Beth, each of us love and admire you both. Being able to share this with you even from a distance makes us feel like family. We all I'm sure wish we could do more. I was just looking at the pictures you posted, you can see and feel the love that has gone into the refurbishing your home. It's love at it's best.

Beth, I know the disassembling was hard for both of you. I'm glad that you are able to be together so much. You are a shining example of "for better or worse, in sickness and in health". Your love for one another shines brightly and makes me strive to be a better wife. Thanks my friend. My love and prayers still going up for you both.

Hey Uncle Bob!...doing just fine...yesterday was a good day...dh left at 6:45 am on his motorcycle and arrived safely at his mom's 9 hours later...he was only able to take in about 700 calories on the trip so will see if he can make up some in the next few days. He lost a pound last week because eating is proving to be so difficult for him. He wasn't going to decide until the morning of, if he was taking his motorcycle or his truck to TN. He is resting today and will go sailing with his brother tomorrow on Percy Priest Lake.

Last week a friend called and asked him if he had any scrap metal he wanted rid of. So the friend brings over a trailer and dh proceeds to fill it up, leaving no room for the friends' stuff. No matter, they will take a fun day next week and travel together to the junk yard and see how much $$ we get for the stuff dh has been stewing about how he was going to get rid of. It did take a toll on dh to load that metal up, think that is why he lost a pound last week.

So sorry, UB, to hear of your JD troubles, you did good!!, hope you got your parts!! Dh has been working on fixing me up with some suitable mowing machines. I got new wheels!!!. Of course will post some photos. My main mowing machine has been the JD 111 which I have had for about 15 years...dh's dad had bought it new. So now I have a 2002 JD GT(garden tractor)225...we were going for an LT (lawn tractor), until I mentioned I would be using it to mow what parts of the garden I would no longer be planting. So I guess I need a GT to mow the garden?!

I had some friends over for lunch yesterday and will meet with my regular monthly lunch bunch on Monday. The weather is beautiful, no humidity, and will get to play in the dirt some more.

The photos: the trailer loaded with our scrap metal, my faithful JD 111, my new wheels, the two push mowers dh put together for me, the garden that I rototilled all by myself for the first time, some veggie and flower plantlets and the front flower bed that I have been working on to cut back the Johnson Grass

That's beautiful, Beth. Are you sure you don't want to continue planting even a little herb garden? I get so much contentment from mine.

Sending you hugs and good thoughts.

Wow!!! 9 hours on a "Motor- Sicle" is quite an accomplishment!! I don't know if my boo-hiney could take that ride! Glad to know he made it safely and I know he will thoroughly enjoy the time spent with family...especially sailing with his brother!!

I need to go on a scrap iron hunt myself...Might pick up a few bucks...although I hear it's not bringing very much right now..I tried to give a guy some copper pipe awhile back and he wouldn't take it...Said it wasn't bringing anything. Huh?? Time was when people would go in houses and rip out the copper to sell..For money to buy drugs and booze!

Yep I got the parts yesterday...The right ones this time...2 O-Rings that go in the hydrolic lift system on the 1050 JD...Glad to have it back running...it' time to plow!

Love your new ride!!! Bought the DW a New Ride last year..(See photo) She loves it....Also just last week I bought this little wagon that goes behind her new ride..(See Photo) She ask why on earth I bought that thing??..I told her not to ask too many questions, and if she behaved herself I would let her ride in it, instead of walking, when we go to the store!........ She was not amused!

Mow the garden??? Hey don't laugh!! Been there done that!! A few times in the past, late in the fall, when I've been totally burned out on gardening, and I'm tired of tilling/hoeing etc. I've let the grass get ahead of me...especially if it's been raining a lot...So one year...last year I think...I just went up there and mowed the grass between rows Pretty smart huh???...Only problem I got stuck So if you've never gotten stuck while mowing the garden I'm one up on ya!!!

Take Care...and Stay in Touch!!!

gosh Uncle Bob, that is an adorable ride you have there for DW...what is the inch cut on that deck? I had to go with a 42 inch cut to get the machine through the garden gate! I had not thought about a trailer, but what a good idea. Up until last year I had a golf cart for that very purpose but I sold it, too much exhaust fumes and I thought using the wheel barrow was better for my health......oh, now I am coveting a trailer.....

you might want to check out the recent prices for scrap...they are on the rise..
