This morning Chance and I got up before dawn and took off to the Hubbard Prairie. My Dad would be finding a surprise when he got to work around 7:30 AM..did you know it is barely light at that time of the morning?
We arrived before anyone else..Chance ran around willy nilly..I think he was confused..he could catch the familiar scents of people he knows but he couldn’t find anyone.
Today he has a climate controlled cab..I think this Cat has about every perk you can get except for possibly TV. He will be out of the wind and the rotten weather..it is bound to rain and snow one of these days. He told me that he would be chasing stumps all day today..I think that meant that he would be lining up stumps in windrows..
My Dad sure enjoys his work..he told me once that he would still be able to run a Cat when he was a hundred years old..he only has sixteen more years to go. Then he not so gently reminded me that when he is a hundred..I would be seventy five. We are not even going there..
The week before last when I was out there one day, Hunter was grubbing out stumps, so naturally I took his photo..he is married to my niece Katie and they have the twin boys who are going to Kindergarten this year and Aubrey who is too little for school yet and they live next door. Hunter enjoys running a Cat too..but I wonder does he enjoy it as much as my Dad..probably not..I don’t know of anyone who enjoys his work as much as he does:)
