In 1967 my cousin Dwight was just a little shaver.
He is the oldest son of my Uncle Dennis ( my Mom's brother) and Aunt Judy. He now runs his Dad and Mothers construction company. He got the contract to build our new road.
One day we stopped to say Hi and Dwight came over for a hug. That is his Cat to the left...no one touches his Cat.
The road is coming along, the old highway was built on black dirt...so there has been quite a bit of excavation to renew the base .
We have a new corner now.
Our old corner on the left the new corner on the right.
We add a few extra minutes onto our drive to town and our vehicle is dusty most of the time. But progress is being made on the road. The ditches are deeper than they were before and the highway up higher so the snow should blow off the road instead of collect in drifts.
Hopefully the road will be paved before winter. After all the dirt work is done a paving company will come in and blacktop the road.
