Has anyone out there missed me?

Well, I have certainly missed you!

Once again my dish was out of alignment and due to a couple of ‘snaff-oos’ it took better than a month to get someone out here to fix it.  But I’m back on the air waves now so look out!

I have so much to tell about all that has been going on but can only post a short note today as we have been surrounded on 3 sides by forest fires for the last 3 days and it looks like there will be more ‘fun and games’ today as they let 2 of the fires burn together – unfortunately that is right where some of our cattle are. 

But here are a few of my favorite photos from the last few days:

If you look really hard you can see our house right in the ‘crook’ of the backhoe arm.

I LOVE SLURRY BOMBERS!!!  THESE GUYS ARE MY HEROS!!!

AND HELICOPTER PILOTS RANK RIGHT UP THERE WITH THEM!!!

They have been dipping water from one of our stock dams and thankfully it is spring fed so the level hasn’t even begun to drop.  Check out this one.

That would definately give a person nightmares if you had never seen an air crane before.

And last but not least – don’t worry about Nadine – the guys are looking out for my little camper and this picture is definitely going into her ‘baby’ book.

God bless firefighters!
