The lake has opened up and the loons are back.  We heard our first loons a couple of days ago.  There was supposed to be a poser in this picture on the dock….. I swear he knew before going to the lake that I would ask him to pose out on the dock because he would not come down the steps and when he did he kept out of range.  Who could this chicken dressed up like a dog be…….


Ummm… no I know what you are up to with that camera and the ice is gone and my paws are staying on ground.  No docks and certainly not stepping out nom the raft


So imagine a golden retriever sun bathing on the raft.  The sun was as scarce as the golden retriever.  Raft is ready for a coat of paint as soon as the sun dries it out and 2 boys make it home from college.  Only a week and a half and Ben and Grant will be home for summer.  


Dock parts waiting for a warmer day as well to go in the water


Sock machine news.  This 1924 machine will be the first of my rehabbed machines for sale starting next week.  It is running really well.  A few more tweaks and it will be out in the office for sale.  If you are interested in buying a sock machine I will have 4 of them for sale from 1920 – 1924 all Gearharts ready to make socks.  Contact me at for more info.  All machines will come with a sock making lesson
