Here is the delivery of the CAT D8 Bulldozer to the vineyard property yesterday morning.
You have no idea how much this picture excites me. This piece of machinery is so big the men who were there to control traffic couldn’t get anyone to pass. People stayed and parked because it was like a special event taking place and they were not going to miss it.
Gawd I love country people. Everyone has time to just sit and watch a dozer unload off a truck. Love it. Love it.
Here’s Willie with his dozer. He is doing all the land clearing for us. We love him. He is the NICEST guy you could ever meet. He has a deep Southern-like drawl, although he’s lived in Oregon his whole life. Interesting huh?
Ladies, he’s single…..I’m just sayin’.
These piles are stumps of Douglas Fir that were recently logged. They will be burned in the next few days. I’m starting to like these heavy equipment shots, how about you?
Hmmm, this vineyard is quite the project. Here’s one of the trees Willie pushed over with his dozer. Now he needs to cut it into a million little pieces. Fun.
Yes, these are bear tracks. Apparently there is a mama with her two cubs roaming the land. We will try to keep out of their way.
I’m not sure if this tree made it through the rest of the day, as Willie was still clearing when this picture was taken. I doubt it will make it through tomorrow. Sorry tree.
And this is the beginning of my vineyard. Pinch me.
I love this stained glass hurricane lamp. It casts a beautiful orange glow over the room when a candle is lit from the inside. It stands a foot tall and has its place in the entryway of my home.
This is the best picture I could get when lit up. Enjoy the glow….
