This week I learned how to take down fence. Monday I took down quite a bit of fence, and I have to say, this is not the kind of work you want to be tall for. By the end of the day I felt like an old man walking around with a hunch back! The following day I went up with the hired man Terry Savage and helped do the opposite, and fix fence all day. On Wednesday, Terry and I were back at tearing down old fence again, and I have to say, kudos to whoever built that fence because it was in some nasty spots. Then on Thursday, we continued to tear down the fence, and it seemed like we were moving at the speed of a turtle. Then on Friday I learned how to spray weeds, and we got a fire truck. Saturday was an interesting day, David bought a fence roller that hooks to the back of a tractor, and we started to roll up the fence that I tore down on Monday. The thing worked pretty good, but it didn’t have the power to tear through some sage brush and trees, so we just cut the wire and spliced it. All in all it was a good week, I learned a lot about fence, and I am pretty sure my spine compressed down a little. Oh and also, the sunsets here are to die for!
