Popped the first test pavers out of the forms this morning...a little on the rough side. Have to keep them covered with plastic for about a week to let them cure. Got a break in having to make a decision on how to proceed with the greenhouse floor. I'm now officially permitted to proceed with welding work thanks to our County Commissioner. Will have to track down a spotter to watch for fire while working (as per the permit) - I don't think the webcam or Benita qualify for this role.
The bumpy roads out here have taken their toll on my truck suspension. The front struts lost their stuff today which prompted an emergency run to Alpine for repair. I have a feeling the rear end is about to go but will save that for a near future regularly scheduled trip. 92,102,54,0,B
