I'm just LOGging back in to tie up some loose ends. To show another view of yesterday's giant creek-log that only a few days before had been a tree.
This is from the other direction, as I headed to town on Sunday. You can see the claw marks from the heavy equipment that lifted the log over the bridge. At least I HOPE that's what made the claw marks! You can see the future journey of our twisted friend. It will take a lot of water. I imagine this log will spin around and get caught several times on the bank, taking more than one flood to make it down to the river. When the weather warms up, it will provide shelter for the little fish and crawdads between floods.
In other closures... The Pony held steady with his ear infection for two days. Since the initial feel-better after one dose of his ear drops, he plateaued for two days. But by golly, right at the 48-hour mark he perked up, and said his ear felt a LOT better. The magic two-day window of antibiotics! In fact, he changed his morning mind about not feeling well enough to ride along and pick up pizza for our lupper (lunch/supper).
A-Cad has been paid off! I mailed the final payment last week. Now I'm sure A-Cad will start falling apart and require repairs. That's usually how it goes.
Farmer H's innards seem to have returned to normal after his gallbladder surgery on Nov 19. He is having a test for his shoulder pain on Tuesday morning. That throws off our casino schedule. But we can still go, because his Cancer Girlfriend doesn't have an appointment this week.
My Christmas shopping has just begun, and I anticipate many a skirmish, or even a small war with FedEx.
More news as it develops.
