good fences make good neighbors?

one of the reasons that it's a little quieter than usual around here is that any available "free" time is spent trying to cram in a bunch of summer projects before fall and winter. projects like putting in 150 feet of fencing. if you're thinking about a fencing project yourself and maybe - like myself - it has been a few years since you've done it, don't kid yourself. it's a lot more work than you remember, even when you have the conveniences of a powered auger and a couple of young, strapping strapping farm boys.

i don't really know if good fences make good neighbors, but it sure does make for a happy malamute who no longer has to be on a lead when he's outside ( malamutes are notoriously untrainable when it comes to staying in yards and not chasing down cats and squirrels and whatnot ). and it works nicely as a toddler containment system :-)

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
