    North East Winter Fun 20/21

    My Amish landlord friend where I keep my floatplane spent all summer building his own home. Works a 60 hr week and then came home and built his house. Big deal today, first time having church at his place. I'm really proud and happy for him and his family. Great job Freeman.

    Glenn, I can’t tell in the pics but do they unhitch their buggy horses and tie them up in the barn? Looks like a packed driveway! “Stay in the buggy” is what a famous old race horse trainer use to always tell me......

    A couple days before they gather at someone's home the enclosed " church wagon" and a couple flatbed steel wheel wagons show up. The church wagon has all the benches and other items. The flat bed wagons get loaded with loose hay for the horse smorgasbord. If you look to the left of the little barn you can see the wagons and horses.

    Dave I helped after work when I could. Setting floor joist, flooring and setting trusses. I went down to be his grunt but he made me pound some nails too. Some times it was just better if I stayed out of the way. Was alot of fun.

    We have very little snow so far this year.....the good news is...ice is forming good and solid. Last year we had 2 storms around Thanksgiving that dumped 20+ inches each time and many storms after that....made for slushy crappy lake conditions

    A couple of years ago I bought some used Trick air skis for my project....I made up some removeable brackets instead of welding permanent ones to my gear. I tested them on my J3 and they work fine....the Trick air's are not stellar in slush and deep snow, but it's nice on the runway and moving in and out of the hangar. I modified the brackets to allow use of my Aero classic 8.50 s after these photos. Don't worry though....I didn't fly my certified Cub with them on

    One of the local farmers daughters came home from Idaho to be with her family at Christmas. She teaches at a Christian Academy. She took this awesome snow dog picture late yesterday afternoon of their family farm

    I think this one is Christmas card worthy other than the clown in the bottom left corner

    From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be
    found in all corners of the earth."

    Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
