LIFE IN THE FAST LANE

Life has been so overwhelming around here lately that I don’t even know what to post on first so today you are getting a hodge podge of information with not a lot of details.  I am hoping that in the next couple of weeks I will have time to go back and give the stories that go with these picture.

We spent Mothers Day at the Mondeaux Dam.  There is never a dull moment with these four monkeys.

There has been a lot of sickness in our household. Luckily only one hospitalization.

One of the flu victims happened to be the groom, on the wedding day.

There was a hall to decorate.  It took two and a half days and lots of wonderful helpers,  and it was beautiful.

Trips to the airport to pick people up and take them back.

Oh yeah, and they decided to come and start tearing the barn down.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A LOG HAULER

OK so I don’t have a whole day but I did ride along for a trip to the mill.

We left home at 4 in the afternoon and returned home about 8 in the evening.

You get to the mill and then you wait in line to get unloaded by one of these big guys.

This little train keeps going into the yard and taking wood back to the mill.

After being unloaded, Lumberjack had to sweep the trailer off.  He does know how to use a broom!

There is lots of wood at the mill.

Rows and rows and rows, as far as you can see.

Then there’s this sign when you are leaving the yard.  “IS YOUR BOOM DOWN?”

I guess if you got a boom you better put it down.
