Are you kidding me?
OK, I Give up.
There is nothing I can do about this blast of winter again,
so the snow forts continue to be the center of attention for winter dull-drum!
There are pop-up holes in the top also doubling as a light source within the fort,
tunnels, winter home theme going on.
It's getting longer, and fun to travel with the several side rooms,
windows, and shelves.
Look closely at the next picture by clicking on it to enlarge it,
and you will see another of the many tools of the trade,
this time, the very end of a garden hoe, hanging on the wall.
He must be finished for the day,
for he's coming out for the night.
For those of you who have been following the progress of
' The Snow Fort,'
you probably have been fooled.
The first four pictures of the fort efforts,
are from when my son was 10.
The snow fort pictures of previous entries,
are of my son and His 3 sons.
The next two pictures show the progress
of this winters way to pass the time til the tire swing can resume it's duties.
My grandson is taking a break just as they are finally
seeing the end of the tunnel.
All that's left to do is to make the 10 inch hole
large enough to travel through.
My oldest son was home during this last snow.
He and his son enjoyed ' one last ride,'
before the trails get too rough.
A ' no school ' day and it's time to play,
even tho Dad recently had surgery on that foot.
Nothing stops a day with the kids.
Another ' project ' was pulled into the yard.
The shop is busy with grinding rusty bolts, tearing down an
'86 Ford to restore, just enough to make into a
' fun truck ' for hunting and fishing.
Boys and their toys!
Me?, well, I've been baking to warm the house
and use up an excess of ' ready ' bananas.
This banana bread turned out great.
One loaf for My Guys, one for the Northern Archery ice fishermen,
and one was sent via UPS to MN. upon request.
I've also been trying to eat healthier.
I love cucumbers, so a quick salad with onions, salt, pepper and
fresh squeezed lemon juice is just the ticket to go with Steamed Salmon Fillets
for dinner. Apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon and Stevia to sweeten, to fool me
into thinking I'm eating Apple Pie.
Like Grandpa Jones would say when asked, " What's for supper?,"
