I am officially off work for a while now…let the time off begin! I am not really sure how long it will last since I may have the chance to go in to work extra and get a few more  paychecks in the bank….

Friday was a bit of a busy day. It was a day to get caught up on some paperwork and do some arranging, cleaning, shredding and make a trash run. I did the recycling last week so that was already out of the way. Saturday…

Didn’t sleep very well last night. You know that trouble you have getting a good night’s sleep when you are in a hotel or a new place. On top of that I heard a damn dog barking – even without my hearing aids in….

Today I started moving stuff into my apartment. I got cut short on time a little bit because of the heat. I also had to take my truck in to get some brake work done on it. Grinding seems to have developed in the…

Trees. Big Trees.


I have spent the best part of the last two weeks with a few co-workers identifying hazard trees in campgrounds. We have looked at hundreds of trees and have found signs of disease while wandering through the woods dodging devil’s club and downed giants – climbing over,…

(I started this post on March 19th and was too busy to finish it) It has been a great time the last few days. Angie and Alexis came out to visit and we have been all over the place. The first few days we…

Good to be Home!


I got on the road for the last hour home yesterday morning. Man, it is soooo relaxing to be home. I slept mighty well last night. No more worries about the weather keeping me from getting back on time to do take care of…
