Very cool _ I just had a lot of my questions answered... wondering about fisher'smom (duh - I knew she was a mom - a mom of FISHER, even!) but ther's always more to the story... I'm a mom of four-leggers only, but can imagine what it must feel like to see your kid blossom, to shine, to feel good about themselves, to take another step UP... blessings to you and yours!

THE NEW LAWN TRACTOR GETS HERE SATURDAY!!!!
WOO HOO!!!!!
We have been mowing 5 acres with a push mower for the last 2 years, since the other broke. We haven't been able to fix it. Albeit it's a very NICE, self propelled pushmower, it takes 3 days to mow the lawn, and I am the primary caregiver to our yard. I don't mind, it's exersise and a tan.... and I can't hear the kids fight. :) Just takes alot out of a week!!!
It also has a snowblower and a tank attachment, so we can do fertilizer and bug stuff more easily.
The "new" one (used but new to us!) is being given to us as a gift. A friend of the family stores cars and parts in our pole barn and seems to think he doesn't pay us enough. He is undergoing cancer treatment right now, and I can't think of a single thing nice enough to do for him.
DH says I don't have to mow the lawn anymore...... bonehead.

That's great Suzi! It's always nice when something is made a little easier.

My mom's operation this morning went well - in a stable condition in ICU (they're putting her in an induced coma for 2 days) - still waiting for the doctor to call my dad (apparently he's still operating) but it looks positive ! Looks like our prayers has been answered !

Oh Tanya, I'm so relieved to hear she came through the surgery OK. Please be sure and post an update when ya'll hear from the doctor. You must be worn out after this week and I'll bet you didn't sleep much last night. I hope all the news is good and you will have a long, restful sleep tonight.

I'm celebrating...a little. There was still some customer work in the shop that Buck didn't finish, so I'm finishing it. I've been working on staining/finishing 4 dining room chairs and, so far, things have been going pretty well. It's tedious, dusty/dirty work, but I think I'm doing okay. I've been uttering a prayer under my breath for Buck to guide me as I work.

That's amazing, Katie. I suppose you have helped Buck in the shop many times over the years but is this the first time you've been at the helm on a customer's woodworking job? It is tedious and dirty work. I applaud you for being the wonderful mate you always were to Buck - to the end and beyond. I'm sure the chairs will be beautiful.
