Jeanne is so happy, the thermometer read fifty today and is predicted to be seventy by Sunday, she reacted by hauling her plant pots out of the garage and has been fiddling with them all day.
The job for me, called for to balance out her activity, was to move a large milling machine from our basement into the garage. About thirty feet was all I had to move it but it weighs a ton, literally, two thousand pounds give or take. Five years ago I kept it as the only machine from our old business thinking I could use it, and I have but now it doesn’t go with the decor. So inch by inch out it went using a crowbar and some rollers for my high tech method. My next job will be plowing up a spot for a vegetable garden, but that can wait a week.
This weekend the boat gets uncovered, that’s a sure sign of spring. Another is the mosquito that’s been flying around the house… doesn’t take long for them to come alive.
Our town of Ira recently organized an historical society. We got involved and have high hopes for the group. For one of the smaller towns in Vermont, Ira has a long rich history, some that has been recorded and much yet to be discovered.
We have lived here for thirty-two years and love the place. It will be interesting to be a part of the new society’s progress. A very extensive website is online: http://www.iravhs.com/history.html
