Marty's hunny-do-list




A couple weeks ago we had fierce winds blow through Wasilla. Very abnormally fierce winds. It was a good excuse for me to lock the doors, start a fire, and be cozy in my little house.

The small shed in the picture had its lid ripped off and peeled back like a tin can. In order to get into the shed you can either get into it from the small door, or by lifting up that big heavy lid (which WAS on hinges). It takes most of my strength and momentum just to prop it open. Thats how I know it weighs between 60 and 70 pounds (obviously, my arms aren't buff or built).

It WAS closed tight and secure. I can't believe the wind got under it and ripped it back and off it's hinges like that.

I know this wasn't your idea of a Christmas gift Marty, haha - sorry I can't move it or fix it for you.

I bet he'll be happy to fix that if he can just be home for Christmas.

Yep I'm busted. LOL.... From your pictures in this post Marty really does have a lot of work to do.

I refreshed the page until I found a WV I liked - short!
Did Marty not take care of this short list - the reason this post is still up for 2 months? He had better fix it this trip home. Oxen pee, I hear, has supernatural powers - like badger milk!
