Just enough sprinkles to give me the excuse to postpone the mortar work today. Managed to finish up repairs to turbine 4 (new tail and wiring) and got 'er flying again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0bLs8aY45Itube.com/watch?v=b0bLs8aY45I Also topped off all my batteries with a drink of distilled water. Shoveled up 2 wheel barrow loads of gifts from the longhorns around the perimeter then did some house cleaning. We still have moderate chances of rain over the next couple days so I gotta be on my toes.

The Colorado Whoopenhollars
Talked to my Crazy Aunt Jean yesterday. (a term of endearment - she calls me Crazy Nephew John) Seems the book she has written has just about completed the self publication process. Look for it from booksellers in the fall. CAJ is an absolute peach and turns out that she is a very good writer on top of all her other talents. She obviously picked up her knack for story telling from her father who was able to keep his children amused from afar while he travelled and worked for the CCC during the Depression.
