Wheat harvest is well under way. Heat and harvest. They seem to go together well. Renter had some flood damage, he said. Four trees undercut and had fallen into the creek bed. He did have a person willing to cut out the trunks for lumber.
Given the price of walnut anymore, the effort is easily worth the time.
These trees were what Renters father was saving for him. Part of his patronage,I think. It’s a shame the creek had to take them down somewhat prematurely.
Near neighbors brother evidently got out on bail, or they simply let him go pending catching him again. He came around last night well after dark and parked up the road, walked along the fence and fussed about the house.
One thing about predictability, the police know about where and when to look for him when they want him. And want him they will (well, maybe not. They don’t necessarily yhunt up trouble, just do what’s necessary). The brother is the one with the mean streak. Violence is his answer to all, Pity all the meanest couldn’t have been creativity.
The siding project should get underway sometime next week. I’ve signed the papers. It is the smallest of the projects (other than replacing a few fascia board, which I’ll do myself) for this year.
I’ve about completed the backfilling the various sink holes that developed around the pastures and lawn areas. I had to wait for the creed and dam area to dry enough to till the bottom and blade some dirt piles.
