We had another meeting for which we cleaned and arranged the YCC building once again. Alewives are being released back into the St. Croix River, some-thing people have been wanting for some time.
A big tear in one of the seats in the fifteen passenger van needed repairing. The tear was made with a saw by a careless YCC kid last summer and the stitching was pulling out.
The van had a dead battery and would not start, so, I started out trying to sew in a dark garage without my GLASSES. Wallace to the rescue. We could not find the battery at first...it happens to be underneath the vans sliding door!!!
This is what it looked like half-way through the job. Now in the light with my EYES, I was able to sew it up to my satisfaction. I hope this summer the kids will be a little more responsible. We have six of them coming soon.
Below are the two YCC cabinets I said I would show you when we got through putting them together.
On the left is one of my favorite gift shops to visit. Can you see why? We left with a pound of fudge, cheesecake swirl and maple nut. I surely did not need that, but then, what the heck. I'll diet tomorrow. HA!
We really went there to buy an ornament for our little Christmas tree...thank you Karen for getting me started on THAT. We have just started buying ornaments that remind us of the state or place we have worked or visited.
We now have Texas, Maine and Tennessee so far.
Wallace just had to have this cap.
I told you about Bill Kolodnicki getting married. He is the project leader and our supervisor here at Moosehorn NWR.
They are a beautiful couple. We wish them the best!!!
A drive on the refuge produced these sightings...
Do you see the Snapping Turtle?
A Green Heron.
And a moose...just for you Judy Bell!!! You ask, we produce.
Our first Pitcher Plant for the season.
Until next time...
