A favorite car
We lived here about 5 years then moved into the motor home for 20 years, now we are back.
When I bought this acreage it was wooded. The twins Joshua and Stephen were about 6 years old. I was ‘watching’ them one day and we walked the land. They said, “We love walking in the forest grandpa.”
We do not have a lot of woods here, but more than most in town. Honey suckles and ivy cover much of the ground in the trees. The words have stuck with me, “We love the forest.” So I decided a while back to try to make a sort of nature path on three sides of the land that is wooded. Maybe their kids can walk it.
At times I have made some progress. I have expanded the two bridges over ditches to about 4 ft. so I can take the riding mower into the ‘forest’.
Today I discovered two old bed spring sets. Remember them, they were before ‘box springs’. It took a few hours to dig them out of the entwined vines. There should be some use for them as art. LOL. Then I discovered more nests of bottles.
It is nice not being in a hurry, but I am anxious to start dressing it up with ‘stuff’, such as concrete figurines of a little deer, frogs, rabbits and ducks which I have already.
This keeps me off the street and out of trouble, methinks.
Land history: I built 3 houses to sell here. Later I did two large condos for ourselves and my sister and her hubby. We still have the condos. One side is rented to a nice couple and we are back in the other side. That rent about covers our taxes and insurance.
