Halloween Hayride/Festival 2021

We had a picture-perfect day for our Hayride and Fall Festival today. Many thanks to Valencia, Charles, and their crew for such an enjoyable event.

Brush Begone!

Most mornings I walk past and admire a neighbor’s acreage located right here in our neighborhood. Taylor Burns owns about 30 acres at the east end of Copperoaks, most of which is heavily wooded. Recently I stopped to watch a man on Taylor’s property using a grinder to sharpen the blades of a tractor attachment I’d never seen before. At the end of my walk, I went back by to watch, at a distance, as he cleared some of the heavy undergrowth from Taylor’s land. He would raise the Tecon mulcher on the arms of his Bobcat T76, and then, with the cutting blades rotating, he would lower them onto small trees and heavy brush which would be reduced to mulch. If you’ve never seen one of these in action, click the link below and fast forward about seven minutes.

And here you can see the results.

October 5th: Ice Cream Social

Always nice to have an occasion to meet new neighbors, visit with old friends, and watch the children play.
