Waa, Waa, Waa…what a bunch of panty waist kids! I should have invited them both to come and watch me unload by myself...after they laughed and said they would like to see me unload alone when I got home.
The building will be 15’ x 30’ and will house the tractor, backhoe attachment, our wood pellets and the posthole digger. Actually I can’t wait to get it laid out and start setting the treated 6x6 posts and get the top ties on to resemble a building. It should be a pretty quick project once the posts are set and the ties are in place. Although I hated losing the old building and all the equipment that burned…we will have a much prettier building when we’re completed, that will actually compliment the other outbuildings on the farm.
Vick will again operate the DeWalt compound miter saw, cutting each and every board I place on the shed as usual. All I have to do is take a measurement for the next board and Vick cuts it immediately and delivers it to me to install. We’re a pretty slick and well oiled machine when we build together. Vick runs the compound miter, a jigsaw and the circular saw for rip cuts and is more than capable of making any cut needed. She never gets credit for the half of the work she performs, as if a woman isn’t capable or they simply don’t appear to believe she actually does all that. BUT SHE DOES. Just come sometime and watch her in action.
Anyway, after getting the truck unloaded…and while Vick was preparing dinner, I went out and trimmed some limbs from hanging over her garden at the end of the driveway and took the limbs to the trash pile. We went to fill the gas can and get some things from the grocery store before hanging it up for the day.
Today, we’ll wait for a lady that called Friday for two dozen eggs, wanting to pick them up this morning between ten and twelve. After she comes and gets her eggs, we’ll plot where the posts go for the tractor shed and I might drill the holes and fit the posts. We need to tie up the drooping branches on the plum tree too. When we tie them up, they will in time, grow that direction and stop drooping in the driveway.Once the tractor shed is up and finished, the only other job I have around here is to fix the leaky Bilco doors to stop water from coming in on the basement floor. Anything else is a tiny task when it comes up… Ahhh, sweet dreams of being done!
