The West is the Best!
Slow/hot day today. Low of 48 - High of 101. Took a leisurely morning at the Grub Shack. Borrowed a sifter from Aunt Kathy and came home to collect more gravel for the next pours. Picked a nice big yucca bloom and brought it home for the first longhorn to want it. Angelina won. Gathered and sifted the next 4 loads for my concrete mix. Too bloody hot to consider stirin' it up so layed back for the afternoon. Managed to work into the light schedule a minor modification on my solar oven reflectors. Did an adjustment of about 5 degrees to bounce more light into the oven. That little task has been on my mind for months - glad I finally got a round tuit. Had some stormy looking weather blowing in from the SW so I battened down the hatches and tarped all my concrete mix. Alas.....only about two drops of rain.
Went into production mode late this afternoon and shot my cowboy poem. I was a bit disappointed that the Texas Country Reporter segment on the Field Lab only featured half of the piece. Now it's out there in it's entirety for all the world to see. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwDoLYrMRIw
