Cliff has been getting lots of help from Jim this week. With the old trailer house gone, there are plenty of other things to move out of that part of the yard. Cliff hauled this propane tank to his storage area near the ditch; I'm thinking about selling it on Craigslist. These things bring $300 sometimes.
My parents bought this shed in the early 70's. When they moved out here, Cliff moved the shed here for them.
It's amazing what you'll find beneath long-standing buildings.
Snakes and slugs, for instance. They seem to coexist just fine. That was a sassy little snake, and Cliff didn't like his color; so he and Jim took a shovel to him.
Beneath the old shed were dozens of fat mice. Can you see the mouse in this picture? No? Let me crop it and make him closer.
He's peeking out the right side of the hole. Click to make it larger and you'll see those cute little eyes.
These last couple of days have been exciting and fun-filled, with plenty of wonderful sights just like these. It doesn't take much to entertain rednecks.
