Lopstick, a once humming (wasps and neighbors) hub of trailer improvement projects in spring, is empty of activity. Neighbor sightings are sparse, and even the woodland creatures (save for a few bunnies) are still deep in the forest. My prepper neighbor was kind enough...

A couple days ago, I woke to was sounded like tree branches falling on the roof. When I finally ventured outside, I found this:

A branch on top of the snow-covered compost pile. Then I saw this:

My next-door-neighbor (in theory) is still missing. And in her absence, someone (or something) flipped up sections of her trailer skirt! Now the trailer has a another front and back door. It takes quite a bit of effort to flip a section of trailer skirt... unless the f...

The high topped out at 60 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday, and when I stepped out onto my backyard I found these! Seems the heat is not only coming down from the Sun, but also up from inside the Earth... And it's fizzuring out through these steamy, bulging holes. And the...

The Temperature Tease melts the frosted ground and promises months-in-the-making Tempties of garden-spawned goodness... but 'tis a Temporary Tease... until springtime bursts forth in morning glory!

In the meantime, I'm envisioning glowing red orbs of the world's most pe...

A quiet week in Lopstick, nary a chirping bird (that I've heard), nor a creaking tree branch in the winter wind. The neighbors are even quieter than usual. Then again, even with the sun shining bright, I've not ventured out in the cold to make my rounds. Sheenan is sti...
