Sadie and Beanie last fall. Buddies.Even without Federal funding, years of engineering and an expected completion date of around 2020, there is water flowing under the newly constructed foot bridge over the mighty Bedlam Farm River…
Even with the constant nagging from Jon to wait until he could get a photo, or move closer together so we were all in the shot…Maria, Carol and I were able to assemble the bride for easier access to their back woods for walking purposes.
Having not seen the brook where they wanted the bridge, the material I took over was just a guess from Maria’s description…Now after seeing how everything went together, I will take over my chainsaw to trim up some brush along with a couple well placed posts to anchor things down for safety sake!
Next, I can turn my attention to the homework Jon sent back with me…Fix the wooden gate his animals ate up! I will replace the eaten up boards with re-bar style wire mesh panels I have. That will work well as long as his critters aren’t like me…I have been known to chew nails and spit rust! Just sayin’!
One scary part was when on our way back from constructing the bridge, Jon gets talking about a Meditation area out in the woods with a gazebo and maybe an observation tower!!! Also, in time, replacing the small foot bridge with a big arched job, so Red could bring the sheep along!!! Damned>>>had to threaten to take the bridge back to slow him down!
Seriously, we would do anything for those two; knowing them is one of the true treasures in our lives!!
