Bribery and Fencing

Well, I have stooped to bribery to get some fences done. Yes, I know, it’s not a good thing, unless you like waffles.

That’s what the price of being the saw-man on this fencing project requires before he will assist me in rebuilding/repairing our front pasture fence. You know how obsessed I am with getting those fences done this year. The part we are repairing is 30+ years old so I would say it’s about time. It’s a good thing April isn’t an escape artist, but we would like to get her a companion and that will require a sturdier fence than we now have.

So I took a couple of days off to work on it. Maybe not the way most people would like to spend their vacation time, but for me its great. So here are some photos I took:

Front fence & April

This was taken in March 2018. The black walnut tree which was cut down behind April and the fence needing repair in front of her.

Tractor & Fence
Walnut tree is gone, but fence still needs repairing

Now for this week.

Fence as of this morning
Had the boss move his tractor so we could begin.


This is a shot from the front porch but can’t get a good look at the fence with all the stuff in front of it.

The boss on his mower. It would make a good bronze. What do you think?
Getting there. A little section done
Now for Kinzie the inspector.
This doesn’t look very good, as it’s the part scheduled for demo and repair tomorrow.

Now comes the hard part tomorrow.  I have to remove the next two posts and replace them then continue the fence along until just past the water trough.

Hope I can get out of bed in the morning. I’m too dang old for this stuff. I have Excedrin, so I’m good. I wonder if tomorrow will cost me more waffles? Maybe for dinner as I have class in the morning, then working on the fence in the afternoon. The boss will be playing with his tractor and hopefully getting some pastures mowed.

Stay tune for more fun stuff tomorrow.

Annie, the waffle maker.
