There's no place like home.

There's no place like home.
Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

Sometimes our work.......backfires!

Last night the guys put the post-hole digger on the tractor so they could drill some holes.  Ian is trying to set up an arena for Melissa.  She has this horse that needs to be broken.

The first couple of holes went fine.  Doug ran the tractor with Ian and Matthew on the bar helping the auger along.  The ground around here is awfully hard since it has been such a dry spring.

Layn made things a little more difficult by trying to put the dirt back into the holes.  Boys will be boys you know.

Then the inevitable happened.  Inevitable I say because this is a farm and the equipment is older and well used.  Oh, did I mention that this farm is in Upstate New York?  The auger hit a rock, more than once. Broke on of the tips right off and took a chunk out of the other one.

Just in case you thought you were going to get your arena soon Melissa, not! Just in case you thought your plans were made for tomorrow, Ian, not! 
We did have a good time while it lasted though.
