addn to the dam...
My friend Fred Porter began the final phase on the dam project today....more material on top and a spillway to be added tomorrow. Just ordered 7 cu yds of sand to be delivered next week to level the courtyard. Planning another Alpine trip again soon to order pavers and obtain an outdoor welding permit.
Had some off time this afternoon and took advantage of an opportunity to upload a new video to YouTube. Benita is not usually in the mood for interaction when she is laying down. Today she was in the "zone" and appreciated the extra attention. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0SyTzOXffs
Yet another new critter scooted by The Field Lab this morning. And no...I won't kill them unless they pose a threat or become a problem. This badger ran off right after I took his picture. 90,101,69,0,B
