I did take time to watch my birds. I am fascinated the mommy and daddy constantly fly from early morn to night to feed the little guys. They are some real hungry little dudes.
I have one nesting in the smaller shed. I met one of the parents close up. I scared him or her. The bird was within 2 feet of me and done a quick reversal. they enter thru the Jalousie window. I love birds. I never will forget our youngest son once looking out the back door at the birds and saying, “How can they live with our arms?” It was a real puzzle to him.
The first project is on it’s way. We have a rental house with great folks in it. We are adding a new roof and getting rid of a flat roof in the corner. It is a little extra work but cuts down on leak problems. Flat roofs are always a leak waiting to happen.
(This is Henry on the roof!)
I started the rood the way I wanted it and My son and his helper finished it. Our youngest son was a general contractor, a very good builder. Now since the down turn he is taking what he can to get some income. Most of the time he does what is called ‘scrapping’, finding discarded metal and selling it. It is honest ‘hard’ work, but he actually seems to have started enjoying it, but it is hard and very dirty work. His income is much less than min. wages, he is not eligible for unemployment or any of the ‘free’ government assistance.
That is the down side of being self employed, there is NO UNEMPLOYMENT. You use your savings, then you start selling things. BUT most self employed folk understand and know that. some revert or turn to the bottle or drugs. That is always a danger.
Anyway, the roofing job is underway and I can turn to my main goal, of a nice storage area.
Son Jack just stopped by and brought a quart of vegan collards. Shirl stopped by to sample them.
If I did not get by to visit & comment, be assured I read as much as I could get to. But it became today before I knew it. hahahaha
Thanks for coming by the log.
Why do they call it a TV set
When you only have one?
This is a 1949 Ford Convertible. The Fords were FAST. Kids could ‘get rubber’ in all gears with that flat head v-8. I was never a Ford guy, but I respected them.
