Southern Man

Weekend Update

As anticipated Southern Man was able to spend most of the holiday weekend out at The Land, and just as the heat wave finally snapped. The RV's air-conditioning problem is finally resolved (the microwave oven and AC were wired to the wrong breakers) and between that and the cold front ("cold" being a relative term here) the RV was nice and cool every night. There was a bit of excitement with a mouse that first night but no others have been caught so perhaps that won't be a big problem (but there are always mice in the barn and as soon as Southern Man moves out there permanently there will be barn cats). A fair amount of progress was made on The Workshop and Southern Man cleared out a never-before-mowed section back by the lake in anticipation of moving some firewood piles back there. Southern Man is less suited for the full Walden experience than he thought so there is now a TV and video player in the RV, perched on a little Wal-Mart half-height shelf cut down to fit in the only open corner in the unit. And there is nothing like stepping outside at three in the morning to the dead calm of a crisp cool Southern night with a thousand stars glittering overhead and the only sound that of - the dang natural gas pumping station across the road. Well, you can't have everything, and that includes the subsurface rights to your own land.
