New Nest

Got a new nesting dove in the greenhouse.  The last time they tried this nest, the hatchlings ended up falling out after about a week.  Lets hope they beefed up the nest and this round will work out better... 85,96,73,0,B

time for a new torch

My Bernzomatic TS8000 is finally shitting the bed after melting almost 200 ounces of silver over the past 3 years.  First the trigger lock went out and now it can't keep a nice high temperature flow.  Was trying to do a test casting today for some crosses that have been ordered and ended up with an ounce and a half of silver stuck in my ceramic crucible.  A replacement torch is coming tomorrow and the good news is it was 25 bucks cheaper than when I got the first one in 2015.  84,90,68,0,C

I recently got this in a daily devotional that I subscribe to.  I think this was an odd combination to include together.  I am not a big fan of fear scriptures...

a little water...

It has been almost a year since I got enough rain at once for the arroyo to run'n'pump. My creek tanks are pretty low after all that time. Just bagged 2,900 gallons.  Video coming Monday.  68,74,69, .65",C
