With a little help from our friends

Last Thursday David had severe shortness of breath. We went to the emergency room. Diagnosis – congestive heart failure. We are taking this one step at a time. Next month he will get a difibrulator.

In the meantime, the grass continues to grow. Several of Dave’s shooting buddies and ex co-workers showed up without our asking and dug in. I think the hardest job all day was convincing Dave to sit down and take a break.

That was yesterday. Today while Dave and I were at doctor appointments, Larry surprised us by uncovering a large chunk of the pond. I am giddy with delight.

What a difference!
What a difference!

The dock is about 6 feet above the current water level but it is in surprisingly good shape.

  1. Wow! Look at the rocks! I was picturing a little dock as I’ve been reading, and there it is!

    You find out who your friends are…so nice to have help doing this. That is so wonderful. I’ll come help pull cat tails. Lol I’m good at painting… I’m just saying.
