    Ok I'm back from Toronto. Home now for a few weeks!

    When I came home, my dog sprinted to jump into my arms and was whimpering and crying. I missed him so much, I think my wife was a bit jealous

    Maybe next time she will outrun him to you.

    So, I've been little preoccupied of late. After Dad's service I went straight up to our Bush property. Today is my first day of respite. In a nice hotel in town with hot shower the weather here has been wet cold and raining and I just needed a break. I also have to start (real) work and need a proper internet connection.

    With dad being out of action for the last 6 months and pretty slow for the last year there was a bit to do up there. The property was really his baby and I kind of stayed out-of-the-way but since, no offence the rest of my family is a little practically useless it'll be up to me to pass through once or twice a year to tidy things up. Mainly The entrance road and make sure the hut isn't falling to bits.

    I couldn't get the Jonsereds going, so I went out and bought a tiny cheapa-ching chainsaw.just to clear way some of the brush. But it's so flimsy and rattly, the first chain kept loosening and broke. Finally figured out a method to keep the second chain on, but buyers regret big time. Aside from being light there is nothing graceful about it.

    And since I need a long bar chainsaw to saw the big logs for firewood... I had another go with the big red. I'm definitely not a farm boy nor a natural but I'll try anything once, so I downloaded the manual, cleaned out the carburettor, put in a new spark plug and refilled with fresh octane petrol and high quality synthetic oil. And low and behold she roared into life this morning! I'll put up a proper pic when I've cleaned her.up (and hands aren't covered with petrol and oil).

    Final job is to secure the chimney. Few rocks fell inside which has made bit of a mess. My goal is actually just preservation. The inheritance split three ways with my younger brother and sister and they definitely better be involved. But I'll give them a few years to warm up to it. Sister is only 20, brother 32. I'll be happy to restore the cabin, seal things up and try and make it habitable at least half of the year, but if they're not interested I'll suggest that we pass it onto another family.

    That's awesome, sounds like a cathartic project. What's the long term plan for the property, going to keep it in the family? I'd love to own a place like that one day.

    Hope y'all in the states have a happy Thanksgiving. I'm at work until the 29th. Major project going on, manager is on vacation and foreman quit (not unexpectedly).

    So I'm busier than the proverbial one legged man.

    It's not wheelchair accessible. And it's in New Jersey.

    Doorways have to be widened, and there's some whatever the hell you call it in the closets that need to be removed.

    And it's in New Jersey.


    But seriously, I wouldn't mind living in a place like that... if I had a staff that could clean it for me. I'd probably spend a shitload of time in the attic making as much noise as possible.
