Me, the museum and the Antique Road Show

Saturday, I had the opportunity to help at the Bay County Historical Museum while appraisals were completed on different items people brought in.  It is amazind what people have in their desk draws etc.  I saw a mantle clock that weighed about 160 pounds, many beautiful pictures, a sword from Germany in the Second World War, and so much else.  It was a fun day.

Building Bird Houses

I built two of the Petersen Birdhouses in the picture yesterday.  Sue had been asking me to make one for Uncle Richard Hauger.  I have used these birdhouses for several years now.  They are very popular with bluebirds. 

I build one in about two hours.  There are many ways this could get faster but it never seems to happen. 

We went to Sue's mother's for Trick or Treating.  We only had about 25 kids.  That's a slow night.  The costumes were great however. 

Eugene Palmreuter finished taking the sugar beets off the field today.  I am always amazed at the amount of material that has to be moved in that process.
