Hidden treasures amid the blackberry vines

Lee has been making steady and slow progress removing blackberry vines by our house. This is a before picture.

These are some after pictures.

But, you can’t have a cleanup job around here without finding some hidden treasure. Somebody needs to think of a story that somehow ties these items all together.

A one armed teddy bear.

One pry bar.

One ski pole.

One ski glove and one bottle of baby oil.

And last but not least, two balls. (What? Did you think we could do a cleanup project without finding a ball?”

    What a difference! Reminds me of cleaning up our place. unfortunately our “treasures” were more along the lines of beer cans and booze bottles, though Dan did find a perfectly good weed eater in the mess.

    Ok, the teddy bear was out skiing with gloves on and was attacked by the mad soccer ball player with a prybar. The teddy bear lost an arm in the process, the crazy soccer fan took off with the 1 arm, leaving the teddy bear, who healed himself by putting magical baby oil on his wounds.

    Hey who knew you had a field back there? Looks good, and just in time for BBQ! ­čÖé

    Leigh – Wow, we didn’t really find any tools on our property except one rusted hand plane. I don’t believe we found any alcohol bottles really either. Lots and lots of soda though!

    Lynn – Hey, you won! (Sorry, there really wasn’t a prize though.) This might not be the best basis for a children’s story. Maybe Aesop’s Fables. Those were pretty gory.

    Charity – Yeah, it’s getting there. I have one last section to do (and some overgrown field fencing to remove) and then it will be pretty much clear.
