New equipment for Work

  Buster's mini escavator was worn out.  So, he tried to see if he could trade his in for a new one.  Guess what?  Bobcat said yes!  Today they delivered the new  Bobcat.




This Bobcat has two buckets.  Buster is learning how to change them out.  

Buster has already dug a hole this evening and has a job lined up for a ditch in the morning and too leaks in the afternoon.  

The Lord is good to supply the tools he needs to do his work.   Daily He loadedeth us with benefits.

Almost complete!

  Buster has done an excellent job!  The new addition to our main bathroom is almost finished.  Today we are varnishing the walls, ceiling, and floor.  We will go pick up the shower door, towel rack, and perhaps curtain rods.  It will be ready for use.  After our company we will reprint the rest of the bathroom.  We have old wall paper that needs a little updating.  The closet in the room needs to be taken out to make more floor space.  

I have looked and looked at pictures in magazines.  I do have an idea what style I would like to have.  The results will end up being a touch of what I have in mind, a little of what we have on hand, and then a little of what Buster has in mind.  The result will be a unique style that will fit us perfectly!

Our project update

  We only have about 7 more days to get this project finished, but it looks like we are on schedule to get it done.  Buster did work hard last night and earlier today.  


The wood floor is in and so is the beaded board up for the ceiling.  This afternoon we did go get the faucet for the shower and the light fixture.  More pictures to come!

So exciting!

Buster's bad back

  My husband is the kind of man that is just like my dad.  He can do anything he sets his mind to do.  He could probably do anything, but there are many things he just hasn't gotten interested in yet.  Our daughters wanted to grow up and marry someone just like him.  It took them awhile to find their man, but they found men that can do anything they set their mind to do. 

Buster seemed a little bored I guess, so he joined the Volunteer Fire Department.  Bad back and all!  He has enjoyed each meeting and each fire call.  He can crawl into bed so tired that he thought he would never be able to go to sleep, and the fire alarm goes off!  Up he jumps and off he goes like a young man that hasn't faced back surgery, knee surgery, and all the other pains he faces.  He will feel pretty good for a few days too.  

Last weekend the fire deptment had a demonstration at the Sassafras festival.  We did get to see that.  We could park right by it so even Nannie went to watch.  Buster's job was to operate the pump.  


You can tell who Buster is, he is wearing black.  He does have a fire suit like the other guys.  He wears a fire pager on his hip all the time.  Now he has one of the older fire trucks parked here at the house.  He has been fixing it up in his spare time.  It neede new lights on top and serviced.  He has smoothed out a few dents and polished it up too.  I will get a few pictures of it soon.
