Two projects have kept me from fishing for two weeks.
First is the back yard. It was something like this:
Now it looks like this:
The second project is the fence around the back yard. Last Winter I replaced 3 sections and the gate that blew down during a storm. Later last Winter I replaced 3 more sections. Another storm. Now I'm replacing the rest. It seems that the fence is falling apart faster than I can replace the sections. Every time I work on one section, the boards from other sections fall off.
I only have the strength to replace about one section a day and then I have to quit, so it's going to take a while. I have 14 more sections to go.
I made the mistake of leaving one section open overnight and the deer (you know the City of Jackson apple cleanup and hedge trimming department) helped themselves. I guess tomatoes aren't as good as apples since they just took a bite and then dropped the tomato. Kind of pissed off my wife. She babies her vegetables.
I guess you can say that fishing is on hold for a while, but don't forget me. As Arnold said "I'll be back".
