A random couple weekends…

I’ve had a weird few weeks.  I was in the hospital for a few days with an infection – all better now.  Previously, I had an adventure in the north 40.  Bob and I were out doing firewood.  I took down half a dozen trees, skidding them over to the firewood pile.  On the second trip, a sinkhole mysteriously opened in the ground and Bob sank.  Col stopped by and I enlisted his aide but to no avail; it took Josée and me a good hour to get Bob extricated.  Last weekend, I worked on re-finishing some old benches.  They were in rough shape but I stripped them down, repainted the iron legs and re-did the slats.  I haven’t finished the yellow one yet but the blue one is up in the pet cemetery so I can sit in comfort as I remember Monty and Jack.  Maybe one day I’ll join them there!

Last Thursday, I came home and heard a strange noise.  It didn’t sound like Tegan.  I looked outside and there was a pink pot-bellied pig, playing with Tegan and eating some grass!!  A long story short, her name is Petal and she is about five months old.  She belonged to someone who lives just down the road but for a variety of reasons is no longer able to care for her.  Josée and I decided to adopt her so now we are the new owners of a pink pot-belly!   She is really cute, very fun and has a different personality from Monty.

Finally, I had a great breakfast at Atlas and decided to take a close of my delicious breakfast!  This weekend, more benches, welding some bucket hooks on the tractor, another bonfire and maybe a meal out.  Oh, I have to remember to pay my taxes too!

    Wow! what a picture of Bob.. The Benches look excellent, can’t wait to have a sit and a chat soon.

  2. Lovely post Ben. I like what you’ve done withe the benches. They sure look so much better now that when they sat in front of the garage. Petal seems to have made a hit with everyone who’s met her. I know she will be very happy with you guys.
