This week’s recap of Red Dirt In My Soul covers only January 8 – January 10, 2021. Ranchlife continues with the grandkids enjoying some fresh snow and sledding at my house. “Lookout below!” A frosty morning captures my camera lens and I have to take multiple photos of the delicate patterns on windows and weeds. The corn feeder gets a modification. I ride along to help Vernon hang five gates on the new section of fence he’s been working on last winter and this one. The gates are left chained open to help wildlife move through, though tracks of any kind were hard to spot. We also hung two weights on the fence using old heavy pieces of scrap metal. They’re easier to get this time of year instead of frozen rocks. They will help keep the wire and posts in place where otherwise, the tight wire may be pulling upward on them. Reduce, reuse, recycle! The trip out was a bit exciting, you had to have enough speed to get through the snow, miss the deep ruts and tree branches, and go on the narrow trail.Find me here!
