Vernon and Daniel went to help a neighbor with a leak in one of her waterlines on the mountain. Many of the mountain springs are “developed”, meaning they either have a water tank installed and/or a pipeline. Moving water to different places leads to cattle utilizing more areas to graze… and so, water is a Big Deal in this country, where annual rainfall measures about 14″. They also bring down our little excavator.
Brandon continued with his electricity re-model of the tin shop. I check on him on occasion, making sure he hasn’t fallen off the ladder, or lending a hand if needed. It’s something I’d rather do than clean, but I do keep returning to my house to do laundry and pick up a few more things!
Vernon and Daniel are back for a late lunch, and Daniel switches to mowing hay around my house and the first bottom field.
I pull out my paint can and begin a touchup of my garage doors. They simply will not hold paint for very long. It doesn’t matter if I prime or not, they take too much abuse from sun and heat and water and paint is continually peeling. The weather is supposed to cool down, and I know I’m facing winter with my painting projects. I need to pick them back up and finish them!
