Here’s one from our former home, taken eight years ago. I miss the place sometimes and dreamt some about it after we moved (twenty years of living there after all), but I imagine the new owners have settled in nicely.

I hope they appreciate the arbor upon which these roses grow, built ultimately in a traditional Western style – though we were thinking about a Japanese style gateway arch – by local craftsman Henry Hotkowski. It will probably stand forever, as will the deck he built for us there.

Beautiful car to be sure, but there are a few other things I might like to do with an extra $80K or so.

Red and Rock in action; Red (foreground) seems to be more tuned in to Earl’s direction, and also seems to be the harder worker of the pair.

After a tree is felled (in the back), it’s cut up into sections and dragged over and on to the skidder. Note the uneven cut on the log; Earl had to go full old school – cutting with an ax – after his chainsaw hung up before the tree fell.
