Another Trip To The Cabin


Saturday, April 12, Ed and I loaded up our shotguns and turkey calls and headed out for the cabin. This time we also pulled the mower, not to mow with, but to pull the wagon full of dirt we wanted to use to fill in the boggy spots in the yard. Upon arrival we decided to hunt for an hour and a half first - then return to make yard improvements. We found no turkeys - but we had just as much fun. Plus, guess what? We didn't have the job of plucking and cleaning and cutting th meat from the turkey either. (Laugh A Little, will you?) You know how it is...when you aren't successful at something you make excuses, so there!

After we loaded one trailer full of dirt and scattered it, Ed said something like, "Fred, that's all the joy I want for today! One of my first rules for cabin visitors is that whatever they do there they MUST enjoy it...so I asked Ed if he would assist me by just standing by to see that the house didn't fall while I worked on sturdying the underpinning. I managed toget the floor jacked up a little more. Now I'm getting closer all the time to getting the foundation sure! Maybe my next visitor will enjoy crawling around on his back and helping level the floor!?! Ya think?
