Farm Life

The boys had fun helping Joe this afternoon in preparing the well for cold(er) weather!

Willie, the dog, likes to hang around his people!

But the big excitement was the burning of tumbleweeds!
Some people shovel snow (which we did for years), but here in Arizona
we burn the tumbleweeds that accumulate around the fences during the fall.

It's very dramatic and exciting!
We rake them into a big pile and then Joe uses the Red Dragon to set it
all ablaze!

As the sun began to set, the flames were more vibrant - the boys thought
it was all great fun!

We didn't get them all burned by any means, but
we certainly got a a good start!
