Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Let it Snow!

I am ready! There are 4 of these piles ready for light off. All I need is about 3 to 4 inches of snow to ensure the blaze doesn't spread.

If you see on the national news that the temperature in Woodlands Country rose unexpectedly by 5 degrees centrigrade, that's me and my match!

Who's going to bring the marshmellows and 30 foot weiner stick?

The land clearing progresses with stumps now being popped the good old fashioned way with a pick and muscle power. After 2 years dead in the ground, most are coming out easily. The ones that don't, well, they can wait until next year. Us retired guys aren't in that big a hurry.

Brooklynn keeps pulling sticks down as I toss them up. Eventually she gets tired, and I can keep ahead of her.

Hunting is still on the back burner as it's too warm to hang meat. It appears we are getting summer in October. Go figure!
Oh well, there is still lots to keep us old guys busy! Today, I think that I will saddle up Tucker and see if she is still snarly. Hopefully, not.

It's been a while since I was "Carded" but it still feels good when someone tells me "oh, really, you don't look that old". (Only my hair dresser and I know !!!) hahha

The marshmallow and wiener roast sounds pretty good to me. Of course you know I don't like cold weather so I'll hang out in the kitchen while you do all the roasting :-)

Not trying to get on your bad side Ian...but instead of you looking so young, could it be that a certain 16 year old young lady might need glasses? Sorry to pop your bubble ole chap.

Sounds like all is well in paradise! How did the ride go? I am ready to sit around the bonfire with you.

Yea the weather is upside down. We also have a very warm october. Love the sun on the colored leaves but it's a the wrong way.
