I.ve never been AWOL from any where, made a few left turns on a right turn only roads a few times, but I always get there. Yes Dave I have been busy on my new John Deere Loader, move snow, dirt, and bushes in the tree line when not raining or snowing. Rented a man lift to work on the lighthouse a few times when not raining. Here the rain is a problem most of the winter, we don't tan, we rust year round. We are over on rain again this year, then again you folks got a boat load of bad weather too this year. So welcome to my world of bad weather. You know most of the lighthouse news has not made much news in the last few years on West or East coast, not hard a thing out here like before 2000. Since this site went on the back burner and folks dropped off the site and gone over to Face Book. The world is on the dog on site, too much said over there. So I'm here folks, I play my records, my tapes, and I don't have a smart phone. Out in the forest it kind of nice, town is 13 miles away, what more could I ask for ?.. The bear know me, stay out of my yards, the deer come each night for there feed, yep the bear comes in at bad time and cleans up what the deer left. So I stay busy, but don't over do it., coffee breaks or many here. Now what say you all out there. And I still can't get a photo to come this site.. Boats"..
