My Lucky Day!

Today has been a very good day. Look what the mailman brought me!

My $1 check as promised as a refund on our closing when we sold our house in Las Vegas. Now I can go get my lottery ticket and win millions!

Plus, I keep getting emails saying I will get one half of a huge multi-million dollar payout for helping some poor "feriner" process a check! I keep telling them I don't have a bank account, but will go into a bank and cash it for them! Waiting to hear back, and mentally spending my money already!

In other good news, I sold my first log carrier on Etsy! A repeat customer (also my first!) bought this map print carrier for a birthday gift!

This afternoon, I went and retrieved some of the firewood Stud Muffin and I cut yesterday from a tree that uprooted and fell across the road.

This is only the top of the tree. We have most of the trunk yet to cut, but did get the road cleared again.

We have a new plan for getting rid of the beavers, which entails skewering the dams with PVC pipe, below the water level, to get the water draining again. Something like this.

Locals here say the when the beavers can't stop the water flowing by building the dam higher, supposedly they will go elsewhere. We'll see!

Dinner is in the oven. Barbeque pork chops and cornbread. Perfect for a cold blustery night!

So it's Beavers - 1, Humans - 0 at this point?

Angie and Marmy~ Yes, the beavers are winning at this point. But I will prevail! And when I do, I'm sending the carcass and all the baby carcasses across the Big Pond to live with Marmy and her chickens!

Thank you both for your concern!
