a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

The Second Half Of Sunday...

The front was moving in and we had to grab our jackets.
The nice thing about being sent to the house was I found a crew.
Many of our tornado and ice storm downed cedars were used for posts.
The extended crew follows the fence line, working.
Hubby in the lead, son-in-law, Luke, and daughter, Melissa all working on the main crew.  Back at the house, Maria was doing nurse homework and laundry, Zander was playing with Marcy, Bev was cleaning my house and Andrew was helping her.  On the hill, the younger crew moved faster and left me time for photos.
Stretching that last length on the bottom wire
Melissa and her dad make a good team.
Melissa and me...exhausted
Thanks to the surprise extended crew, I got to go on an adventure with Jake. To Luke, Melissa, and Andrew, thank you,until you are better paid.  This two day sprint could not have been done without all your help.  Just two more runs down that suicide hill and we will be ready to move those cattle.

I'm glad you got help on time. Sometimes company does come in handy. What happened with that front? Did it bring rain?

Looks like they ripped through getting a nice stretch of fence fixed. That's very cool.

Boy I could use a crew like that here. I've got some fence badly needing repair. I imagine it will not get done until summer.

Wow, both posts have made me tired. That's a lot of work. Farms ARE work work work. But they are worth it.

Nothing like finding younger, stronger arms and legs to help get a job done. Ahhh !! to think we were once those younger stronger helpers to someone !!!!
Have a blessed tomorrow.
