Day Four

Today is an unbelievably beautiful day in the desert-sunny and warm, light breeze and cloudless sky. I started today, having long chat with my brother (after turning the hose on for a little more water in the pool). Glenn arrived for the to work on"plumbing" which, incidently, he has been doing all day (sans helper).

There are lots of white pipey-things with stinky blue goo running between the pool, the wall and the equipment shed. I was fortunate to escape for a small adventure to the grocery store to stock up on winter canned goods, mmmm. I sat in the Smiths parking lot munching a McSandwich and coffee while watching the local residents do their shopping-Hey, it's what retired folks do out here in the country.

I then drove over to the hardware store and bought two 4' piano hinges, two handles, a ceramic sawblade and a cover for my swamp cooler- they didn't have any mothballs.
After affixing the handles to the gigantic crate -I had to wait for Glenn to come back from lunch to cut the wallboard to fit around pipes; the insulating can wait.
There were some new holes around the foundation of the garage and I suspect they were made by our old friend Clyde Jr., I don't think he is enjoying the banging and drilling is going on in the garage. Good.

There isn't much in terms of exciting pictures, I will include a plumbing shots,which I'm sure are fascinating.

Maybe I can interview Glenn (teehee).

Also my ebay swim suit arrived! woo hoo
