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…
I was up in the garden ….
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.
At this point it kind of looks we are
digging a grave
