This is what we have been working on for the past few days - the attic over at Stacey's cabin. First we had to put plywood down so that you can walk up there without straddling the stringers or ceiling trusses. Then we had to find a product to replace the fabric in the ridge vents that was falling down. Rejean then had to build and install the new doors for the hole that had to be cut in the wall to access everything. I had to help install that door which turned out to be quite the process. Two ladders were used - one for each of us - then we had to push the doors up the ladder and hold them in place while he screwed them into the frame. And they were heavy - there was some swearing going on but we got it done.
Another project completed.

It was World Book Day at the boys' school so Jodie dressed them up as the mice in the Gruffalo story book. She is very creative and I think the outfits turned out pretty good and you can tell the boys are just thrilled.
That is Monty on the left and Charlie on the right.
...and I think I have a couple of Gruffalos living around here that we can look for in the woods this summer when the boys come for a visit...I bet we find them!

Our old quads were 16 years old and mine was not in the best of condition after a botched oil change by a business that should have known better (I will not mention any name) It was finally brought back to life by Barry, who is now the new owner of the Honda 250 4-Trax. I had been using Stacey's 350 Yamaha but always worried that I would somehow damage it. And Reagan's Yamaha had issues. We now have new 2018 Yamaha 450 Kodiacs in a sharp flat grey colour. Power steering and a winch on each one. I rode it up and down the driveway and can't wait for the snow to melt so I can get on the trails.
It is going to be a good year for quading...
Rejean was out blowing snow this afternoon and ran into a little problem. He had slid to the side of the driveway and couldn't get out. He came and got me at the house after he had rigged up the tow rope and all I had to do was get in the truck and pull him out.

A nice day so off we went to do some ice fishing. We got all set up and waited - and waited - and waited. Rejean got a hit but that was all. No fish were harmed today. But maybe tomorrow because we are headed out again. To a different lake tho. We still have minnows left!!
Notice my tiny beverage stuck in the snow to stay cold. It was a sample mojito and it was pretty good. I might take some Fireball with me tomorrow...
