Heritage of the Land
Last week my grandson James helped me place grave markers on James Dewberry and Jane Graben Dewberry's graves. They are my grandsons' great, great, great, great grandfather and grandmothers. James is a family name that goes way back. They worked and took care of the land and now we get our turn in this thing called time.
James and his little sister Eden had a fun time learning about where they came from. It was a rainy day but we got it done and had fun doing it. They have many other ancestors in this resting place.
Nathan helped me with bush hogging roads and firelanes. It takes several days to complete but it was good to have him helping me. He is young and can do much more than I.
Taking care of the land. Here engineers are laying out a stream crossing in our forest to help keep the water clean for the drinking water. We hope to complete this project in the near future. I warned the workers to watch for our many rattlers on the property.
This one got in the way while we were bush hogging. We skinned it out and plan on adding its skin to our exhibits in the lodge.
