hunterseat df: Hunter Seat Equitation is a division that is judged on the ability and the style of the rider. The riders can be judged both over fences and on the flat.

Although true, hunters DO eat, at least the skilled ones do, my name derives from the world of horses.

And because the word hunter is in my name, people automatically think I'm a guy. Not even close.

Whenever I meet someone named Hunter I have to bite my tongue to keep from saying "That's my name, too!"

It's a hard lesson to learn.

Bottom line: It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

I recently posted the above well-worn advice to a person asking if they should install a four foot fence or a six. That's a no-brainer for me, having a very large dog who can leap four foot fences in a single bound and thinks seriously about attempting the six footer I had installed.

But this isn't about fences. It's about tea cups. Okay, I'm...

My house is empty and show-ready. I got an offer that I accepted and countered.

I'm trying out living in the teardrop camper with 2 dogs and a cat. We are in the garage and I'm depending too much on exterior surfaces such as counter, top of dryer, etc. However I'm kind of perfecting my system. For example the cat bed is unnecessary since he's claimed cabinet space.

I'm going to set up a room inside as it's going to be in the 30s this weekend. I have a piece of memory...

Can you believe the house isn't listed?

I've got a tiny bit of paint left & finishing up the cleaning.(mostly floors)
Oh, I was inventorying keys and one of the sliders' lock went fubar. Part on order - it's so old, HD didn't have it.

Window panel is replaced but the "4 step" video didn't account for the massive amount of black sealant used so the trim got boogered up. That's on order.

Outside I want to brace up a shade structure and...

I can feel it getting closer. I have very little left to do.

Yesterday the horse enclosure was cleaned out and the "pasture" dragged. It looks wonderful out there.

Only a little left over dirt and gravel to deal with.

Ready for the dump run.

Almost ready to ship my pallet of keepers. I totally repacked it and eliminated a bunch of stuff. Wish I'd done that before the yard sale! So a trip to the thrift store is coming.

Washing Machine drain leech line:
  • Dig 1 ditch, 25ft long, 3+ ft deep, about 2ft wide. (part of mine ran under a fence into the next lot)
  • Line with landscape fabric, not the woven kind.
  • Lay a bed of gravel.
  • Lay perforated pipe. I used 2 sections of pipe that has fake gravel inside of a sock.
  • Run ABS pipe from washer drain line to ditch and connect.
  • Do a load of laundry and observe water drainage patterns.
  • Adjust if necessary and do another load to verify corrections.
  • Fill ditch
