April 30, 1991

1 AM → discovered taht between 6PM (when walked to gate) and 12 PM (when Marni drove up) on 4/29 someone had knocked mailbox off its post, had smashed a vodka bottle against the gate, and had pulled a long shagbark hickory (1 going along road ~50 yards N. of gate) across the main road to obstruct it. Reported this vantalism to secruity + they came out this afternoon to take a report. (Report #XX-XXXX)

Spent 45' to replace mail box on post (cut a new baseboard). Post is cracked on strut & a little wobbly, but should be OK unless someone tries to knock it down again.

[April 29 → spent 45' walking around property and picking up trash]

2.5 hrs → mowed the lawn for the 1st time this season & repaired recoil mechanism on motor (which was supposedly repaired by A2 Implements earlier in April!)
