Loaded up that pile of wood I have for my friend yesterday, left the house about 1115 today to take it to him. Everything was going great until traffic came to a complete stand still just past Mullinex on HWY 16. Brush fire. We were stopped there about half an hour.
Finally got to my friends house and unloaded the wood. Maybe thatâ€™s one tire he wonâ€™t have to burn to stay warm. Left his place and went the back way to Mullinex to HWY 16. Figured all the hubbub should have been over by then. Wrong! Got caught in the traffic jam going the other way.
But eventually I got back home and have been â€œputteringâ€ around since. Put my shorts back on and went down and trimmed that Sycamore tree cause it was getting to where the meter-person wouldnâ€™t be able to see our electric meters. And itâ€™s spreading out into the yard. In our drainage field. No telling what the hell itâ€™s doing to that. I may have to just pull the whole thing out. Another couple of years will tell.
Took the Dog for a walk around the back 40. Vegitation is looking thick back there! Trimmed some of the blackberry bushes trying to enroach on the path/trail we use. (Probably should have worn pants for that.)
Practiced flying my drone some more. Got some good video going over the top of the house. Didnâ€™t crash into anything even once; unless you count hard landings. Need to learn not to be so heavy handed on the controls though. Those crazy tilts in the video can make one dizzy.
And that is it for today. SWMBO is home on time again and she finished out the last Harry Potter movie with me.
