Well seeing as winter is almost here, I guess it is time for an update on me Pole Barn Project or the "New Home For My Cubs"
As you may remember when we left off last winter.. it was a real chore once the snow began to fall on Remembrance Day to actually get the Pole Barn to a state where it could be left for the winter, and I would not have to freeze me tush off trying to get it done.
Along with other life issues such a grandchildren, kids.. moving, moving.. moving... and other exciting passtimes, it has been a while getting done. However, I am essentially weathertight and the Cubs are snug as bugs in a rug -- dry too!
Here are a few pics.. It ain't pretty, but it is sealed nicely. Hopefully siding and aluminum will come along next spring to match the house.

Why the Stop Sign you might ask? Well after my experience this summer on the private road that my wife's family own's, we are now closing our driveway daily. Seems people do not quite get the concept that private property is "well" private
. Nearly every day we have somebody going for a drive down our driveway cause they think it is either access to the Mill, a shortcut to Melanson Road (they would have to invent a car that could swim because of the lake back ther) or just want to see what is up that road....
So we have to have private road, no trespassing, no swimming, no fishing and the stop sign along with a huge gate to keep people out. It is real scary when you come walking out of your shop with an armful of stuff for the cub shop and almost get run over by a stranger motoring down your driveway

So, with Duane home tomorrow to give Dad a hand, hopefully we will have the second section built, Gord and I will have the trailer unloaded by Thursday morning and I guess maybe I might be ready for an impromptu MiniFest on Friday morning. Seems Bruce and Dale will be down from Nova Scotia and Gord and I will be hosts... maybe we can get Ellie's head redone Friday.. we shall see.
Anyways, more on the saga of the "New Home For My Cubs"
in a bit.
