Around the House 
Thanksgiving went well here. Pat cooked dinner and Joe and I found something for our main meal instead of turkey. Nancy's mom had made us two pumpkin pies, so we had a wonderful dessert. Tom also came over for dinner.
I didn't take any pictures then, so these below are actually a little older.
Tom, Pat, and I went to work on Friday to finish moving machines (it was the only day he could get a truck to move the machines to the new jobsite). We woke up to about 6 inches of snow. It's been snowing on and off all weekend.


Here I am playing guitar on our bed in our basement room.

Joe was helping Nancy with her work in the office a little.

Pat was stocking the firewood that's up near the house.

Moving Day 
Well, we started moving to a new jobsite today. It's further down the highway, but the gate we drive in through is very close to the highway. So, less driving time on dirt road. :)
We finished up the job we were on within a couple hours this morning and then started to get stuff taken care of to move. Pat and Dennis (he runs the clipper which walks around on the hillside clipping trees) went to the new jobsite where the clipper already was while Jesse, Tom and I started to move the yarder and delimber. Unfortunately, during our walk the yarder lost its track in the middle of the road. It came off the front guide wheel. Fortunately the truck driver was up loading logs so we called him on the radio to tell him to use his phone to try calling Pat. We tried to put the dumb thing back on from at least 2:00 to 6:00. They finally got the yarder off the road in a nearby widespot and are going to work on it tomorrow when there's daylight to help.
During all this, Dennis was at the new jobsite and apparently ended up having a problem with his machine. He was stuck there doing nothing from 2:30 until I picked him up at 5:45ish.
Fun, exciting day.....

Work Last Thursday 
Last Thursday we had a nice mess in the cable that goes down the mountain. Pat got to try to straighten it out, which didn't go so well. They ended up having to unroll the entire drum of cable.
We have gotten some snow up at the job, but it hasn't been staying very long.

The Cats 
The house has two cats. They stay outside most of the year, but now they're inside since it's getting chilly out. The cats were named after the couple that gave Pat and Nancy them. They can be really annoying. They like attention.


The is Cleo and Joe. Joe wasn't expecting his picture to be taken right then

The is Brad. She drools.

The House 
I thought I would take some pictures of the house and where the RV is. Notice the storm clouds.... yeah,, we've been very rainy here the last couple days. We haven't even had the logging trucks come up to the new site yet because the road is very slick and muddy from all the rain.


The house (yes, the mailbox is a cow, unfortunately it lost its head).

The RV is parked behind the house by Pat and Nancy's fancier RV.
