Under Construction

Tuff Tom says.....

Making the turkey today. Will bone it, chill it, and reheat in gravy tomorrow. That cuts down....marginally...on the madness.

Meanwhile, the back porch is also under construction, and a darned good thing. We wanted to use the existing wall and build around it but when Alan started to work on it, it practically fell off the house. 

Nothing left of it. It's a wonder it didn't fall off on someone's head! So he built a whole new wall on two sides, and caulked and painted and it is gorgeous.

Now the guys are off getting wiring to put an outlet out there and I am making applesauce. And Liz is going to be cooking for her in-laws here too, so, yeah....it's a madhouse.

Just what any woman needs...construction and skirt work.....all in the same place.

Odd, isn't it? How retirement bucket lists involve so much hard work.

Linda, it will end with a good meal and a much needed improvement to a porch, which was a mess and apparently dangerous, but dang!

TenMile, seriously! Doesn't feel like we have slowed down much. Just doing different stuff.

Linda, thanks. He belongs to the kids. I just love him and his ladies. He talks in a gentle, harmonious tone, displays his fluffiness whenever you go near him, and yet is as gentle as a kitty. I went right in the pen to take pictures and he just fluffed around me and chortled and giggled. Who knew you could fall in love with a turkey? Hope you and Terril have a wonderful holiday
