Happy Victoria Day to all you Canadians (sorry, no holiday for you Yankees and Confederates)

We were out at the property with several friends today. Things have since slowed down.. Here are some pictures of us after a late dinner.

New fold down counter space on the back of the murphy bed. We've already put plenty of mileage on it, even though it was only installed this afternoon. That cabinet is also on the back-side of the murphy bed. We use it for towels, wash clothes, underwear, Triscuits... Anything that doesn't care about being flipped on it's head. I also managed to close in the plumbing, water tank and filters.





Where'd all the floor space go??

Haha.. thanks Tango.

To anyone who noticed: yes, all of our dogs are the same colour. No, none of them are related. All pound pups. And I swear we're not dog-racist.. It was just chance that they all ended up matching. We like other coloured dogs, too..

I never thought about using dogs for rugs. Looks great!

Holy bus & Tango....great responses.

We have 3 dogs also and both responses are right on. They tend to be a little bumpy as rugs but do make wonderful foot and bed warmers.



They look like they could be litter mates they resemble each other so.

This conversation took me down a path I didn't expect. My daughter inlaw has a cowhide rug that is beautiful. Next season, I may ask my son to keep his deer hides for the bus. They would make great area rugs, add color to the grey floor and be a soft alternative to manufactured area rugs.

Got a small deck slapped together the other day!

Best part: it was made from deck scraps leftover from a real sized deck
