Then to our land to continue building The Barn. The nail gun was giving us LOTS of trouble today and it wasn't the cold this time! The weather was beautiful - sunny and in the low 60's. Great working weather. Any way we had to hand nail most all of the sheathing and my hand is a bit sore this evening. The nail gun is brand new so we will bring it back where we bought it and see about getting it fixed or a replacement.
Here Ken is carrying a sheet of plywood with a pretty handy little helper tool.
So this is our last night at the rental house. It has been nice but I am looking forward to seeing my house and sleeping in my own bed.
********************Some of you may be wondering how Accident got it's name. When we ate at Annie's Kitchen this was on the place mat.
Why Our Town is Called "Accident"About the year 1751, a grant of land was given to Mr. George Deakins by King George II of England in payment of a debt. According to the terms, Mr. Deakins was to receive 600 acres of land anywhere in western Maryland he chose. Mr. Deakins sent out two corps of engineers, each without knowledge of the other group, to survey the best land in this section that contained 600 acres.
After the survey, the engineers returned with their maps of the plots they had surveyed. To their surprise, they discovered that they had surveyed a tract of land starting at the same tall Oak tree and returned to the starting point. Mr. Deakins chose this plot of ground and had it patented "The Accident Tract."
Hence, the name of the town.
