Eric had the week off from school and spent Friday and Saturday doing yard work for Bob Ruberti; raking leaves & sticks from the lawn and gravel back onto their driveway. He picked up some cash and was able to re-infuse his debit card. He had a AAU practice in Frankfort at Coach Spina’s driveway and Jack Crane spent an overnight.
Kathryn and I took advantage of the nice weather to accomplish yard work. I raked the area between the fence and road; the front lawn; the sticks from the Shad tree, and four wheel barrow loads of seed pods from the little locust tree.
We had a lot of downed limbs and branches due to winter ice storms and high winds. Some of the limbs were big enough to cut up with the chainsaw.
Billie Jo posted a couple of favorite photos on Facebook with a birthday salutation. The top picture is from one of our 1st trips to Utah. The bottom picture is one that Ed photo-shopped by combining a picture of me from a back packing trip in 2009 to Kibby Pond with Eric and the Hays onto a pseudo Nature Conservancy magazine cover.
For my birthday Eric gave me a fancy blue bird house and Kathryn got a replacement Bartlett pear tree. I gifted myself with a truck cap for the Toyota Tundra. I hated the Tonneau cover and the truck cap is more suitable for loading canoes. Jim & Pam Helmer joined us for dinner; chicken & biscuits with the traditional Tomato Soup cake.
