Weekend Outlook

It's an overcast and rainy outlook for the weekend.  That might slow the evolution of the backyard from Appalachia to New England.
~
I've been making progress though.
~
All of the trim has been installed and shingling is half done.  All I have to do on the house is finish the cedar shakes, then paint the trim.
~
The next priority will be to fix the stockade fence, then build a wood crate, then move and organize the wood pile.  After that, the backyard lawn and plantings will have to be attended to.... but that gets pushed out to May.  I'm going to get a painting contractor in shortly to do all of the trim around the entire house.
~
If all of the house stuff is done by the end of March, that will leave April to get the Pram and the Tender refurbished and ready for an active boating season this year.  We'll get the WhaleEye in in May and start reeling in the fish and lobsters.
~
That's the plan for this weekend.

Got a call last night from a guy who built my house. He is in Sousa Baranowski for the rest of his life for murder. For what its worth, he is a guy who has nobody, and we communcate with him and keep a few bucks in his account up there.


As my pop, a Navy corpsman, later to become and MD and professor at no less than Yale University said to me when I told him this, hoping for affirmation for being a good Catholic: "we all could be in prison Pat. It's no trick to be free."


Maybe that is why we see eye to eye, Johnny.
