Time Out For Leaf Watching

Yeah, I'm one of those people.  I like the Fall.
I like the changing of the leaves.  And I like riding mountain roads.
So this past weekend, the Mrs. and I took a trip to the North Georgia mountains,
and stayed in Blue Ridge, GA.
Part of our weekend was the train ride along the Toccoa River over to Copperhill, TN. 
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!

Updating the Garden Shed

Some 20-odd years ago, I moved a small barn to my property.
As I worked, and cleared the land, it became my "work shed."
Then, as home construction took place, it was a "storage pile."
But once we moved in, it became the true garden shed
it was meant to be, and has been ever since 1994.
But now... the old girl is falling down.
 
 
Remember that deck I tore off earlier this year?
Those planks (weathered and mildewed black) are now the new siding!!
In this picture, those below the window are replaced already.
And the project is now finished, except for cleaning up,
and hauling off some of the old buckets and trash.
Should last another 30 or 40 years now!!

How Many Years?

Sorry I haven't posted in a while...
Lots of work to be done around here before Winter arrives.
But.... we DID take a night out to attend our ....
50th HIGH SCHOOL REUNION!
Oh my, where did THOSE years get to so fast?
