Default Latest update on the floating monster bog on my lake.

https://mailchi.mp/391382d9b6da/upda...t?e=661470ae67
They had a heavy semi-wrecker loop the winch cable thru the bog and rip it into 3 smaller pieces.
I'm gonna swing over there today and see whats happening. Only about 1/2 mile from my shore.

A mountain lion roaming the prairie found a bull, killed it, and ate the entire bull. With a heavy belly, unable to walk, the lion laid in the tall grass moaning and roaring. Soon a hunter, attracted by the roaring, shot and killed the lion. Moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut!

Damn. !! I forgot they were going to start this work at 10:00 AM yesterday. I could have gone there.
But at some point they will be removing the rest of it this summer

Too bad it doesn't involve explosives.

Extra valuable lake shore property.

I was going to help, but forgot. Instead helped a neighbor split fire wood with my new splitter. Wonderful machine. Love it.
