Nearly have the deck built on the back of the camp kitchen.

Wouldn't you know it though...

Two days ago I bought 75 bags of concrete

And today they're on sale for one dollar off

My cheap arse is probably going to go buy more

load them on a skid and roll'em over to the return counter

Some of the big box stores around here will honor missed coupons or sale dates if you bring the receipt in within a certain time frame - like 20 days at one place. Might be worth a try.

I got the credit Mark

Building materials are so damn expensive these days

Manufacturers still have to meet their overhead

But with fewer sales

The camp is looking good and more is done every time I go past there! What you need is a ramp or jump into the Chass! We can enter through the air!!! That should be ok with FWC, right?

I did not! I'm very relieved I don't have to practice my jumping.

Problem is...

There's another gate in about a mile

You can only make the loop and come back out at Cody's place just to the west

Although it's been a while since I last checked it

There used to be a way around the gate through the woods

A soft mouth is what makes a good bird dog

Guess who caught this?

That's really good news

Hopefully the coyotes won't find them

After the bird settled down it realized it could squeeze through the pen

It was gone the next morning, seemed to be fine

A long way from when I first saw him laying at my feet

Apparently in shock, I thought it was dead

But upon close inspection I noticed nothing wrong with it

I placed him under that moss in Chuck's pen and he soon came back from the dead and was flying around in panic
