Alert Readers will recall that it was one year ago today that Master and Momma came home from work to discover that our local fire department had come to call because our barn looked like this!
And the next day when the sun came out it looked like this! Eeesh!
What a mess! We were even on the news. Hehehe. That video has the fiyah mahshall speaking Bawston.
Master had built the barn himself when he and Momma moved to the estate 12 years ago and was so sad because not only was it a fine building, but it had a lifetime's worth of tools and stuff inside that were all gone. The good news is that we were all OK and nothing bad happened to our house.
Pretty soon, a big monster machine came and ate what was left of the barn because it was a "total loss."
Naturally, I, Mango, was ready to lend a paw with the reconstruction.
But it was frustrating at times given that Master put a fence up around the constructions site.
I was really worried when I saw that my simple minded Master had accidentally built the new walls flat on the ground.
So I set out some tool time bait and in no time had attracted enough manly men to do a barn raising.
The walls went up fast and Master was able to start replacing the big equipment.
I continued to be quite vocal in my directions for proper building techniques even when I had to yell!
Jarrod and Evil Rick did a lot of the heavy lifting what with Master being ancient and whatnot.
Even Hector helped out.
We had lots of nice weather for Jarrod to do his painting.
I like that Jarrod dude. We are totally pals.
Now the upstairs of the new barn is a nice storage area.
Master has all new equipment which Jarrod and Mickey helped him arrange just so.
See? Good as new!
And this is what the barn looks like today! I spend a lot of time in there assisting Master and absorbing the heat from the wood stove.
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
