Bump in the night

  Memorable Automobiles from The Past:

                  '55 Lincoln Indianapolis Concept car. It woulda been interesting.

For today:

We went to Outback with JJr and had a good meal last night. Sherry had some steak and veggies left so I made a steak and veggie omelet for breakfast.

As we were eating she said, “I heard a noise early this morning, it sounded like it was in the basement.”

I immediately checked the basement, not knowing if possibly a water break or something. Nada. So we chatted and finished Breakfast.

I headed to the basement to feed the cats and then make a couple bird houses for Granddaughter Megan. When I went out to feed the cats something did not look right near the picnic area. It looked like my rope that was holding a tree was on the ground. I had tied off a tree that looked like it might fall and be near the motor home.

Uh oh, yep it had fell. Mystery of the noise Sherry heard during the night solved. So the bird houses took the back seat. I have 4 chain saws, 3 gas- one electric. I prefer the electric since I am older. So the rest of the day was cutting and hauling fire wood. All this while burning the limbs and knotted cuts. The tree was about 16” through.

It was a fun sorta job and gave my healed back a workout. All is sorted out. I just hauled and stacked the rounds saving the splitting for spring. Sherry came out and we sat around the fire as I petted Trey, the little orange Tom. We had a good talk. It is sorta fun to talk to that girl. She is my best friend. AND she does love to tend an outside fire.


PS: Sherry always says do not get me a gift. But I did look up the 65th stone and got her a small necklace of two hearts with a Blue Sapphire stone. She likes it.

PS2: I laughed at Victor's comment about birds and washig the car:

Baby bird flying with mama: "Mama I need to poop!"

"You must wait until we find a car," was mama's response.

Awww, I 💛 this one! So glad the 'mystery' noise was readily identifiable. Because Tom's also hard-of-hearing, that sort of stuff always puts me on edge. Since he's been in the hospital, after dark the dogs have taken to standing at the front window and muttering (growling) every so often. The first night I even got up and got the gun. LOL.

Outback sure does their steaks right! I do love me some leftover steak and eggs. I'm happy to hear the necklace was a big hit.

So glad you have a great anniversary celebration and enjoyed all the left overs too, but sorry that tree gave way. That is a lot of work for a newly healed back. Hope there are no repercussions.

You and Sherry have such adventures, even a fallen tree. Buying such a lovely necklace was a good idea.

Wow 65 years! That is quite a milestone. Congratulations to both of you. We will be celebrating 30 years in October. Sherry's necklace sounds lovely. So sweet that you said Sherry is your best friend. I feel the same way about my husband. Sitting around a fire and just talking sounds so nice.

You're a romantic and loving person. I'm sure the sapphire necklace looks wonderful.

My girl loves chocolates very much, also shoes. For her birthday I bought her a pair of shoes made of chocolate!

God bless you Jack and Sherry. Happiness and good health always.

It's so nice to celebrate such a momentous occasion. I remember your anniv. because you celebrate with Bill's son's birthday. He's 53, good Lord.! 😁🎈
I love that you two enjoy a campfire. Sorry for all the unexpected work tho. Cleaning up trees is hard work. I hope your back survived. Rest now.
loven'hugs from up north where we caught up at home after a couple weeks working at the farm. The weekend is ours. 🥴 Already we are frazzled. !
