Back In Charge

Back In Charge

After the sad day came a day of work.   The things my daughter didn’t take will be either put away and given to Hospice.  There is a lot of baby things that my grandson has outgrown.   The porcupine problem has been solved.  We drove wire stakes and put chicken wire around the trees, hoping that the ones that have been stripped of their bark will somehow survive.  My new helper is coming to paint the well house and do some plumbing and carpenter repairs.  The roof man is coming to see about repairing the leaking roof.   I plan on playing bridge this afternoon and taking part of the day off from the work.  I baited two coon traps and will see if I catch a coon.  My ranch cat has returned to the house, now that the dog is gone.  The cat is a necessity on a ranch because the mice and rats eat the wiring on the vehicles.  A cat is a much cheaper alternative than rewiring a vehicle.  I learned that lesson the hard way years ago when my Mercedes and pickup had to be rewired.  It was an expensive lesson as are most lessons, costly either emotionally or financially.
