More fencing to do

Not much new going on here that's for sure.

Our daughter Coral is now over in Afghanistan :(

The surgery on my foot went well and I am sitting here with it in the air.  Supposed to keep off of it.  So I have been knitting and reading etc.  Finished a pair of fingerless mitts and a cowl.

Dave is up working on the back fence, putting up new fence and tearing out the old.

Last Saturday he had some help late morning until around 5 or so.
