    BTW Cayu--how did that cold project go this winter? Did you freeze your nose off?

    @Sjoerd it got cancelled by the forester! They had an unusually warm winter, the ground did not freeze sufficiently to let them get their heavy equipment back in the woods. It was very disappointing. We all (husband, my brother & me) were all in limbo for 2 months, waiting to hear.

    The forester felt badly, but it is all weather dependant. He says he will come this summer. This we all doubt because the farm gets a lot of rain. It is in the rain belt of the Great Lakes. I suspect it wont be until next winter.
    Thanks for asking. I'll keep you posted

    What a shame. Being in limbo was the worst, I suppose.

    Yes. And our ash trees are dying from the emerald ash tree borer. Thst is why we thought we would cull the forest. The ashes are dying, we might as well get some money for them before they are actually dead. Once dead they are only good for firewood. And they are a fall risk in the woods.

    What a shame about that borer. That is a serious problem, Cayu. I hope that the foresters can help you this summer. Fingers crossed.

    Just finished Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. Excellent book, highly recommend it.

    Reading Say Nothing (Patrick Radden Keefe) about the murder of a young mother in North Ireland during the time of the troubles. Interesting.
