Absolutely Awesome. A hand up is way more useful than a hand out.

Got a 2nd pair of my prescription orthotics. Having a backup pair is a GOOD thing, especially as hard as I am on shoes and orthotics. (My feet are really screwed up, but the orthotics help, a LOT.) I'll probably get 2 more pairs in a couple of months. That should last me for a couple of years, at least.

Had the other half of my years firewood delivered.

Nice couple in their 30's. New people that I found this year. Brought me some of the driest, cheapest and well split would I've ever had. The guy was open carrying a S&W M&P which got him extra points in my book. Hope they keep it up and I can order from them next year. Lot of people sell wood here, not many are actually dependable.

Made an appointment today with a local crematory to pay for my cremation, + gave them several suitable small vintage high quality containers to divide up & place my ash's in (sifted so they contain ash only). Also going to order small engraved (with pertinent info) brass plaques to attach to those containers.

Just trying in advance to make my passing as easy, simple & straight forward as possible for my wife & family.

It's not a subject that gets talked about much but is an important prep for our families.
My father made arrangements for cremation and prepaid it years ago. When he passed in 2007 it made things much easier. I knew his wishes and didn't have to go back and forth with relatives over arrangements. Some of them are opposed to cremation.
Also, rather than rush to arrange a service, I was able to plan a nice memorial a month or so later. Family members were able to have time to make travel arrangements. A dear friend set up and catered the service and a pastor friend of mine (Chaplain at our local VA) officiated. It was a nice and un-stressful celebration of my father's life and what he would have wanted.

What is the box made of? Marble? Onyx? It's beautiful. Maybe maple? I can't tell.

Our family over 50 have all selected their final resting place for their cremated remains on this property and my grandfather is already buried under a chestnut tree . I agree these plans need to be in place to streamline a difficult transition .

In the last week we prepped the ground where I will be building a small garden tool shed , and another site for a duck shelter. Planted a black walnut, two Bing cherry , a japanese pepper tree, 4 pawpaw, a black currant and an Illinois everbearing currant and predug 3 holes and posted for protecting the next acquisition of nut trees. Finished bracing the floor joists on the hayloft floor. Burned 1 and a half brush piles with 2 and a half left , of which realistically, I may get two burned before winter as the wet season is already upon us .

Just an FYI:

Rechargeable Plasma lighters ignite wax dipped make up remover pads quick.





Placed in flammable cellophane so the tinder pads don't stick together in hot weather.

Up at 0330 to get ready for a weekend of playing Army. Wife asked me to open the big ďshutterĒ I made to cover the sliding glass door. After Iím dressed I grab my lil mag lite and walk around the house to unbolt the locks and open it. Just as Iím walking around the back side of the house something catches my eye. I look down and had to do a triple take to make sure I wasnít dreaming. There in the grass is about 3 feet of shed snake skin. it was too dark to look closer but hopefully itís too cold for its owner to be around. More importantly, I hope the wind blows it away before the wife gets up and sees it. Shed have a heart attack.
Hopefully itís from a bull snake and not a rattler. Maybe Iíll find out later. Hopefully not.

Took the car in to the shop this morning for some Preventative Maintenance--oil change, replace engine air filter, and replaced the battery that was starting to leak acid. Figured it was better to replace it NOW that wait for it to fail when I could least afford it to.

Also worked with husband and daughter to add to the fencing in the goat/cow pen...blocking the area behind the shelter so the little brats can't get back there and get their heads stuck in the wire fencing behind the panels. We also set up where the new gate entrance will be. We're expanding the side out into where the horse corral had been then moving the front back a bit, so that we have an easier time driving past there.

Also went on a hay run to pick up another 4 bales. Goat doe is now giving a quart per milking, so that amounts to about a half gallon a day.

Emptied the chest freezer to defrost, rotate and reorganize the contents. I find comfort in having several coolers in various sizes plus a spare 75qt. one.
