A picture of the shed

This is a picture posting test.  First I had to figure out how to get pictures out of a small camera that I haven't used much for a couple of years, and then how to get them onto my blog.  It didn't work on Safari, so I switched to Firefox and it worked just fine.   I'm learning new things.  

This is a picture of the old leaky shed on our property.  

It is 20' x 24' and 12' tall.  It leaks badly and contains rotting old junk. I had a guy that gave me a bid last year to clear it out and said he could also tear it down.  Craig wasn't ready.  I called him this weekend and he is no longer interested in the project.  Guess he has enough other work!  I have the name and number of a regular demolition company, but I don't know if they will do it for a reasonable price.  they usually do large building and house demolitions.

Sometimes the best way to find a worker is by asking a local realtor.  So I went to an open house nearby and talked to the showing agent.   He seemed knowledgeable and said he knew of someone who could probably do the job.  He is going to call me with the number. 

Today I did make the first real step toward the destruction of the shed.  The Electric company men came out and removed the meter and shut off the power.  I've been waiting two weeks since I called them.

Todays log:
583  days, or 1 year, 7 months, 3 days to go.  

Exercise Goal:        1000 miles on the treadmill            2 miles today  972 to go

                                        Someday I will be hiking in National Parks!

I did put some things on the Flea market table, and am now going to look around for some trash.


  1. the shed is ugly and has to go... the benefit will be the view of the woods behind the shed which is georgeous...
