After Jasper, it was time to make a visit on the home front and see how things were doing.
Besides, it gave me lots of time the next day in Rocky Mountain House to get an oil change for the truck and an overdue haircut for myself.
Back home ‘on the land’ it was a busy time chasing some nice beef out of the yard, and checking out a local coyote while out on a kayaking expedition one day.
It must be fall; even the grasshoppers are trying to get inside.
I went crazy and (finally) tore off the rotten steps on the front deck, and replaced them with brand new ones. Even had to make my own risers.
I put the old railings back on – that will be a project for another time!
After that successful project, the stairs on the back deck were hardly even a challenge!
Again, Hailey was pretty tuckered out.
We also got a small neighbourly work crew together one day to remove the unsafe dock from our fish pond. With many hands at work, the job was over in no time. The posts will have to wait for later.
