I would also like to add my thanks to Jeff & Tammy, his family, friends and neighbors who helped put on this event!
This was my very first FF Pig Roast and I enjoyed it all.  Good fellowship, Great food, and prizes to boot.  It was worth the 1750 mile round trip from Alabama to Harrison, MI.

I would also like to thank all the FF sponsors who provided support or door prizes.

Please enlighten those of us who were unable to attend this year:
What games were played and what prizes were won?
How many people attended?
Did Tammy walk around carrying any big cabbages?

Jeff constructed a "Plinko" like game, where each contestant was given 3 cedar disks to roll on edge down a ramp. These went across concrete, and into wooden slots marked with + and - numbers, the total of the three giving the score. Hats, key chains, pencils, backpacks, flash lights, toy chainsaws, ceramics, band saw blades, and a Log -Rite log lifter were among the prizes. The grand prize was a Stihl backpack style leaf blower. I would rough guess 75 - 100 total on Saturday, including Jeff's family, friends, and neighbors. The only cabbage I heard mention of was in the boiled dinner. There was a "surprise guest" who appeared during the Plinko game, hopefully someone got a picture! :D

Thanks to all that a part in making this year's pigroast a great time!   I'm just getting back after having left with Steve Beecraft Sunday afternoon to go to the cabin for a few like in the olden days!  Had a great time. We picked almost everything up that was in the yard before we left. Always lots of help when we need it. :)   Now its time to catch back up and convert the pig roast central pole barn back to being just a garage and pole barn and shop. :)  The yard was surprisingly long after having such a workout just 3-4 days before. Harley missed me. Tammy did too. :)


I also have to now dig up my well. >:(

THe pump kicks on every few minutes for a few seconds when there is no call for water. Very low pressure until the pump kicks on, then it is normal. The sprinkler system is designed to take enough water to keep the pump running, so that is the only time we get good pressure to take a shower. Otherwise, it is bad, then good, then bad, then good.

This is a pvc well. Buried bladder tank which I feel is probably the issue plus there must be a leak due to the pump kicking on when there is no water call.

Little or no water pressure until the pump engages is most likely the failed bladder in your pressure tank, by the sounds of your issue, might be one in the same.  a hole in the pressure tank with failed bladder will give you those symptoms, pressure with the pump running and little to no pressure with it in static mode.  Most we have worked on with that issue was an internal failure to the bladder unable to apply pressure to the system without the pump running (no air retention in the bladder) with the short cycling of the pump it could be a combination of failed bladder and hole in the steel casing of the pressure tank.  One common issue we find regularly in this area is the pitless fails where the PVC or other type of piping passes through the casing of the well through to the down pipe via electrolysis burns a hole in the pipe and causes the short cycling of the pump as a leak, which could also give the symptoms of the low pressure until pump engages as usually there is not a check valve between the well head and pressure tank on most systems I have encountered.  Short cycling a submerged pump is the worst on wear and tear on the impellers and pump, running continuously is a lot less harsh then short cycling for sure. Not knowing your exact situation of well setup may prove I just shot into the dark, just we do deal with a lot of well issues in our area and the most common effects or reasoning behind them being my post herein, whatever your situation, best of luck in an expedient resolve, water issues are at the top of the list of annoyances for sure.  The pig roast looked to be a blast, time constraints left us out, we are hoping to change that in our lifestyle and hope they are still ongoing when we do figure that all out.  Hope your water issues are short lived and an easy resolve.  Mike

A week ago right now a dignified group of sawyers finally called it a day including Jeff, Chet, WDH, Stan from Coldwater,Fat Old Elf and 4 or 5 others. What a load of talent in one spot. I had no idea that WDH was an accomplished bass player.

Quite a few first timers this year and that is encouraging for the future. So many people get my personal and profound thanks for a great time.  Glad to see Glassman to add to the list of "man" members including Pig Man, Cedarman (3 generations)
and Magic Man who is touring with his wife Pat in Alaska. Also glad to meet so many new ladies supporting their spouses addiction to making sawdust. Dr. William Glasser wrote a great book about us "Positive Addictions" He wrote an earlier book
"Reality Therapy" which I admire.

I put over 1700 miles on my Tacoma Toy truck with no problems except the gas prices in Michigan, Ohio, and West Virginia. 
No reason to whine as my sainted wife Bonnie paid for the gas and 5 nights in 4 star motels. She says that's a small price to pay for 6 days and 5 nights of peace and solitude after 58 YEARS of marriage. Good girl.

Thanks again for my huge first aid kit. Bonnie also says thanks as she always patches me up. I got beat out by the nice young man that won the Stihl blower Great stuff ! Looking forward to next year.  My 65th high school reunion is next year. Only 28 of 48 of us left but I will lobby to have the reunion on the first SUNDAY in August 2020.  Keep the Faith..
