Ifan old dog gets into a porcupine, he will probably never do it again. If a young dog gets intoa porcupine, he wants revenge. He will attack any porcupine he sees. He is unlikely to become an old dog.

Porcupine quills are hollow. They pull out better if you snip the big end before you try to pull the quill.

What are we doing?

My Dw has been busy cleaning our house, washing windows, sorting stuff, etc.

This past week, our firewood [for next winter] was delivered. So now begins the process of bringing it under the roof and stacking it.

Today I will tour our fiddlehead field, they should be ready for picking soon.

We drove around Graham Lake looking at waterfront property that we don’t have any intention of buying

I'm digging up stumps. They pull more easily when the ground is soft. I have a back hoe on my tractor at the monent. In a month or so I'll put the chipper on there and get rid of a lot of brush. The chipper is PTO mounted. It will take up to a 3 1/2 inch stick.

I am still working...thankfully. Wife and I are outdoors picking up tree limbs from the winter and preparing the yard for mowing. She is working in the garden beds, the tulips, daffodils and hyacinths have come up. Vegetation growth seems to be a bit slow this year. Mostly we are getting ready for summer.

We'll be battling black flies and starting to build a gazebo this afternoon, then turkey hunting. Thank goodness for Thermacell.

I built a dolly to cart my outboard around, just bought a tin boat from my neighbor,

got the old tractor fired up and rode around the back garden looking for the nettles I planted last yr.
I scattered 5K seeds and can't find a single plant.

Son and I put the dock in. This is the last season for this dock. I cannot be winched out intact. I cut the dangerous tree that was about 18 inches from camp. Cut dangerous trees at your waist height. It's easier to depart in a hurry. Cut the base later. I may make a seat out of the base. Son took his trailer out of the barn First weekend the ground has been firm enough.

Boating on Graham Lake, which is full! It’s rare to have such nice boating weather this early! Took our lunch and our chihuahua. Saw just one other boat.

Making dolls for our YMCA summer camp... I've been at it since mid March, when CT locked down. Finally ran out of fabric and stuffing today. (which is perfect bc CT did a partial re-opening today, although I'm still not going anywhere)
