Fresh post


Our first chat of the day is already pretty full and it's not even noon yet, so I'm opening up a fresh pasture. Frolic and gambol to your heart's content, or snooze in the midday sun. Don't let a cow step on you. And, okay, so it's not exactly a "fresh post." That's very old post rock limestone, plentiful in western Kansas. Man, that must have been hard work to cut and lug those heavy suckers in order to build a fence. Makes a nice sight to see, though, when you're driving through.

Cool pic. Hi everyone. Already off the treadmill this morning and off to try get some work done before I have to drive into the city in a couple of hours. Hope y'all have a nice day.

Just finished putting up my deer fencing. Glad I didn't use limstone posts; although, I didn't care for the deer laughing at me while putting up my fencing. I hope that they don't know something that I should know about buidling a fence.

rick, so this "post" was timed just right for you, eh? Those deer, such cards. :)

Limestone posts?? Wow, no kidding that must have been hard work. I put up a deer fence with plain ol' wooden ones once, and that was fun enough.

Rick, the deer appreciate a fine sense of humor when they sense it - I'm sure they weren't chortling at your fence-erecting skills...

Can you send me a couple of those nice limestone posts, my old rotten wooden ones are nearly useless. I'll email my address.

Nancy P said...

I think all the President's speech writers must have quit over the weekend.

Stone fence posts. Wow. I suppose you gotta use something other than wood when there aren't any trees around, huh? I've helped put up many a wooden post around the farm, and a few metal ones, but have never seen a stone one until now. Mrs. Fetched said something about walking the fence and cutting away limbs; I chimed in about repairs. Sounds like an all-day job.

Rick, maybe they were laughing at the height? "Duh dude, I can jump that with a broken leg!"
