I hope you keep feeling more gooder until you are the most bestest.

Today the lake bottom should be dry enough to let me get down in there and start building the fish habitat from that old picket fence. That should fill in most of the day but first I have to go to Ace Hardware and get some straight couplings for 2" PVC pipe so I can rebuild the water line from the water well to the lake. Amazing! In my 5-gallon bucket of 2" fittings I have every coupling, valve and connector known to man except for the one that I need. I really didn't want to go to town today but there's no way round it.

Hi all, my son and I made it to the cabin on Thursday. After we left the freeway it became a miserable ride up, the truck was loaded to capacity pulling a trailer, it felt like I rowed the truck up there I changed gears so many times. Friday morning we got out there at first light and it took about 8 hours to get the container off of the truck on the poles, welded up and cemented in. Saturday was a different story, we worked from first light until dark. I got all the panels bolted to the frames, 14 holes in each one to drill and bolt x6 panels and 2 holes on each panel frame support while my son installed the ramp then cleaned up. Next trip I will get the panel cables terminated in the charge controller breaker box as well as the charging leads hooked to the batteries. I should also have time to get the 110v cable hooked up between the container and the cabin. Then we are done with that project for a while. Next up there I have to get the spring water line and water tank replaced, that is at least a 2 trip project. In the mean time I bought a small water tank that fits in the truck bed so I have some type of water temporarily. Tomorrow back on the mini mini van.

Nothing for the next couple of days!
Update on THE situation -
As of August 24th we have lost 18 of our residents to SARS-CoV2 or complications of.
Things seem to be slowing way down, thank God.
Right now we have 7 active cases, all are asymptomatic.

Two are more than likely not going to make it.
They are back with us from university hospital and on hospice after a very long battle.

We are continuing testing now for staff every Monday Wednesday and Friday until we get no more positives.
After 7 times testing, I've been negative.
This includes the rapid return test that involves swabbing and solution droplets- which takes 15 minutes for a result.
There is a sense of relief that can be felt.
Certainly not the hellish situation like 2 weeks ago.

What Jim said!

I came back to camp yesterday by myself to get a few things done that's just too hard to do on the weekend with 35 kids(feels like) coming in and out of our site.

That, and today is the first day of bird hunting so I brought out the side by side. Been up since 4am (my back is feeling the fall weather and temperature change). A buddy from camp is coming out today and we will be hunting all afternoon. But I will go on my own this morning. Bringing the chainsaw to clear any down fall on the trails as I haven't been on them since last year.

Went on a 250 mile day trip with a friend, her sister and 91 year old mother. It's always fun. The mom always loves the day trips at her age. They buy the lunches and I pay for the gas.

I'm on the Avoca, Iowa Planning and Zoning Committee. We FINALLY approved the Motel 6 owner's request to change one acre of his land from commercial to residential so he can build a home on it. He wants to live next to the hotel so he can be close by because he's basically on call 24/7. It really pisses me off that they fought with him about in for over a month. I hate it when people abuse their authority.

The head of th Urban Renewal Committee asked me if I'd be a member of that one too. I don't know how long I'm going to live here but I accepted.

I'm going to the gym and then into Council Bluffs to help a Veteran buddy who is in a wheelchair. He has done a lot for Veterans and other people in the community. I asked the mayor if he there is some kind of award or recognition he could publically give my buddy. He said there is so we are putting it together.
