Hi Folks,

As some of you may have noticed, I haven't been very active here in a while. Covid 19 caused my paycheck to lower to only 60% so I found ways to make ends meet. here are a few pictures of some of the things I did; Doggy feeders from live edge walnut slabs, Costco plastic shed assembly, privacy fence with lattice work and I also managed to find time to stain my deck and fence and a planter I made back in 2003.
I am back to work as of today Aug. 3rd, but I can only travel if I have confirmed appointments. I am not complaining, some are worse of than me.
Cheers,

Dan

No moss growing on you! Glad you’ve used the extra time to get things done - best way to avoid the doom and gloom of a pandemic. Your projects look well done - is that a dog washing station or what?! Hope you get back to 100% soon...

I like that fence, I believe they call that a good neighbor fence because it looks great on both sides. Nice planter box also.

What is the stub out in the shed pad for?

Kept you off the streets and out of trouble. Nice work all round. I am also wondering about the plumbing. Looks like it's in the new shed. The circular construction is really nicely done, and the fence is really well done and very attractive. Time well spent. I am always surprised when I go East at the lack of fencing around properties. The first thing we did out here on the edge of the Mojave Desert was have a a new fence installed. Privacy walls close in would have been cheaper, but it makes clear lines on what you are obligated to maintain. Our back yard is almost one acre, and the work involved just in weeding is too much anymore.

Thanks Brian,

There are 2 different dog feeders one short for a small dog that I sold for $75 and a taller one for my best friend's Huskey that I gave him free of charge, after all, what are friends for ! BTW 42yrs of putting up with me, he introduced me to my better half.

Mark,

I have been back at work since November 2016, I had retired in 2017 and then bought a motor home and traveled across Canad all the way out to Vancouver Island. I stopped to me Cherryville Chuck and Daninvan on my way, I was very well received at both places and enjoyed my trip. I came back home through the Northern States and crossed into Canada at Thousand Islands . I saw Lake Superior, Huron, Erie, Ontario and the Rockies and the Sunshine Coast and my favorite place in Canada ; Tofino on Vancouver Island. I will live with those memories 'till they lay me down.

Thanks Herb,

The fence is only at the front of the house on each side because the rest of the property is surrounded with beautiful mature cedar hedges.

That's an amazing retirement trip Dan. I think you saw the best parts of North America and you know as well as me how great retirement can be. I did something similar when I retired in 2006. My friends that I used to sail with in Georgian Bay when I lived in Toronto had sailed to Trinidad and asked me to help them sail to Ireland. They were headed to the Mediterranean but wanted help crossing the Atlantic. I met them in Antigua and a month later we landed in Ireland. I flew back home and ended up going back to work for 6 more years until I retired again in 2012. And like you, I still live with my sailing trip memories.

Mark,

That sounds like an amazing adventure. I like to look at the Ocean but, I get nervous even on a ferry trip if I can't see the shore. LOL I like to have my 2 feet on the ground. Between the 2 movies that influenced me to these feelings, the original Titanic movie and Moby Dick, I'm not sure which one is worse but I love motor homes !

I really liked the idea of a motor home when a friend bought one and left from Ontario and travelled through every lower state over a 12 month period (just drove in and out of a couple to say he had been there). Then someone I worked with took me for a sail in Lake Ontario one day and I fell in love right away. A sailboat looks just like and has all the comforts of a motor home inside except you don't need to buy gas. I use to use $10/year in diesel fuel. However, now that I'm older I couldn’t do the 3300 nautical mile sail that I did but I could still drive a motor home if I had one. :)
