The elm tree comes down

Today Ryan is taking down the big elm tree between our shop and our lean-to. Our neighbor, Cornie, came over to help and the two of them are working away with chain saws. You can also see the back end of our "new" truck, a '94 F150. 

The latest thing to die in our house was the water heater. So this year to date (the first year we've been here), we're up to the following things to die:
The well
The main electrical on the pole
The truck (a '92 chevy)
The water heater

I'm sure I'm missing something, but the bottom line is: save up cash when you buy a house!! Other than that, we're mostly just working to get ready for winter here. The few remaining turkeys and other animals are moving into the lean-to until March or so (the lean-to is the building in the picture). Two of the male ducks really don't get along well in close quarters, so we're actually hoping to get rid of one of them. We're down to 4 ducks now, and we'll see if we end up with baby ducklings at some point or not. If so, I'll post pictures!
