Odds and Ends

Mr. Bruce is pretty much hating Apple right now. Since he is my blog technician, he is the one that has to deal with all the quirks, weirdness, and limitations we run into with my iPad on a regular basis. I have loads of pictures to share with you, and the iPad won't let me drop them to my photo library. So I am going to show you some older stuff before Bruce has to dump all my pics to the big computer, and they won't be available to me when I blog from the iPad.

We had a stretch of cool rainy weather a few weeks ago, which brought some nice photo opps.

It was cool enough one morning when I got to work, that I snapped this picture of the grass/leaves/hay pile, where our townsfolk drop their yard waste. It was just steaming away! That compost can get plenty warm when it is breaking down.

Just a week or two of very warm weather, and all this snow is gone from the Crazy Mountains. Thankfully, it was a manageable amount of run-off this year, and nobody was troubled with high water problems.

Sweet little Declan,being good at work as usual.

There is a BIG mud puddle right next to my little scale house, and these 2 flew in and bobbed around for awhile to keep Declan and I entertained one stormy day a few weeks ago.

 

There is a cement pad about 30 yards away from the scale house. One morning shortly after I got to work, these 2 carpenters showed up and got to work. A few of the Rural Firemen came and went, but these 2 carpenters were the fastest I have ever seen!

 

They had this structure knocked out in just over 3 hours.

The next day, it was a par-tay!

 

It turns out, this was a training module for the Rural Firefighters.

 

 

This is what was left the next morning.

Then they brought the back-hoe over, and knocked the whole works down, and hauled it to the transfer station to be taken to the landfill. At first I thought gosh, what a waste. But if it will help the fireman learn enough to save even one structure (not to mention maybe someone's life) then the whole exercise was certainly worthwhile!

Hopefully, Bruce will be able to remedy all the iPad issues, and I will have a batch of pics from the cabin and other stuff next week!

TTFN,

Teresa 🙂
