truss painting

Good morning show - with Benita and Beatrice right on que ....even got a mention about the webcam on my favorite radio station KRTS Marfa Public Radio. My friend Neil from the UK joined in this morning...and both he and my Texas friend Paul tuned in tonight.

Nice/cool crystal clear day today. Trimmed the rebar on half of the east wall and secured some cross pieces - getting ready to pour the cap. Wasn't quite up to building the forms so I fired up the sprayer instead and coated 1 1/2 of the three high trusses to fill in the day.

Ordered the super-duper IP cam today..... 73,89,52,0

Was a good show this morning. looking forward to your new web cam, I got an inquiry in about one I found that will possibly work from here also. :-)

Missouri Grandma says I am hooked, you are my new soap opera...if I could just visualize what you are building...but the hints keep coming every day! I know it is going to be awesome as everything else has been.

Hey John! You're kinda like the ZZTop of Sustainable Living. The beard is perfect.
I've certainly enjoyed your shared contributions to the rest of us who are headed in that direction. I'm currently in Bakersfield, CA, where the temps are probably similar to where you are (110 fairly normal for at least 3 months of summer), but I grew up in it so no big deal.
I'm eventually headed for the Big Island of Hawaii to live in a yurt I built from recycled materials - I once lived in the jungle outside of Hilo a couple of decades ago and loved it. All the fruit you can eat, plenty of free fish, interesting people, rainwater galore, it's easy to grow veggies and the ladies look a little better than longhorns...Paradise! If you don't mind working around a live volcano...
All the best to you on your journey, and if I ever get thru that way, I'll bring some papayas and mangos.
I loved your poem, by the way, too.

I was using my new HD webcam 'Mit Optik von Carl Zeiss'. Before the show I tidied up my field of view. It was as if a clean bomb went off at my desk. Unfortunately, the blast radius was only about 8ft.
Looks like another lovely day, thanks for sharing.
