Ah Doc, I don't feel that way at all. I was just trying to be funny. I think even my kids and grandkids are a little dubious as to what we are doing. We/they have it so easy, I was hoping they could come see
what is is like to work for just living, ha.
Actually, hope to make it a very welcoming place to friends and family.
Lady Di ~ I will never take this for granted and realize this blessing came from God and hope to give back through it.

Back at the cabin 2019. Not a lot done except weed whacking our way thru 4 ' weeds, or so we thought until a local that lives near and came by to say 'Hello' said casually, 'Yeah, that is sweet clover there that the pioneers planted and plowed under to add nitrogen to the soil, and this is 'Pigweed' or bloodroot, you can eat it as it is full of vitamins, and this is Wild Dill and he preceded to show us how you dig up the root and eat it. It tastes like radish, but gets sweeter if you let it dry. And this he said, is 'Chinese lettuce or Opium lettuce. Great for joint pain, headaches and myriad of other uses. He went on and this is Wild Chicory. If you need a treat in pick on of the flowers and eat like candy. Here is Timothy grass which rabbits and horses love, and then Orchard grass to keep erosion from happening.
I was in awe and tried writing everything down. My daughter quickly drew pictures with descriptions. It gave me much more respect for those 'weeds'!

Jada ruined our trip somewhat. She disappeared down the slope and did not come when called and that was strange as she is usually the first one to make appearance at a whistle for she wants a 'Treat'.
I was starting to get worried, when I could barely see her coming with head held high as if carrying something. Oh yeah, it wasn't a rabbit as I first thought, but a 'Skunk'! My first experience with that and I could not remember what I was suppose to do. She would not let go of her prize and every time she started to drop it at our command, the other dogs would converge on her prize and she would quickly pick it up and run with it. It was mayhem city. Finally got it and txt my daughter to look up a remedy for the stink. She said, hydrogen peroxide, dish soap and vinegar. The only thing I had was Dawn soap so I smeared it all over her and doused her with glacier well water. At that point I didn't care if she froze for a bit. It helped a bit. Then I saw I had a bottle of listerine that I keep for bug bites, and I poured the whole thing over her. It really did help. She was in so much disgrace.

We have started the deck - pic for you Doc...and hope to put deck planks on the deck frame this weekend.

The Tetons were particularly beautiful - sending photo and of course the sunset up there are always our reward after a hard day, so had to include one of those.

Some have ask how it was going, so I decided to give an update. If we ever get this accomplished, I will have an open house with my DT friend and Dobers invited.

Beaumont67 had listed a cure for skunk smell on another thread -
Quote:
We found an amazing product, to combat the skunk smell - link is from Canada, just be aware.
https://www.amazon.ca/Mary-Ellen-Pro...gateway&sr=8-2

^^ AtmosKlear is also great for sewer backup & basement flood damage / used car flippers, use it to remove cig. smell in interiors.
I tried the link and didn't seem to work - maybe this one https://www.amazon.com/s?k=atmosklea...l_4xhgr2p0e8_e

So if still remains after the listerine maybe that will work

Wow amazing cabin and view!

Thx Modm. I wonder which product it is? A lot came thru and most for urine type odors? Jada was stinkless enough to ride home and then I bathed her with something I had not used before called,
Triclosan Deodorizing Shampoo. It did work and she has only a slight smell now when wet. Thx for the link.

Tough on Odors
Gentle on Living Creatures
Works on Contact
Non-toxic Formula
Biodegradable

And says it is gentle on living creatures

Absolutely beautiful! Man on man what a party that will be...........loved the story of the neighbor educating you on the worth of your weeds. Oh to be that earth wise! When I was younger wanted to work for the forestry department.........should have done that!!! Office work and cubicles pay the bills of which I am thankful.....BUT ......boy oh boy to view this frequently is only a dream for me..........you both have worked very hard and deserve this beauty.............enjoy ! And thanks again for sharing these things with us ....did you ever decide on which stove/heat you were going to install.....I think that is where you left off on last years shopping list...........

Aw Doc, no that is my most remarkable husband. We just celebrated this month 55 yrs together. He just looks pretty rough after wrestling lumber all day with only me as help. He really can dress it up nicely.
