Spring Chores

We've been quite busy dealing with Mom's estate.  First some cows got in the yard and loafed for the better part of a week leaving their marks which all had to be picked up and moved to the field, and spread.  Then one of the spruces that was a live Christmas tree was blown over in the big wind and had to be cut down, cut up and carried away to appropriate places.  We had to make several runs to the dump and we're still not done.  Fortunately next week is spring clean up week for our dump community and I'll be able to get rid of a number of hazardous substances without penalty.  Had a good talk with the executrix and got permission to hire the neighbor boy to mow the lawn and to hire a fellow to replace some fence.  I am also going to be able to replace the vents I haven't already replaced.  Fortunate, also, we'll be able to hire somebody to come in to help wipe down all the walls.  Cat hair is still a problem. 

We've also been working on our own place, mowing, trimming and hauling out the debris left by this past winter.  Of course, even our rather paltry work schedule has demanded our attention.

All things considered there's been all too little time to shoot, load, or do anything that's worth recording here.  For that I'm heartily, and selfishly, sorry.
