Finally, construction has started on the road to and the foundation of the Senior Residence.
Site of Sr Residence

The sod has been removed from where the foundation of the building will be (in front of the pickup). The pickup is sitting in the center of what will be a circular drive for the entry to the residence. The pine tree will be removed.

The road through the woods to the center is shown above.

We had a fence built across the front of the property. It is now complete… still needs to be painted. Some found fault because it only has 3 horizontal bars. It’s purpose is to keep cars out, not to keep pecan trees in!

On March 29th the wisteria was blooming under the bird house… and the bees were busy!

Making a Cut in the Dam

We’re draining down the lake somewhat to work on the dam. We’ve put a serious dent in the beaver population… but there are still more… damming up our cut in the dam. The largest beaver trapped so far was 80 lb!

We’re tearing out an old barbed wire fence to replace it with a new one. We’re preparing the field on the back side of the fence for 3 horses.
