Meet Athena

There is a new dog at the farm and her name is Athena.  Roxie wasn’t happy being out numbered by cats so Athena was found and George and Lisa took her in.  She is about 10 weeks old and is in pretty good shape for being abandoned.  Roxie loved her right away!  Welcome Athena!

Happy Birthday America!

Happy 4th of July!  We are celebrating America’s birthday today at the grand old aga of 242 years old.  I have to wonder how our forefathers would think about the way the country has gone.  We do live in a great country and we are still home of the free and the brave.  On this July 4th I hope you all have a wonderful day.  Happy 4th of July!

The Walk Thru

The garage aka GarGe now has a covered walk thru so if it is raining or snowing George and Lisa will stay dry going from the house to the garage or the garage to the house.  An area was enclosed with a roof that was laid on top of the walls created by the garage.  It has been a work in progress that is now completed.

The Trees Are Gone

The rest of the Ash trees came down yesterday after a couple of days off due to rain.  The scary one to be taken down was right by the RV.  There was only one direction the tree could fall where it would not damage anything and because they were pros it all went as planned.  The island of trees between the RV and the Crafty Collage are gone too.  Tim has taken some great pics to show the trees and the progress of removing them.

And a The Trees Came Down!

George decided to have all the Ash trees removed from the farm because of the Ash Beetle that the trees attracts.  The ash beetle, a borer, cans damaged and kills ash trees around the north and central USA since 2009 and worst damaged is expected through 2019.  Once the trees are infested they must be taken down and quarantined.  There were a few trees around the RV that was affected so on Monday the trees came down.

The GarGe Is Really Coming Along

More Done On The Garage

It has been brought to my attention that I have an issue with my garage or my Chicago slang “GarGe” which I now kind of like but is not true.  My iPad, in which I write most of my blogs, has a mind of its own and I do not always re read my blog especially when I am in a hurry.  Since my mistake has been pointed out I will try to be more careful however I am now officially naming the new garage GarGe! They did make some great progress on the garage aka GarGe.  The rafters are up and the roof is going on.  Nice job on the progress of the GarGe!
