Mud, and more mud!

Poor MM. He needed the bobcat from the other side of the cove over here on this side, and the only way to do that is by an earthen dam he left when he deepened the cove 20 something years ago. Unfortunately, he did not hit the right spot, plus the waters have shifted and silted and rearranged. He was a few yards off the mark.



So he had to go get more "iron" to push and pull. He has big toys.



He got the bobcat out, then smoothed up the mess he made...and picked up logs washed ashore and took those over to the fire pit.



Next up was a good hosing down to rid the bobcat of all that mud...followed by a hot shower to rid the machine operator of HIS mud.

It was just another day in Mayberry. MM was asleep by 9:30! Poor baby.

Hello, December! The lake bottom will be drier in a couple of weeks, so maybe he will try again then. Life is never dull.

Avoid the mud...and have yourselves a ginger peachy day, y'all!

Oh, he had way too much FUN! Not. Boys and their toys... Thank goodness! I was very pleased yesterday to see the AAA guy and his big iron, let me tell ya. Oy. What a long day yesterday was!

I'm waiting for one more wash to dry and then it's a nice hot shower for me before I curl up with my new book.

Enjoy your day, too! big hugs xoxo

Knowing Dick he was having the time of his life with that big machinery. He's just that kind of rugged guy. Way cool.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from cold, windy and stormy California. :)
