 I must apologize for the lack of blog posts. True bloggers are writers, making regular posts. We have been busy doing, at least to the best of our ability. Whew, we sure aren't spring chickens anymore. Tho, we do have chickens around us...

 My last update was about our butt bulge, well we brought in loggers to eliminate the danger of trees falling on the house, and/or us and to harvest the timber.

They brought in the heavy equipment....

and went to work. These were some good guys from Wilkes County, and I enjoyed "watching" them work.

One morning when I went out I didn't know if a raccoon had visited during the night, or a group of hobos.... whoever it was had went though the food on the loggers work truck.

 They did a great job, and it wasn't easy work. It is exceptionally hilly behind the house, as challenging as logging in the mountains I was told. There was a lot of timber, even with cutting off a lot of the butt cuts because of the rot. Watching them take down the tricky trees  was especially suspenseful, entertaining and educational.

 The trees were old (big) and plentiful. This was the second highest dollar per acre job they had cut.

 So the loggers came and went. The equipment hauled away and the job site cleaned up and smoothed out (somewhat).
 An area was set aside for a small garden and the rest sown in grass seed.
Our NOW sunrise goes great with coffee.....
