    Rex I got a part o a idea. Don't roll yo eyes now-jus hear me out....this could be a boon fo you an maybe a lil sumpin fo the down-on-their-luckers roun here, like me an Ducky an ol Stuff, too.
    Now, can we agree, jus to start off, that you might...uh, it possible you may be gettin jus a lil tad overstocked on cabins. I mean it ain't no housin bubble or nuthin but, compared to the average joe, you got you some cabins.
    Now that's good-ain't nuthin better then cabins. But, you know, sooner or late Mommas gonna look out there an she gonna think it look like a cabin ghostown. She gonna think maybe we ought put some o them fake cows or sumpin out there-maybe them scrawny scarecrows Marice an them.
    Now hears the good part. That when you step up an say " Honey I been thinkin bout that an what would make you happiest". "I gonna hire us some genuine po white trash to come live in them cabins. When we have compny oer we'll have these ol boys sit out on the cabin porches drinkin shine or hammer on a horseshoe or sumpin like that". It'll be jus like the 1800s."I know jus the ones fo the job too".
    Why you'd have a dang village out there-it takes a village you know. Course you'd be prime minister or elder -whateer the boss o a village is. You'd have drinkin, fishin huntin, dogtrainin buddys roun anytime you needed help wit them things. Oncet the word gets out folks'll wanna come see what all the fuss is bout. Admission $$$, concession stand $$$, gift shop$$$, interviews $$$, reality TV $$$$........profit
    possibilties is endless.

    The Missus' enjoyed your ideas & thoughtfulness but said the part about'
    "You'd have drinkin, fishin huntin, dogtrainin buddys roun anytime" was a
    little too much at this stage in our lives.(beings the 1st 30 yrs of our married lives I had that.....) She kinda likes the peaceful part now..If you could call ThorneSide Cabin, eatin-meetings, me & Stuff' fishin', farming, Plantation Bottoms', a new pup, and a 17 month old grandson peaceful..

    Aw geez. You wasn't sposed to mention nuthin bout the po white trash bein yo drinkin buddys. Figgered that was self explanatory. Trouble wit marriage these days is jus too dam much truthfulness. Ain't nuthin wrong wit leavin out a few details here an there you know.... an a good ol bald-faced lie is healthy oncet in a while.

    I spect this deal is blowed slam up now but ya might point out that Stuff falls down on his left side when he drinks an po Ducky is comin off a heart transplant or sumpin like that. I ain't feelin so great neither an it 'd take all I got left to keep Stuff an Ducky up an runnin. How much trouble could we possibly cause?
    Now look here-DON'T bring this up till you two are settin on the cabin porch at sunset wit lil Maggie in her lap. Wait till she gets that far off look in her eye an takes a deep sigh-that's yo cue to spring the trap.

    Morning B.B. -
    We had a big storm blow through these parts last night and they said on the T.V. for everyone in its way should head for cover. One of the areas mentioned was RockVale, Tn. I figured that Ole Stuff' and his Missus was crawling under the house bout' that time. She was most likely fussing at him bout' him dancing in his shop and never thinking about any consequences and how his actions affect others.....

    The man is just one with nature and he cant do nothing about it! That old voodoo witch told him about the hex she bestowed on him. All he really wanted was to create some good duck weather when he could go, nothing else!

    I been trying to call him the last couple of days but I guess he's lost his phone again...

    You gonna have a door and a window on the front there?

    What kind of windows you gonna use? I know you can still get that seeded and wavy old-style looking glass from places if you aim to keep it "period authentic."

    Looks dang good so far Rex. Maybe you can talk the missus into letting you paint "See Lookout Mountain" on the roof.

    Thanks Dan'l!
    Yes sir, there will be a door and window on the front, back, and one side..
    The Missus' had some windows that came out of our home a few years ago. They are not wavy but will work. I guess we aint quite "period authentic."

    Its been a fun project.. Me & Maggie are hoping to start Crappie fishin' now!

    gots dun so far an it come to me that you jes might wanna put summa thet issen-glass in where the regulur glass is supposed ta be. It wud be a whole lot cheaper than summa the real stuff an nobuddy wud even nodice the deffernce.
    Nuther thot wud be tew jus fell her up with whole ear Corn....Cob, Shuck n' all
    an' leave the open gaps 'tween logs fer the shoot'n of Squrrels an such.

    Just a few thots whut run thru my head.

    Hi Dan'l -
    My buddy that has been ram-rodding this deal has twisted a knee and is having problems walking and ladder climbing. That and along with this nasty weather we have been having - its been on hold. we are supposed to crank by up on Friday and next week if all holds up. We're going to use some old pane windows that were in our old home when we bought it 40 yrs ago. the Boss has been storing them in the barn for a reason... Reckon this is the reason.

    That dang corn is like gold now and aint no reason to feed "mice and tree rats" anything else. Im told we are going to fill in between the logs with the left over purlings and 2 x 6's on the big areas then chink over that. I'll know how that works next week. The Missus' wants it got on and finished so's she can be using it. Im kinda planning on using it to eat in when we have our annual dove hunt this fall(if we have a dove hunt this fall....) The Fellas (Marice~ & Jose') have promised to help chink. We all know what kind of help they are. Having said that, Im looking forward to shooting Tree Rats off the porch! Just something about it ought to feel right.

    Me, Maggie, & Stuff'......
