August 3 ~ Friday ~ RAIN to cloudy/sprink-ly.
More rain during the night AND we are awakened at midnight by the BEEP...BEEP...BEEP of the fridge notifying us of*** low battery***so Jack trudged out to turn on the portable generator since the camper one can’t start due to ***low battery***letting that run awhile to recharge the camper. Finally, we returned to sleep...to be awakened again...at 5am...by the BEEP...BEEP...BEEP of the fridge notifying us of***low battery. I’m thinking I see a trend here...with something to do with the portable generator being plugged in???
Coffee time for Kim, then he starts in again widening the pad/road and is doing a very good job! He charges $80/hour...not bad...would have to pay a lot more to hire someone else. His little excavator ...turquoise/purple ...does quite a task of moving logs and tree roots/stumps. By the end of the day the road is at least 6 feet wider, extending from the pad on down around a tree where a trailer can also be parked. He has also moved all of the logs just north of our land where we can cut them up as we need. The owner of the property just north of us hasn’t been here in years so don’t think it’ll be a problem. And, if Kim...or Mark...need firewood this winter they are welcome to take whatever they need.
Jack went on the 4 wheeler to the junction for money to pay Kim and to buy ‘barn spray’...insect killer...for those pesky little flying things. Must be the temp...or maybe a million just hatched...WHATEVER...they are all over the place. IT’S WAR!
