Small progress

A few minutes ago, I just finished making my way around the outside of my fence.  Just before that, I'd made a pass around the inside, mostly cleaning up stuff that had fallen in from my work in the last couple of days from the outside.  It's not quite all done -- still a few things that need the saw.  But it's a lot better than it's been in years.

I'll remark to the world that my opinion of welded wire on T posts for fencing just keeps getting better.  I put this fence in 20 years ago June.  I chose these materials because they were far and away cheaper than the alternatives, with the thought that if I got ten years out of it, I'd be more ready to afford something more permanent.  In 20 years, the fence has only been compromised at all in one place, where a large tree came down on it a couple of years ago.  I haven't gotten a chainsaw to remove that, but I actually think that when I do, I'll be able to bend the fence back into place.  The wire is rusty of course, but not rusted away anywhere, and it hasn't broken for any of the smaller trees and branches that have fallen on it.
