First job was to clear out the shed. As I went in, I spotted a snake. This was Friday afternoon.
The truck arrived!

Here is where the moral support comes in... Daisy. She was napping in the goldenrod. Then, very cat-like, parked herself right in my path.
Buster came by, but he was only passing through.
Then I had to stop and take a photo of a plane, then grab a drink of water.
Dorah was watching from the house. She was no help at all!
There was a dock spider supervising, too.
|Saturday morning it was still there.|
The wood fairy didn't help out at all!
No one worked on it during the night.
I began around 9 a.m., NO helpers until hubby began to help, having done his dishes.
|Be careful with your back, JB.|
He was loading up the garage.
|Time out, while I had to pump out the tires in the trailer.|
Hubby was helping by putting some old wood in the garage. He also went out and killed a caesar wrap for me for lunch, as well as scoring some boxes in town (for the debris that will be our kindling). Then he had to go back in to buy some groceries for his special diet.
I soldiered on!
I stopped for a moment to check out the Eastern Comma that morphed. More on that later. I'd been trying to film a Question mark, but accidentally deleted the video when I thought it hadn't emerged. I was pretty tired, I suppose.
|Last week, an Eastern Comma broke free.|
They are ubiquitous on my Hops.
I stopped for lunch to watch the US Open Tennis, with Milos Raonic vs. Burgos (who played rather well!). We have two Canadians in it this year. Raonic and Bouchard. Both hard-working young people.
We were watching for my cyberfriends, who were at the match!
Did you think I spotted them - it's a fuzzy shot from the TV?
This is his selfie. I love their t-shirts!

|This has to be Keenan trying for phone service!|
He has lots of friends wanting selfies
for vicarious thrills!
|Lots of photos of Raonic floating about.|
Back to work after the match, I found more friends. There was a honeybee right in the doorway, with a home in one of the mice tunnels. It went in, I covered up the hole, not wanting to be stung. I unburied it when I covered up the wood for the rain.
I'm about 3/4 done, but we had 20mm rain last night, and more this morning. I had to put away the boxes of kindling in the shed. I had a feeling... We shall see if I go out. I'm pretty achy!
