When I went out to feed the chickens this morning, I noticed a new little peep was born so I tried to get a picture of it, but the momma hid the little guy under her feathers, so I settled for this other little peep that is about a week old and will try for the other newer one later.
The day felt a little warm so I looked at the temperature, 83, not bad. But just the same I decided to head on up into the hills where it was about ten degrees cooler with a light breeze.
I did my dirt bike ride first. I stopped once in awhile to throw sticks and rocks off the road here and there. Good exercise that.
Hard work day
Big tree roots
No use, the chainsaw
I thought of using the chainsaw on them but there is no way to cut them without dulling the chain on the first one. That’s because it’s on a hill and when the saw cuts it vibrates everything and dirt and small rocks slide down into the saw cut that dulls the saw in a short time, so I already knew that wasn’t going to work, so I used the axe part of the Pulaski to do it the hard way, one at a time as I said with lots of chair breaks.
Speaking of breaks
I was cutting this root and when I went to pry the stuck blade out of the root, the wooden handle broke and that brought all the work to a screeching halt real fast. If you look close you can see the broken handle on the Pulaski.
I have another Pulaski at home and will see about putting a new handle on the broken one.
Headed for home
At any rate, after sitting in the chair and enjoying the view, I headed on home on the dirt bike taking my broken Pulaski with me.
Tried again to get a new peep pic
Back home I needed a nap and after that I went outside to try and get a picture of the new peep.
So far she has just hatched this one chick out of the eggs she’s been sitting on. I’m hoping she hatches out another one or two.
