Sorry folks I missed Sunday reading and I didn't get a good post up today either. We had a death in the family and the funeral was this weekend which kinda put a damper on Thanksgiving and then yesterday I wrenched my right shoulder and neck putting away the last of the machinery for Winter after the last hay hauling expedition.
I am finding it very hard to actually type right now, it doesn't effect working just typing for some reason. I guess it is the angle and the particular muscle that got wrenched.
I also began Winter cleanout today. Temps are scheduled to go into the low 20's over night and got down below 30 last night so I know my poking around will be dangerous vermin free!!! Ya those snakes and spiders think they are all that when it comes to venom but a little cold snap shows em exactly who is the real top of the food chain around here.
My first target is an outbuilding that has been used as a old item dump for over 50 years. I am sorting stuff into useable items, non-useable and burnable/not burnable and scrap metal. I also found some neat gems including a mortar crate dated 1952 which contained some old picnic gear the wife grabbed up and an old coleman stove that I will take a picture of and have Stephen ID for me. I found an old disintegrating cardboard box that contained all my ROTC insignia and my first butter bars believe it or not. I thought they were gone forever but I remembered actually putting them on the cardboard backing they were still attached to in the box some mumble-mumble 20 something years ago. A flyfishing rod and a couple of cane poles still in their original wrappings unopened. An old trolling motor that still works and a 10 lb. brick of lead.
Anyway I am halfway finished with target one and already have more storage area than I know what to do with. I see more shelves being built this Winter and a large number of pots and gardening gear being moved out of my workshop where Mrs. PP keeps dumping it.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
