The work space is still in use for the gas pipeline. When we negotiated the contract we set the base-price for initial use of the space, plus two weeks of work. The land-man we were dealing with said they only needed this space for "a couple weeks" and that it would be a "very short process". That is why we said they could use the space for two weeks.
We weren't as concerned with what they would be doing as how long we'd have to look at it. As I've mentioned, we are enjoying sunsets on the back porch now that the weather is warmer. Looking at the sunset also involves looking at the heavy equipment in the hayfield. Not the bucolic view I'm used to.
Those checks are making the heavy equipment a lot easier to look at!
And those checks are turning into our "Farmer's Vacation" fund. So, I sit on the back porch and dream about where we should go.
Do you have any suggestions? We want to go on a good vacation, or two, or three...! It will just depend how long those pipeliners camp out in the hayfield. We're just really hoping they're gone by the time we have to cut the hay!
