probably building fence -- as long as the sheep don't get out again. At least they aren't goats.

Thank you for sharing, so sorry for your loss! Puts things in perspective during these crazy days!

Normally we'd be doing a lot of antique picking and selling this weekend but not much of that going on these days. Got the lawn mowed today as well as a bunch of other little stuff around the house. Wife and I are thinking about doing a road trip up to the Black River Falls area. We're thinking that might be a good place to pick up a chunk of land for retirement.

If nothing else we'll hang around here and eat good food...same thing we've been doing for the last couple months.

Heading 150 miles away to decorate my mother's and uncles and aunt's graves. Next head to a great friend's grave 20 miles down the road where I will plant some Buffalograss. Visit with cousin and brother and family. Dropping off 20 beaver carcasses and 2 five gal. buckets of muskrat carcasses (all frozen) on the way through to a fellow by Omaha who makes coyote bait and lure commercially . Turn around and head home. Recoup the next day -- weed control in son's garden.

Recovering from hernia surgery first off and going over to the cemetery in town to pay my respects to those who went on before and the service men and women.
I wish I could go visit my parents graves but I'm not sure I could handle the driving that would require and the out of state trip.
Enjoy your day and Stay Safe out there even if you don't want to and Thank a Veteran or current service person for their service !
Allan

My boss gave us Friday and Monday off... So a 4 day weekend for me. Been a while since I had that much time off. Pretty nice.

Plenty to do around the house... I did get the mowing done Wednesday, just in time for more rain. And I'm sure there will be something to do out at the ranch.

But right now it's an early Saturday morning and it isn't raining at the moment... So I believe the flintlock and I will head to the squirrel woods.

Need to grind about 800 # of base materials,
work on some powder horns and accessories I am making for a friend that helps with our business,
then mow 4 acres around and trim if the weather holds up. That will shoot a couple of days pretty quick.
