Let's Keep Moving

November 4, 2017:  We had another volunteer today, his name is Paul Fortier from Woodbury.  He was a hard worker!  We needed to reseed a lot of the area that we seeded due to some washout from the rain.  This time we came with bigger guns, so to speak.  We had some straw that comes in rolls that you put down on top of the grass seed.  We held it down with staples that we put in the ground and small rocks to keep it from blowing away on a windy day.  This seems to be a good solution, so let's hope for the best.

Grass seed down, one more time.  I think this time, we have a solution.
Special thanks to Paul for his time and work. It was a pleasure getting to know you.

Until next time:  Persistence: continuing firmly or obstinately in a course of action in spite of difficulty of opposition. source  I have learned that sometimes persistence is the only way you can be successful.  I hope your day is forward, not sideways, not backwards, but forward.  We can all use a second chance sometimes.  With a little persistence, we might just get that second chance.
