      The neighbors goats have been sticking their heads through the fence (field wire on top of 4 barbed wire strands) and munching on the June berry shrubs - really doing some damage.  So I added another layer - chicken wire this time - to keep their little noses out!

      So, of course, I thought of my friend.  Because 10 years ago, he was managing a property that had a forest fire come through.  Talk about bad luck!  That little vacation cabin burned to the ground.  But the outhouse was untouched - the flames just missed it.  Sheesh!!

      The fire killed all the junipers.  And we cut and loaded a couple truckloads of 'em.  Those are my fence posts - the very ones I was affixing the chicken wire to.  It's good to have those kinds of reminders and memories, I guess.  And I can promise you, I never got so sentimental about the fence posts while he was still alive!  So I was laughing at myself a little, too.

        that story, LOE. I'm betting some of your friend's spirit is in those posts, and that he was laughing at your sentimentality, right along with you.

        Take care.
