The smoke from the BC wildfires has blown through to southern Alberta this summer … our thoughts are with all of those who have suffered losses …

The smoke definitely has an effect on our breathing, but it produces spectacular colour in our morning and evening skies …

And then this happened … yes, we got it up and the anchor bolts are secure in the concrete, ensuring our neighbours don’t end up with a steel shop on their front lawn!

Our resident inspector has been onsite almost every day, watching our progress and eventually introducing us to her fawn as well … (he is camera shy!)

2017 Jul 30 … Jiggs’ Journal

Moving Day …

One day the big white trailer started to move … it was the first time it had moved in 4 years. For hours it inched back and forth bit by tiny bit. ¬†All of a sudden I heard the chain saw and then a tree came crashing down. After that the trailer moved much better and backed right up to the front door of the house. Stuff started to be unloaded … and there was a lot of stuff. I decided to find a soft seat out of the way and I stayed there all day watching the progress …

There must have been a sale on plastic five years ago, because everything in the trailer was coated in it. I consider myself lucky that I did not get wrapped up in plastic and kept in that trailer for the last 5 years … anyway here is a picture so you can see what I mean!
