It's funny how, when you get planning a big event in your life, you start to connect the dots.  While on Jekyll Island in Georgia today, Pamela said "This is the kind of fence I want.  Can you make it?"

"Sure," I said.  "You split the rails and I'll build it."

We also saw this guy along the bike path.

He's an Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake.  Thankfully lethargic due to the chilly 65 degree temperature.


  1. Love the fence - keep the snake. Saw enough of those in Vietnam to last a lifetime! Stretch

  2. Dave,

    I love listening to Radio Classics on the Serious radio in my truck when I'm traveling to jobs. Yesterday I was listening to a Mystery Theater, a story that takes place in Bleecker, NY, 1947... Seem like an old farmer get some eggs from the Bleecker General store that contain nitro glisten. He calls the famed detective "Boston Blacky" to solve the mystery. Great story, I've never heard of Bleecker NY before your blog and now this story appears, how cool is that? I'd tell you how the story turns out, but its better if you find a copy of it. You can try Greg Bell the host of the program (http://www.gregbellmedia.com/).

    1. Wow! How cool is that? A tiny place like Bleecker, with a population of less than 1,000 people in 1947.
