Checking in

Hi all, yep, I'm still around
A couple of you were concerned and had Wash check on me. I just had my 69th birthday and it's nice to know some out there care. Not much has been going on and laziness is why I haven't blogged in awhile. The cold weather has set in and the morning temps have been -1°. Lakes are freezing up. My friend got his plane repaired and will be putting his skiis on. We talked this morning and his lake has 4" of ice. He would like to  see about 2" more by the end of next week and we will fly out to check on both of our places.

I am hoping for more snow this year and I will freight most everything for setting up the cabin. I will be hauling pallets out as well to build a dock for my lake. I will do everything the right way this time and get the cabin set up.

I did some more improvements in my town cabin. I put new carpet in half the cabin and vinyl in the other. I also starting putting a ceiling in after 7 years, lol.

I got me a companion, his name is "Cooper". He's great, doesn't bark, house broken, doesn't need to be fed. LOL
Here is my partially finished ceiling

When I bought this wood stove, I put grey slate under it. Bad idea. They broke and chipped real easy. This year, I replaced them with marble tile which I got for $3 a piece and they are strong.
I have my $40 snowblower ready to go. To tell the truth, I'm not sure I will use it. I do enjoy shoveling. Snowblowers are annoying because of the noise.
This is our first snow

Well, that's all can come up with for now so, I will stop for now and try to come up with something more to blog about. Hope you enjoy what I have shared. Take care
