There’s been a lot going on around here at the rental home, and at our country home.
We’ve been totally breaking down the raised garden beds at the rental home. The wood was separated into two piles...the good pile (which we gave to a neighbor, and the bad pile (wood no longer of use, needing to go to the dump). To save time, and our backs, we rented a Bobcat to breakdown and spread the soil, compost, and peat throughout the side yard. Tank, our son, offered to run the Bobcat to make things a little easier on us old folks (he loves being a smart a$$). Granted, we rented the Bobcat for the entire weekend; our boy had the job done in less than 45 minutes. This gave us the opportunity to return the Bobcat early, and not beat our bodies up from the constant jerking and bobbing back and forth.
The moving process has begun!!! We rented a large enclosed trailer for two weekends to move all of my garden stuff, the garage with all the tools, and equipment. Then we started working on moving our household items (the small stuff). The last Saturday of this month a local moving company will come in and move all the furniture, and the real heavy items.
Tomorrow, I’ll be back out at our country home to receive some new appliances, and have a satellite installed for TV/internet access. On Wednesday we’re having a tornado shelter installed on our property. My plans are to use the shelter as a root cellar for harvested vegetables (onions, potatoes) when we’re not using it for tornadoes. I still need to complete research to make sure the tornado shelter will be cool enough here in Oklahoma for certain vegetables and fruit.
Because there were so many foot prints of wildlife around our new home, Bulldog Man and I setup a few game cams, and we wish to share with you some of the pictures.
Now I know a few of you will get a kick out of this next picture. It’s the new roller skate designed specifically for trucks……check it out……
I know I’m being a smart ____ _____ _____!!!!
I’ll be in and out of Blogger while we finish moving into our new place, and get setup. Thank you for being patient while this happens.
