Ok..we worked pretty much all day Saturday, where these photos came from and then added more yesterday. Somewhere around the embedded tree, I snapped and refused to continue unless there was nobody in the state of Texas who would do this happily for a fee. I'm old and my husband is older and it was somewhat unsettling seeing him with one foot on our rickety ladder and the other on the fence behind us with the chain link fence positioned in an area not conducive to good health if he slipped. I was pretty cranky and adamant about the whole thing.
The fence guy is coming by today to see if his fencers can take care of the rest. I'd hope someone half my age and somewhat stronger could manage this if they want our business. Having new fencing put in is not an inexpensive undertaking. And Amber Star, although would finish this task if needed, is tired of working like a field hand so her husband can save a few dollars. There is nothing wrong with working like a field hand and field hands produce that which I love...food and cotton and stuff. And many times in the past I have worked very hard at very weird tasks when money truly was an issue, but dang there comes a time to be cherished and February is that month.
