2 Out Of 3…. Or Maybe 4. Not Bad For A Grumpy Old Wreck

4FFFCDD2-EF96-45CC-B36A-DD723C07EF62My goal, while Zina has been out of town, has been to get at least 2 or 3 more minor builds out of the way before she gets home.  So far 2 down.  Next up, plumbing our water tank.  Then, lastly, a jungle gym for the girl goats.  I’ll likely get three done.  It’s too durned hot to construct stuff out in that goat pasture.  It’ll just have to wait.  Also, after six days of throwing, sawing, hauling and screwing, lumber and steel, I’m feeling some stenosis twinges in my hip,  and my toes are kind of going to sleep.  It’s from too much illegal bending and twisting.  I’m going to have to let the old backbone rest a bit.  Those tingles are definitely PTSD moments.

I finished roofing the dog house this morning.  There are still a few minor details to batten it all down; but those remaining  things are to winterize it.  Considering it’s 98 degrees right now, I think I have some time yet.  Both pups have been in it and are looking decidedly spoiled.  If we ever need to babysit a Buffalo, now we’ll have room!  Or the in-laws.  Either works.  So 2 compost bins (I still need to fill) and a horse sized dog house in about 6 days.  I’ll chalk it up to that farmer dude being able to do anything!

    Grumpy old wreck?
    Grumpy – Well, okay.
    Old – That is open to interpretation.
    Wreck – Wrecks do not build like you have been doing.
    That is only one or perhaps two out of three.
