Well, after making several phone calls over a few months I had to send a certified letter to the electric company to get them to come out and cut down 2 trees that were dead on our property. I sent the certified letter on Friday letting them know that if the tree should fall on our house (or the neighbors) our homeowners insurance company will hold them responsible. So today, Wednesday (just 3 business days later), they were here bright and early to cut our trees down. The power of the written word is amazing.
And these are Mikey's homemade pumpkin muffins for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

Happy Fricken' Birthday to Me...

Poor Chris... Today is his birthday and we woke up to 9 inches of snow, and it's still falling. So that meant he had to get up and go plow the driveway, shovel the back patio and snow blow our walkways to the workshops.
Here is our patio table.
Exactly 9 inches at about 11:00am.

Habitat for Felinity

You have probably heard of the wonderful charity called "Habitat for Humanity", well this is kind of like that... We are building a house for a less fortunate cat :) Although he is going from an apartment to a mansion, he will actually be quite spoiled.
The whole family was involved today. Her is Mikey putting in heavy duty staples to fasten the caging down.
Meghan is digging a trench to bury the next wall.
This is the next wall being assembled that will go where Meghan dug the trench next to the boat. Notice the dusting of snow on the ground? It was a cold day but we were comfortable most of the day with just sweatshirts on. It didn't snow, that is leftover from a couple days ago.
