One Spot At A Time

that's all anyone can do.  You just have to keep focused on One Spot until it's finished and move to the next spot.  Before you know it work will be done.

This spot has been on my mind since the deer party we had a few weeks ago.  I used it for a fence post at The Run*A*Ranch.  I was ashamed the fence was not visible but it was doing its job.
For years this second "gate" beside the cattle guard could be opened to accommodate a wide load.
The school bus kept hitting it and other tragedies happened to this poor gate but it still kept the stock from wandering.
Not a Fortune Five Hundred fix but it's up again!
 Maybe this sign can now be seen and obeyed.
Around here I can measure my work only by the piles of brush...and that creates another job. The green is arriving in full force. One small job, one giant backache but I am grateful.  

Join the fun at Good Fences!

Gail, that gate has definitely seen it's better day, and what a job to get it back in place! Good job!

Isn't that the truth!? I can so relate to one spot/step at a time, and even a completed job creates another one. That is my life sister! It sure looks better though. Don't feel bad, everything around our place has character! :)
Thanks so much for your comment on my blog Gail - I think he's pretty magnificent too!! :)

Love its rustic look. It may all be a lot of work, but many look at your life style with envy, from the view of the rat pack side of the world. ;)

Jolly good fix on that gate! The signs stand out and full clear force too! Good luck! Don't work too hard!

Ida said...

Sounds like you did some hard work but the effort paid off. Hopefully people will follow your sign now.

Well, all the effort and the gate job is done, now on to the piles of debris. Job security, it never ends.
