Title: Um... Jeremy....
Post by: Jeff on April 28, 2018, 09:47:33 PM
We are building a wall. A new fence really to replace our award winning fence built in 2005. This time encompassing the old side yard.

So what's your guess on this picture?  Shortly after we got started, or later in the day? I made in stop so I could take a picture before he took it apart. I just sent the picture to him and he said lol still can't beleive I did that.  The next pictures are of our work today you can see the neighbors little toy fence and our manly Forestry Forum rated fence.  I now have 100ft by 8ft of cedar to saw.

A friends father and his buddies had to splice a big rope for a rope tow. It being winter, and some alcohol being involved, the splicing was done in the back seat of the car. The rope went in one window, and out the other.  :D

I've got ideas for a gate, but its not really necessary as the old fence is coming down, and the area is all open then to the back.

Had a good friend who is a hvac, plumbing guy by trade helping me put in sewer plumbing in our new house. He did one of the vent pipes while I was working in another part of the house. About three days later I was admiring our work when I realized he had left the temporary lighting wires between the vent pipe and floor joists. Had to cut the wires and splice them back together.

Robert Frost "Mending Wall"

Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
No one has seen them made or heard them made,
But at spring mending-time we find them there.
I let my neighbour know beyond the hill;
And on a day we meet to walk the line
And set the wall between us once again.
We keep the wall between us as we go.
To each the boulders that have fallen to each.
And some are loaves and some so nearly balls
We have to use a spell to make them balance:
"Stay where you are until our backs are turned!"
We wear our fingers rough with handling them.
Oh, just another kind of out-door game,
One on a side. It comes to little more:
There where it is we do not need the wall:
He is all pine and I am apple orchard.
My apple trees will never get across
And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him.
He only says, "Good fences make good neighbours."
Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
If I could put a notion in his head:
"Why do they make good neighbours? Isn't it
Where there are cows? But here there are no cows.
Before I built a wall I'd ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence.
Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
That wants it down." I could say "Elves" to him,
But it's not elves exactly, and I'd rather
He said it for himself. I see him there
Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness as it seems to me,
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
He will not go behind his father's saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, "Good fences make good neighbours."

Well, it's a start. I had 3 cedar logs here.  Jeremy and I are making a day trip to our property in the U.P. Saturday to haul home what logs we can on my trailer.

Annuder day of sawing and fence building. I have a gate to build yet and some more old fence to tear out before this phase is complete. Those old poles are coming out hard using a railroad jack and chain.
