A Day To Remember

We are so thankful for our freedom and those who have fought the battles to keep  us that way.
Remember your love ones this Memorial Day!!!


What is left after the tree had to be trimmed.
One of many trailer loads of branches.

Drained pond :(
We have two huge projects we are working on and boy our age is showing. We have a yard full of huge tree limbs and branches that we are cleaning up. We had a tree trimmer come in and cut the stuck branches out of the tree before someone got hurt and he cut everything up in smaller pieces. Now to clear the brush and load up the wood to take to Michigan to our daughter. 

  And, we had to drain our pond (long story). Jon has worked 3 full days on it and now is ready to pull out the lilies and put back the fallen stones. We promised ourselves we would take off on the motorcycle for some fun this long weekend. But, that doesn't look like it is going to happen. I am also planting lots of flowers. We do not have trouble falling to sleep at night.

Oh dear, lots of branches thank goodness you have somewhere to get rid of them, and the swing has been saved, phew. :( your pond picture
saddened me, wonder if the winter was too much this last season. So much work when we get older. Took down our pool last summer, just cant keep it up anymore and no help so..... sometimes we have to let go...hard...very hard. Im sure your flowers will look beautiful and once you have the pond refilled it will be back to its original beauty. The best to you.

Oh Joan, was sorry to hear about the pond, what happened, it seemed OK when we were up there, always something. You guys take care and get on that motorcycle and go go go!
