Family Happenings

Cayle and Jay bought a new house, way to go boys!

Margo went to visit Mom

I gave Grace this wonderful pottery face, reminds me of Dad when he was in his teens, she made this lovely succulent arrangement with it for her garden.  I researched it and it was made by a well known artist in New Brunswick I think it is. he molds them on real faces

Betty and Laurie with the help of Chris built a new covered porch on the trailer at the lake

Chris and Erin got the back brick all redone and a new shed

Gabe - 4

We went for a big walk around looking at other parcels of land for Mike turns out his offer was not accepted...for now

we found some really cool abandoned places, looks like hippies from the 60-70's kinda thing outdoor kitchens and all

we went to look at a place near me, 1/2 acre and found this neighbouring cottage peaking through the woods. all caved in i'm afraid, 12 volt batteries still hooked up

we found the driveway all overgrown and ventured in, good to have a woodsman with you

this would have been the kitchen and the doorway to the bedroom

lovely brick fireplace

there are still coat hangers in the bedroom closet

this place was cool, way way way up a forever long driveway, it would have had an awesome view of the ocean, all overgrown now

check out this outdoor kitchen, look at that old ice box, and thats a cooler dug into the ground

the cottage is just this one room with the outdoor kitchen

we found the outhouse way down the property, which was strange

then we browsed around the village

we went into Artworks my friend Kathy's store, ran into an old friend Veronica, poor thing lost her Dad as well at 70 from a wasp sting

then back to the cottage for a nice curry dinner Gerry left for us and some more crib

next day it was over again and back home, sigh

Gabe - 3

With Gerry and the family tucked away inside the cottage Mike and I played crib outside on the back deck

 next morning was an early start for Gerry and the family, off to their new home

Mike put an offer in on a 5 acre parcel with a huge shop and mobile home on we went to do a walk around

then back to do some work

the whole bottom half of the front entry is rotted. one problem that's crept up is the door plate moves and sometimes it jams the door, so we dug in

all better....for now, dudm dudm dudm

there was also a soft spot on the deck, hence the plywood. turns out i'm going to piece the place together one piece of plywood after another
