|Tightening up the first run of woven wire.|
Taut line hitch is hands-down the handiest knot a person can know. Just remember, two on the inside, one on the outside.
|Looking down the fence line (west).|
|Second run of fence along east edge. Note the 5' grass path to support traffic inside the fence.|
|Close up of fence post with screw in insulators. These appear to be black, glass filled polypropylene. The black pigment should provide protection against UV degradation. The glass adds stiffness.|
|The bag the insulators came out of. I am up to $25 out-of-pocket for the 165 feet of fence.|
I will likely take a day off from blogging tomorrow. It is my parent's 57th wedding aniversary.
The week of August 18, 1956 was a great week for my dad. On Thursday, mom had a headache so he went fishing and caught the biggest fish of his life. He shared that little tidbit with me just last year....that he caught his monster on his honeymoon.
That was back in the day when people did not spend money if they did not have it. Mom and Dad spent their honeymoon in a cabin on the shore of a small, mud-bottomed, southern Michigan lake. That is where I will be tomorrow.
