Happenings at the cabin
Friday night while heading to the cabin, Joe and I realized that it had been a month since we had been up for a weekend. Sometimes life just gets in the way!!! A lot had happened in a the last month. All of the trees are fully leafed out, the wildflowers have already bloomed and the blackberries were in full bloom. We also had a surprise waiting for us, with all of the wind and rain from the recent storms we had a huge tree down that caused a sinkhole in our driveway. It was one of the trees that we had been thinking about getting taken down, we just didn't do it in time. It will require some major work this week.
We also have had a new neighbor move in, meet Sam the black snake. Saturday morning while walking up to check out the damage the tree had caused I almost stepped on a long black snake. Of course my first thought was kill it, then Joe said it was one of the good guys and would eat the bad snakes. I have to admit that I am not up on snakes, to me all snakes are bad snakes. We noticed that it hung around in the driveway all day even trying to get in on the turkey frying action. I decided if he was going to join the party he might as well have a name, so he became Sam. I am anxious to see if he will still be around when we go back.
