Nice frames!

Glad to hear you're keeping the fire going and doing something enjoyable this winter!  Me?  I'm ready for more cabin time!
I used to know that feeling

This time of year I kinda get the fever
So I read up on it in a favorite periodical




so....not yet

Nice photo chop!

An old song by Styx comes to mind...

Hey guys

My buddy in Alaska and I are sharing vids of our places, since we haven’t seen each other for the last 4 or 5 years

Thought I’d share with y’all

I’m no videographer but that’ll become obvious straight away
And you’ll have to put up with the mumbling narrator

anyway

Here ‘tiz

Sweet setup, I had wondered how all your different buildings were laid out.  Thanks for sharing, I almost feel like I know you now.  ;)

Well, AR, I'm pretty much an open book
Fiction based on reality....not really, I just don't remember what I've embellished (hheh hheh)

Ever git down this way, we can hunker over a fire and swap tales while sipping a brew

That's mighty neighborly of you good sir.  I may just take you up on that one day.  I have a cousin that lives in Bend Oregon that I haven't seen in close to 20 years and would love to go visit.  I don't fly, so it takes time to plan a 2750 mile journey by car.  If and when I do, I'll give you a quick ring for sure.  It would be an honor to meet you and the Missus...  maybe show my wife how retirement is supposed to look like.

Well, sir, when and if you do get the urge to see yer folks in Bend....
Do this, get a line wet in the Deschutes, and pull out a hard fought trophy.
Bring it to our cabin, and we’ll grill it for ya.
We're only an hour and a half down the path

Yes, call ahead.
But make it not before 4pm, or it’ll just silently ring and ring and ring (I’ll be outside).

Around 2, in July and Aug, I have to knock off early due to heat.

I’ll be in the tub



Then drying in the sun


On, hell, call anytime.
I can always call you back.
My email (to get my number) is in my profile

Once we set a date, I’ll be sure to have some clothes on.

If it's still snowin', we can always butcher some wood in the shop

Wunna the colder days of the year here
Thank gawd the wind ain’t blowin’




And the forest gnomes
I think they’re known for hiding in plain sight
‘cept for this’n
Guess the snow blower exposed his form
Grumpy lookin’ little elf



Gonna keep a fire all day

Last thing I did today was make a screen door for the main cabin


Hey Gary,  I was just wondering how well that screen door held up?
I am looking to replace the two exterior doors of my cabin,  but doors now-a-days don't seem to have much in the way of large screens to let fresh air in/out without letting in all the bugs.  I think I will build my own screen doors on the outside, just not sure how strong they need to be.  Everything I draw up looks big and heavy, yours look thin and light... would you do it the same way the second time around?

 Adam, gotta say, I’m very pleased.
Thought sure the thing would hang up on my home built slider, but it hasn’t.
Very happy with that, because I didn’t have the room on the porch for it to swing 90°
You prolly have room.

But

I’ll go into detail on the slider anyway

Left a skosh bit of free space for it to slide

Had to cobble a little stopper on the closing end




But left the other end free (in case I had to take the door off to replace the screen)




Yes, its light (knew it had to be to slide without hanging up)

I had to put a piece on TOP of the inner middle frame to grab and open/close
I chose a small burl (door booger)



As for the door;

I ripped a 2x4 down the middle, yielding 1 ½ x 1 1/4 something for framing pieces

Then ripped 3/8” off the rounded edge of that for strips to sandwich the screen to the remains of the framing pieces


Initially I’d considered stapling the strips, but then realized I’d have to fiddly fart with those if (and when) I’d need to replace the screen
So, I found some short, washer head, screws


Added some 45° pcs in the corners to give the thing some stability (no wobble)


If you think of something else i.e. questions/thoughts/concerns, please feel free to query to yer hearts content
I'm not on here as much as I’d like, and now it’s the busy season, but I get emails when someone posts on this thread, so.....I WILL get back to you within 24 hrs.
Or you could email me garyodan@msn.com
If you email, I’ll get back to you within 23 hrs

Easter morn was spectacular, btw







cheers

yes, absolutely

easy peasy

btw, no matter how much you spend on screen, the stuff ain't all that durable

the chippies have hung in this one, however, with no rips...not sure why...it's the cheap stuff

May 26, twenty nineteen….it snowed



 not a bunch



 but enough

 Even though covered, the freshly planted tomato plants froze
 Pulled the pathetically limp things outa the soil
 They are now compost




 It’s my busy season

 But, I best post some, here and there

 In late spring, one forgets the harrowing winter
 And the winds that come with it
 Cold wind is….colder
 Blowing down trees wherever it wishes
 Trees that never were considered would snap, snap like dry twigs

 One learns

 Prepares

 Hopes

 Breathes sighs of relief


 Or

 Begins repairs

 Dawns seem to keep coming




 weather can be predicted just by going outside





 Things are settled at present

 back to 'normal'





 The chippies are basking in the morning rays

 Seem very deep in thought




 when in reality






 Anyway

 We get the birds
 Never knew how much I enjoyed them
 They are truly a pleasantry

 Some comedic, some gloriously regal, some quite tiny

 Have yet this spring to have the large shadows float over me

 But they’ll come

 Hawks of all kinds

 Coopers

 Redtails

 A baldy here and there

 Turkey vultures are fun

 Took a moment to make a sound vid of a little guy with a pretty voice
 He had some things to say in his charming tune

 Here’s some lyrics



Y'all keep a fire

Spring does that, yessir.

The garden is our target this year

Will letcha know how that goes

Oh, one little tidbit news item;

Our 50th anniversary was this month

 For the last year, we puzzled over what we’d do to celebrate

 It hit us a few months ago
 We’d do what we did when we met

 She was living at home, with her mother and sibs
 Working days, and babysitting at night, while her mother went out, seeking men with money

 I worked days, long hours
 Kept my stuff at a shared apartment with a buddy

 So, we’d meet on weekends

 Find a dive motel, grab some snacks and beverages, and nestle into our little refuge
 Shutting out the world

 Frolic
 Watch TV
 Sleep
 Do it all again

 The last two/three days we did just that

 Heh, some folks get away to a cabin in the woods
 We did the opposite

 Drove til we could feel we were away

 Found a decent motel

 Great bed
 Informative TV
 A couple movies
‘Marty’ being one
‘The Wedding Crashers’ being a fun one

 We didn’t romp like we used to
 Not quite as athletic

 Oh, sure, we sought out every nerve end of each other

 But

 The tenderness was more

 Caressing can become luxurious

 It’s immensely fulfilling



 And



 We went home together this time
