Here she is next to her bosom buddy Lucy.
She appears to be eating more, much more. In fact, she turned into an eating-machine and she lost that hunched-up look.
We will wash the poop-ring off her tail after she is moved to a paddock closer to the house.
The roofers showed up today.
It started to rain at 12:30 and they bagged it for the day. The steel roofing is very slippery when wet.
They dropped off an enormous dumpster for the roof tear-off. Half the roof filled less than a sixth of the dumpster. The crew chief said I could not throw tires in there but he would look the other way for nearly everything else.
The roof tear-off was loud inside the house. It didn't bother me because I have lots of practice ignoring loud music, loud kids, loud TVs, loud bangs and the like. It drove Kubota nuts. Karma?
I fiddled with the old Coleman Dual-fuel 533 camp-stove I have.
My first go-around had several leaks. I looked at the cost of a new one ($100) and decided it would be worth my time to try to fix it.
I bought an set of Viton O-rings because...well, because it is always the O-rings.
It wasn't the O-rings. Somehow it had gotten tossed around and the compression fittings were loose. Fixing it involved lightly greasing the O-rings with Rotella red-grease, reassembling and tightening the nuts for the compression fittings.
It ran like crap until the air and stale gas had worked its way through the system.
Once it burned off whatever was clogging up the air-ports (spider webs?) it ran like a top.
What a great piece of technology and not a single wire or chip in it.
No pictures but at least one set of geese at the local pond have newly hatched goslings in tow.
Again, no pictures. I made a trip to Charlotte (pop about 8k) to shop at the local sporting goods store.
The Dunham's Sports in Lansing had New Balance running shoes that my feet like. I assumed the store in Charlotte would also have them.
On the positive side, they have Ruger American Ranch rifles in .350 Legend with decent Vortex glass on them for about $600. Tempting.
