Although yesterday was no labor day....I actually did some labor cleaning up the NW corner of the greenhouse - just didn't have time to do the after picture until today. Now Benita has a little more room for her favorite mid-morning shade.
Today was just an errands day. Did a laundry and water run. Hooked up with my new friend - the famous Pablo Menudo down south this afternoon. He has an electronically defective Maytag washing machine for my bike powered washing machine project. I'm gonna pick it up tomorrow from him.
My new friends Abby and Jim came by today for the tour. Benita didn't cooperate for their visit, but I put on a longhorn feeding show for them down the road....starring Beatice and Benito. Hope to get a photo from them soon to post.
Been anguishing over my next camera purchase. The G9 is still good for stills but dust inside the camera shows up in the videos. Was leaning toward the very high end Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR upgrade. Decided to go the super cheap route for now and bought the Kodak Playsport HD digital camcorder to experiment with. The cam is waterproof so I reckon that means dust proof too. Will post some tests with it tomorrow. 81,94,63,0,B
