More work





It was remarkably warm, still and beautiful here today. These October days are a delight.


I took advantage of the nice-nice to do some work-work.


Fence work, stock tank work, well maintenance work.


Late this afternoon I was just about out of juice but had enough left to shift 120 twenty-foot joints of 1.5 inch water well pipe.


That tuckered me out.


Now that I've established an excuse...


This will be an exceedingly short post.


With a few pictures.


And not a lot else.


Except road killed pork-queue-pines.


It just don't get no more lame.

  1. A picture is worth a thousand words. And those are some pretty nice photos.

    Nothing lame here!

    1. I was feeling a bit sorry for myself for feeling small and wimpy when I threw down that sentence. I know that after all the physical turmoil my carcass has been through over the last 3-4 months it's going to take time to get back up and in battery, but I want it now! :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting Sarge. Feel better! Myself and the dead porcupines are pulling for you!

  3. This Indian Summer is worth relishing I do so on my daily drives out to the patch.

    1. Kind of a reflection on how well the regional ecosystem is doing. You just so rarely see porcupines and it's rarer still to see them road killed south of town. Those two got splatted at nearly the same spot only about three days apart. In other words, there are scads of porcupines. Same with coyotes; it's unheard of around here to have one roadkilled but it's been happening all summer. Scads of coyotes. Might have to buy more boolets.

  5. I wonder why the porcupine was carrying a hammer?

    1. I think he was gonna break out the lights running up and down the road and disturbing his nocturnal meanderings. Or he might possibly have wanted it in the image to provide some kind of reference scale. You never know with porcupines.

  6. Do what you can, it’ll still be there tomorrow. Fence is always first! Sigh...

  7. I saw a coyote that had been smucked outside of Baraboo this week. I don't see that very often. In my 58 years I have only seen 3 porkies in the wild. You can shoot all of them, with my blessing.

    1. Best of my recollection I've only ever seen one live one in the wild. I know the dogs see them from time to time; they 'member for about 5 years then it's back to the vet for quill removal...

  8. I meant you can shoot all the coyotes. I have nothing against porkies.
