Great.. Just me and the Beaver.

Last Saturday was the first day of Turkey hunting, so I loaded up my 20 ga shotgun and headed for the woods.

I heard allot of gobbling when I called, but none if the Gobblers would come my way. So wile I sat under a large Oak tree along side of the creek I saw a beaver swim towards the creek bank that I was sitting on. After he got out of the water I figured that he had seen me and swam away, but after a few minutes I heard something to my right. I looked over, and there he was siting on his tail looking at me with wondering eyes, and he wasn't about 16" away from me!!! I had seen a photo of a man that had been bit by a beaver, not wanting to find out how sharp his teeth were I scared him away with a quick jerk of my body. When he saw that he ran into the creek and splashed his tail, getting me all wet.

It is cool to see wild animals in their natural habitat, but that instance was a little to close for my liking.


What a MOVE!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry that I haven't added any new post's, but it has been a long and hard move back to BG.

The BIG move was about two weeks ago. Our friend Aron was able to get us a 24' Penske truck to move all the indoor stuff. With that size truck we thought we would get it all done in one lode, right...WRONG!!! First of all the truck was pretty tall and we didn't consider the height of the covered bridge...OOPS It got wedged inside the bridge, half of the truck was inside and the other half outside. So we wouldn't damage the bridge we had to deflate the tires in order to make the truck shorter so we could back the truck back out. PLAN B... We repaired the ford that went around the bridge so we could try to drive the truck AROUND the bridge. Thankfully it made it with out any problems.

Next was the task of loading the truck, we figured it would take about 4 hours, and that was at 4:00 pm. 6 Hours later (10:00) we FINALLY had the truck loaded and ready to go, and it was only 12:30 am when we go home. It is easy to say that every one agreed that we should wait until Later on in the morning to unload.

There was still allot of stuff left to get, and it took several trailer loads to get it all, and even while I am typing this post, we still have the tractor and grader blade still up there. Hopefully it will be down here by the end of this week.

Also I want to say thanks to all who helped us move, and I am sure all of you will be glad to here that Dad said that the next time we move we will hire it out...
