Neil&Barb

Baked my loaf of "easy crusty bread" to perfection this morning in the gas grill (at 500 degrees).  Surprise visit from my new friends Neil and Barbara.  Managed to get back into spray mode for 2 hours then a 2 hour leisurely lunch at the GrubShack.  Had Eva make my BLT with some of my fresh baked bread.  She also made a grilled cheese (on my bread) for my buddy Dan.  Gave loaves of FL Beer Bread to Dan and to David. The 2 D's are the only ones that have had a problem with my Field Lab tshirs...Dan can't stand the fact that they are 10% polyester and David insists on a pocket.  Check out David's blog for more tales of life in the desert.  http://terlinguabound.blogspot.com/   Played with Benita for awhile then added 15 gallons to the solar shower and scrubbed off the week.  My new favorite thing to do is head to the Starlight for a couple of margaritas during the hot part of the afternoon, then come back home to work some more after it has cooled off.  Rather empowering to leave a bar early and get back to the grind. Sprayed 2 more hours away and I'm done for the day. Cheers!  91,101,72,0,C

Barb has a cool reflective cowboy hat on. I bet both those sandwiches were extra good with that homemade bread of yours...it does look pretty enough to eat.

EZB...I will trade you a Field Lab tshirt, 4 Benita postcards, and a loaf of FL bread for some cheese curds....

And the New World Economy is born. About time we went back to barter :)

The bread looks incredible. I feel like making a solar oven just to make bread.

Glad to see you are making progress on the greenhouse John.

The shade will be a lifesaver!

Love that photo of the bread . . . looks huge, like it's about to eat terlingua.
