This is the pile of wood that came out of the bed.
I have given up fighting old bolts out of tight places and am using the grinder to remove the old rusty ones. I am glad that you weren't here to hear me say shucky darn or something worse when I bumped my sore knuckle on the bed of the truck. Mostly I just removed some skin but it does tend to turn my blue glove purple when I bang it hard enough.
Every summer we have a bunch of walnut caterpillars show up and make a mess. here is one of them on the picnic table.
They gang up on the trees and eat branches down to the bare stems.
Barb had us scheduled for a Road Scholar program back east in October. My plans were east of the Mississippi and north of the Mason Dixon line in the fall. She met that criteria. It is a short program in some park. Should give her a good chance to take some great photos.
