I still have a ton of debris to pick up in the back yard, but I spent 4 hours out there crawling on the ground and scooting my tiny stool all the way down the fence line on the right side of the property yesterday. I can see the 100 foot of fence that has not been seen in over 30 years! I have some photos of the debris and progress shots to share with you, but they will have to wait until tomorrow.
I wanted to address a few requests that I have had to plaster Alaska Man's face on here so I can tell you what a hunk he is... to me at least. Some of these are not the best pictures of him, but I am going to get one with the 2 of us in it so you can see how much taller he is than me. Well, he's over a foot taller than me. His waist comes up to the middle of my rib cage (where I can FEEL skin and ribs instead of layers on top of layers of fat). And I make him stand on the second step of the stairs when he leaves so I can kiss him without having to stand on my tippy toes. So this is a picture of him from just BEFORE he came down here.
And then this one is from 2010 when he was working on a commercial fishing boat.
So, there he is... Alaska Man. He's 6'7" and all muscle and legs. Here's another one that kinda shows his height and how imposing he can be at times.
Not sure if I will see him tonight, but I will be sure to get a pic of the two of us standing up and to get me in the pic, we probably have to cut his head off! And I am 5'5' (I lost an inch already with the crushed discs in my spine and he has lost at least 1.5 inches from his height.).
Anyway, I feel asleep on him last night until about 1:30 am and then I guess he realized I was quiet too long and asked me if I was sleeping. WHO ME?? I was OUT!
And I will have to let your imagination run wild until I can get a good photo of the entire freaking mess I have made in the back yard. Maybe when we get the pile all stacked up. I did cut down a few thinner oak trees that were trying to choke out my maples, but I am so happy that part is done. But I am paying for it today! My butt bones hitting that stool has left some interesting bruises. Weird to bruise your own butt with your own butt bones. Never thought I was have a butt not padded enough to ALLOW for bruising! HAHA
So that is where I am today. I am happy, I have calmed down a lot, and I may be stealing the heart of a good man... at least that is my agenda by they way... claim the one that got away.
Peace, Love, and Boney Butts!
