The office is coming along! Bruiser guarding the door way

Yesterday Bruisers Mentor showed up to the Railway. A Tractor. Hey, we all need mentors. For Bruiser it’s John….. Deere. And that wonderful backhoe! Bruiser sat there in wonderment. Of course he was stopped from too close of an inspection. Nothing like having oddball huge metal parts sitting around.

What the hell is that?

Oh! That is one big digger

The Pooch pearch

We found the pipe!

We were digging up a water pipe that is damaged. SOMEPLACE! The area now looks like a huge ground hog has been through the railway now. Poor George.. Poor poor George, he so kindly offers to help, since he is the one that put the pipes in and knows where they are.

Mud!

What?

This is the BEST EVER!

The weather here was a beautiful 60 degrees, and even though my back is killing me.. yes from holding the camera! I can not think of a better way to spend a fool’s spring day!

The book matched split Pine boards are slowly coming along!

    Looks great. Keep going. Short term pain long term gain.

    Hmmm, George seems to be doing a lot of work at a place he sold and retired from. Wonder if I can get the last owner of my house to help me remodel my master bath? Love the bookmatched walls.

      George is probably enjoying himself as he is not paying the bill for all the wonderful work being done on his old property.

      Lets just hope the Reedville tax accessor does not read WB. May not want to paint or finish off the outside too nicely.

    I like Bruiser’s leash anchor. Reminds of the days when gas stations gave you a rest room key with a BIG object on it so you wouldn’t walk away with their key. Of course everyone knew where you were going with that big key fob.

    By the way…is the new place safe from those king tides you get there? Would hate to see all your hard work get ruined.

    I like the pine wall coverings!

    Hey Matt, do you think the leash is strong enough? That’s one powerful dog, just look how he wrapped you around his finger (paw).

    Happy to see Bruiser is out 0f that jail cell and on a tether!
    How long will he be on probation?

    Would it have been easier and less of a disruption to get a ditch witch and bury new lines. It makes a smaller mess and I’m sure those lines are pretty old anyway. I’m full of suggestions to spend your $$$.

    Don’t you love people who Monday morning quarterback your decisions???

    Congratulations, looking great and a wonderful project. Now, if it is that warm, take a day off and go boating.
