You may have noticed that I’m a little late Announcing my Birthday this year.

, A HAPPY “79”

So please bear with me, the older I get the slower I get.

I have a lot of projects going on, but only in my mind, so sorry, no one can see them.

I’ll have to show you what’s been keeping me occupied this winter.

Woodworking has been on the back burner this winter.

Working with snow has been my main project so far.

I’ll show you some of the fun I’ve been having.

Making use of an old woodworking tool. It worked great!

Now some beauty made by nature Taken by Barb.

Some kind of animal??

Using my little snow blower on the Gazebo roof.

Hanging out with our Rooster!

Most of the snow removed!

Our front yard.

Barb in her winter gear!

Happy Birthday Dick!
You know at this rate of slow down you’ll be 101 when you announce your 100th ;^)

As far as slowing down, from the way you are handling that snow, it looks like you would be working me in the ground. I love winter, I just hate snow.

If it’s any consolation, Spring is only 25 days away…
Tell Barb that you take good pictures of her… :)

Happy Birthday Dick!!
There has to be a joke there somewhere.. When you have enough snow on the roof to use a snowblower…

Happy Birthday Dick!

Jeez, have you thought about moving a little farther south for a little less snow?

I lived in So California for over 45 years and never got one speck of it. Though I could take a 1/2 hour drive and play in it if I wanted.

Happy Birthday, Dick. What a snow!!!! Are you using a cross cut or rip saw…. probably a combination saw? Careful with the snowgrain…I need an endgrain for my project. LOL.
