The Early Edition
Hot, dusty day today....low of 45, high of 99+. Went to breakfast at the Grub Shack....dropped off a chunk of the new weird Field Lab bread for Betty to test - she approved. Got my McCoy's delivery by 11AM. My favorite drivers were out for this drop - Mickey and Martin. Got the gate for Nancy and 42 bags of concrete. That's 3360 lbs.
Took about 4 hours to dig out, level, and fit the forms for container one. I used some gravel from about one mile down my road to set the beds for the concrete. Felt kind of good to get all dirty and sweaty for a change. Managed to stay out of the direct sun for most of the labor. Shuttled 6 bags of concrete mix over to my friend David's "soon to be house" east of me. Last bump of the day, I got 20 bags of concrete placed by the pour for tomorrow. My solar hot water was a bit over the top tonight so I added 8 gallons of cold water. Rinsed off the day with the perfect temperature. Nothing better than naturally air drying after a shower in the desert.
Signing in and off early tonight because I'm heading over to Chuck's soon to watch myself on Texas Country Reporter...I love that show and it should be interesting to see how they put it all together. Yeah.....I'm a press whore.
UPDATE...hmmmm as usual - press did not air as promised - at least not on the satellite channels - reckon it ran only on cable or standard broadcast. Why is it so easy to get press but so difficult to find out when it will be available to the masses? stay tuned...
