In an effort to save their backs, E and TW decided to share in the cost of a wood splitter.. E picked it up and brought it over yesterday. It weighs 450 pounds. It is a 20 ton gas-powered hydraulic log splitter. It would have been ironic if E destroyed his back just bringing it over to the island…But all is well. We have the splitter here and E spent the morning putting it together. Of course,  then he had to give it a try… may 17 028

Couple of housekeeping matters to mention..

We had our last fire (of the winter?) on May 4th. First Bar B Que dinner on the deck was May 15th. We sat out until 11:30, no bugs, very mild… It was a lovely evening with a visit  by a dozen otter beneath the deck just before dark.                              May 14th I planted the window boxes with blue and white petunias. may 17 043

They aren’t actually window boxes as much as hanging over a crevasse boxes. aug 5 110Today, the 17th, the hummingbirds have vanished from the perch… who took them?????
