Off I go

Can I take my favorite toy and your sock??

HOTR will be posting from Amish Country next week and beyond.

Two people who are not related by blood, but are my family, had a necessary trip to make, but no one to watch their homestead and animals (including a retriever). It looked like they wouldn't be able to go. So I volunteered.

I raised my hand to work on a tedius but necessary project with squirrel central in a virtual capacity for a few days. When that is done, I would use my leave time, since the long flight to see Dad is out for a few a couple more months (knee still not doing long sit times well).

A LEO friend is taking care of my place and Barkley is coming with me. By the time you read this I will be making a stop to play lumberjack this weekend with Midwest Chick and Mr. B. to take care of some downed timber with the Og family (warning, mayhem may ensue). Tonight, dinner with a few of my favorite people, with whatever pies she and I come up with this afternoon.

Repeat after me "I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK. . "

MAY ensue? Puleez...

Video of the vanquishing of downed timber with group-sing is requested!

Jill the lumber, unlimber, sallies forth to confront the mills of wind.
Have a good sojourn.

Sounds like fun, frolic and mayhem, not necessarily in that order. Enjoy, and safe travels!

Don't wreck your knee with an axe, now!

I thought your sock was barkleys favorite chew toy. Have a safe journey. Are you going with them to the gun show and Amish buffet? Take care and have fun.

I've seen this movie!

Pretty young lady goes to house-sit a lonely farm for some friends...

Don't go in the F&$%ing attic!!

I sleep all night and I work all day...

Have a good trip. Last time I went lumber-jacking, we almost detached my in-laws enclosed back deck using a pine tree. Ahh, good times.

"I put on women's clothing, and hang around in bars". But on you it looks good.

So I guess plaid flannel and beards are the fashion statement for the weekend...

Ich bin ein Holzfller und fhl mich stark
Ich schlaf des Nachts und hack am Tag

Er ist ein Holzfller und fhlt sich stark
Er schlaft des Nachts und hackt am Tag

Ich flle Bume, ich ess mein Brot
Ich geh auf das WC
Am Mittwoch geh ich shopping
Kau kekse zum kaffee

Er fllt die Bume er isst sein Brot
Er geht auf das WC
Am Mittwoch geht er shopping
Kaut kekse zum kaffeev

Er ist ein Holzfller und fhlt sich stark
Er schlaft des Nachts und hackt am Tag

Ich flle Bume und hupf und spring
Steck Blumen in die Vas
Ich schlupf in Fraukenleider
Und lummel mich in Bars

Er fllt Bume, er hupft und springt
Steckt Blumen in die Vas
Er schlupft in Fraukenleider
Und lummelt sich in Bars...?

Er ist ein Holzfller und fhlt sich stark
Er schlaft des Nachts und hackt am Tag

Ich flle Bume, trag Stockelschuh
Und Strumpf und Bustenhalter
Wr gern ein kleines Mdchen
So wie mein Onkel Walter

Er fllt die Bume, tragt Stockelschuh
Und Strumpf und Bustenhalter...?
