say “Do you have a signal?” Weird right?
Grass is coming along over at the house as well. I’m thinking I should reseed it again soon. So it gets really thick on the roof at least. This way I won’t have to worry about erosion this winter.
Anyway, things aren’t going as planned. I might have to put a crane up this weekend over on 34th street. What a bummer. Maybe not, we’ll see.
If not I’m really going to try and finish the sheathing on the north side of the house. I think I could get it done in about 5-6 hours.
Have a great week!
