What was your big project of the week, and all things NOT Covid!


Recommended Posts

We have a lot of deadfall branches from our 60+ year old pin oaks, the dam gum ball trees, and the maple saplings that needed cutting, so I got busy. Junior chain sawed about 80 feet of fence line clear, we made a Viking pyre, and a separate feed pile, and I lit the 4ft tall pile with some leaves tucked in the belly of the stack.

The ground was soaking wet, so I could be fairly aggressive feeding the burn. We ended up getting rid of about four truck beds in two hours, and with the brisk winds everything burned completely. Two more weekends like yesterday, and the yard will be in great shape!

I finally finished shoveling and moving the large gravel pile in my driveway.  I rewarded myself with hours of fishing in my pond.

The wife deep cleaned the house and organized the bedrooms and closets.

Painting the house is the next project.

I started doing taxes, always a lot work, not all of it happy work. Yes I know the IRS does not require filing or payment of  the 1st estimate until July 15th, but you have to pay the 2nd estimate on June 15th. Your IRS at work, go figure. On top of that I have not seen any announcements by MO DOR saying they are deferring the  MO filing date to July 15th. I will be filing MO taxes by April 15. So like it or not it is  tax time. Have a happy 2 weeks of numbers.

Group of us walked in Tilles this week -  plenty of space to spread out & brown bag in the pavilion.  Right down the street in York Hills

It didn't take me on the same journey as Tiger King, but i enjoyed it quite a bit. 

You know it is a crazy journey when you finish it thinking the guy that Tony Montana is partially based on and the guy that interviewed a President about the war on drugs while high on crack are pretty good people all things considered.
