So he removed the nest and reconnected all the wires, and he was good to go. Only a little detour from the original plan for the day. Mr. David is a clever man with many skills, thank goodness.
Hopefully, we've now found all the surprises. Although, when Fred stopped by for a debriefing this afternoon (we placed our house in his capable hands while we were on our big adventure), we learned of a strange disappearance. He counted 38 mice caught and removed from the traps we'd set at various spots in the house but......one trap is missing. Where did it go? Where will we find it?
So, wagon tires aired up, Dave set to the task at hand....cutting down/digging out the hugely overgrown bushes surrounding our back patio. After cutting and digging, he loaded them on the newly fitted wagon and drove them around behind the pasture and into the woods. Back and forth he went, till the patio was bare.
Now we need to add some good compost and replant for a more useful and pretty area to spend second cup and cocktail time! Lewis took all this activity and stick production as signs to step up his play schedule. He stole branches and ran, pell mell, around the yard, then added them to his cache of balls.

Since it was our anniversary, we stopped work early and went out for a lovely lakeside dinner. It feels like we've always been together, and yet it seems like just yesterday. Where does the time go?
