The trap of not writing and posting has hit me once again. It really isn't excusable as I have such a loyal following of visitors and I don't want to let anyone done. I have been busy, but it is unglamorous and hardly unadventerous material to speak of. It has involved cleaning old shitty houses - no offense Barry or Shelly, numerous dump runs, trips to the scrap steel depot, returning 100s of empty beer and liqour bottles (nearly $100 worth) and so on. Some before and after pictures of these clean-ups would be appropriate at the moment.
So the four of us got caught up and re-aquainted with new events in our lives. We had all crossed paths this past July as a group, and individually we all see one another here and there throughout the seasons. We skied on Saturday and had a terrific time slaying the snow, and the beers apres ski! Take care boys....
And here is a great picture of Scotty Cook and I in September 2010.
So yes, Shelly did get this house/property/farm/?????? out on Hawkinsville road back the first of March. It is hard to describe. It is hard to look at and breathe inside of what I think is the house, but I am not quite sure. Pictures would be appropriate at this time..... But alas. It has about 25 acres or perhaps a bit less. 8 acres are workable and the plan is to hopefully tile another 3 or so beside it ASAP. It'll be rented out for whatever crop is fashionable I suppose.
The bush doesn't have commercial value, but it isn't all swampy either. There is a 3 or 4 acre parcel 50m behind the house that is going to require a significant amount of love. Rough estimates put 5,000 tires, yes, 5,000 piled hazardly about. The good part is they can be recycled and the steel rims have a decent enough value which bascially makes it worth-while enough for a company to come at their expense/machinery/time to take them away. So that is getting ironed out.
And the house is simply not inhabitable. I can't even say if it is safe to be inside with the rot, mold, and the like.
However, I am going to work away and do what I can to church up the outside of the yard. Tonnes of garbage, 3 stoves, 4 refrigerators (with rotting food in them), a freezer (more rotten food), and so on, has been removed and I don't mind picking away at that stuff. But I'll get some pictures.
