Didn't get much done to day but I did learn that cinder blocks make good scratching posts. There seems to be a real lull at the Field Lab this week. I hope it is only because I plan on getting the green house project underway next week. Maybe I just need a brief break before the big push. Today: 1. Re-bladed turbine one and tilted it back into working position 2. Did NOT move my water tanks back into place 3. Dropped off some welding tips to Ben who has borrowed my welder 4. Gave a tour to 3 locals I met a couple of weeks ago 5. Checked Betty's wind turbine that had problems after the wind storm - all that was wrong was a cord had gotten tangled up in the rotor shaft of the blades 6. Fed my fab four longhorns and hung out with them.
The only saving grace of the day was #7. Checked Ben's progress at 5;30PM and he kicked ass again on day 2 of his project. It always makes me feel good to see something HAPPENING out here quickly - especially when it is a house springing out of the desert that I know will be completed, not halfway built and then abandoned like so many of the dwellings out here.
