Cooties Again

This cootie was made by Dennis, N5DRB, my nephew.  You've seen some of his work before.   This is a first for me, the magnetic tensioning makes adjustment very precise and stable.  I'm having a blast sideswiping!!!

Winter Photos

It's been a while since I've been to town and had access the the internet. So here's a few photos of what we've been up to recently.

The first is a shot of my 1976 Power Wagon with the BOSS snow plow. I'd just bought this truck in January of 1977 a few months before meeting Lori. It still works great even with balding tires.

This next photo is of my home brew firewood processing gizmo we have on the back porch.  We get these dry 5 foot long logs and then we zap them into 16 inch hunks.  Bada Bing, Bada Boom!

This next one is a photo of a Swan on Little Beaver Lake that seems to be staying over for the winter.  We think it may have been injured.  But it always seems to be content and has several duck buddies that it hangs with.  Plus there's always a spot of open water on this lake where it comes out of the spring.

Here's a view of our house from the driveway below.  I took this photo while plowing on a nice day.

Have a great December if I don't get back to the blog before next year.
