When I was a kid, we had one of those wind-up record players, like a Victrola but a different brand. We only had two records for it: "Mule Train" by Frankie Laine, and "Tennessee Waltz" by Patti Page. I was one happy kid when they got me "Frosty the Snowman" to play on it one Christmas! But Patti Page remains one of my favorite singers of all time and "Mockingbird Hill" is one of my all-time favorite songs as well.
Sunny and mild weather continues here with a little more snow melting every day. Driveway is pretty near dry but my yard is mud and water with a fair bit of snow yet. Less snow as you go south. Temp was in the high 40s in Fort Qu'appelle today as I drove through. The Gopro camera ook this photo showing the Qu'appelle river and only a patch of snow left in the bushes off in the distance.
Right or wrong, I signed the contract for a new shop this morning. Decided to go with a Cleary energy series building. Will be 40' x 30' with 10 foot inside clearance with heavy trusses and metal siding and roof. May be sometime in May to get it put up, but will give me some time to get the site ready. Just can't wait to get the little dozer out and tear up some dirt. Will have to go into debt for this project. Hope the bank is friendly.Gene
Took some pictures of the 3 point tiller. Some call them roto-tiller and Howard company built a larger machine called a rotovator. Have to run them slow to do a good. 1st gear on the 700 was just barely slow enough to run it and had to do some clutching in heavy load.Ralph, the site has about 1 foot fall, high to south. Will pull the dirt to north and east from the high part. Need to have that lower for water drainoff. Will lower the west side out from the building so water runs away away from building
