Monday Sky Monkey














Rather brutal working on the east end off a ladder instead of a nice big flat roof like on the west end.  Got a late start but got half of it welded into place.  Had visitors today - burros in the morning, Benita all day, and bunnies in the late afternoon....and not a single human!  78,92,51,0,W

John, are you ever tempted to slap some waffle board on that sucker to finish it off? You are almost there!

And can imagine getting the welding machine up there couldn't have been easy either...

Always good to see Benita.

I love the burro picture, and the fact that there are so many wild burros out there. I can't get over feeling there is some lost potential there. I can think of so many ways they could be useful. Of course, all my grandiose plans would probably come crashing down the first time I tried to harness them.

You're about to get that east end boarded up just in time to keep out the cold weather. The greenhouse courtyard would be a cozy spot for Benita to wait out a blue norther, or sixty three hours of below freezing temps like last year. Or, is that space off limits to her?

I dig the bunnies. They are my namesake and mascot.

Just enjoy the blog John. It's great to catch up and see burro life in Terlingua after all day in meetings! Enjoy this no-humans from time to time!

a question Mr.Wells, are the vents and doors on the ends the only ventilation or are there other vents planned to regulate the temperature?

With the thermal mass from the blocks and the reflective heat from the shipping containers isn't excessive heat buildup inside the greenhouse a legitimate concern?

John,
How'd you get the bunny to pose?

Them varmints never seem to stay still for me...
