Mother and Baby
OK, the women have spoken, and for the most part, do not have fond memories of washing dishes in the sink. So, lets see if I can do better today. This picture was taken in 1912, and shows a mother kissing her baby. Hopefully you will have more pleasant memories of caring for your babies, but I can not be sure, as I thought you would have pleasant memories of washing dishes with your mother.
Well, I am sure you saw the big announcement yesterday that Elly May's babies hatched. They are a fine bunch of pea-chickies, and are all up and about.
I also finally made some real progress on the greenhouse. The guy was able to come out and get the holes drilled for the grounding stakes.
You can see Buddy getting his truck set up to drill the holes. I needed 18 holes, each 1 foot across and 3 foot deep. I live on a rock, so it takes pretty heft equipment to get holes that deep.
It pretty much took all day to get the holes drilled. Now, the next step is to get the grounding stakes concreted in the holes, and then the foundation can be poured. The concrete guy is having the rebar and other material delivered here today, so hopefully we will finally start making some progress.
