Fixing Fionn’s Summer Fun

29 Nov

We’re still pretty cold here, but I don’t think it’s going to get any warmer.  I’ve got to get ready for winter for the goats.

Since it wasn’t too bad today, and my nephew Chris is home for Thanksgiving, we decided to work on fixing Fionn’s summer fun.

See, he’s a lot like his grandpa Goliath.  He likes to beat on walls and bust them out.

I had already put a piece of plywood over part of it last year, but that wasn’t a solid enough fix.

My dad and nephew and I worked hard today, and we got plywood put up to at least block the wind out.  Hopefully, it’s a much better job than I did last time.

Hopefully, the way we did it, Fionn won’t just bust them out again.

I’m sure they’ll appreciate actually having walls when the winter weather truly arrives.
