Another morning up bright and early and ready for yet another day on the mountain. Kissed my bride goodbye – picked up my co-worker and headed West again this morning. Co-worker was in rare form this morning, mumbling something about lack of sleep and coffee. Whatever the hell it was – he was definitely in Sloth mode. Got everything up on the roof and tried to get started. In my mind, the sooner we got started, the cooler it would be and the sooner we would get done……. Hmmm…. not so much when one of you is in Sloth mode…. but I pushed, the sun beat down on us, the winds mercifully had laid down a little bit (only 10-15mph today) and by 11:00ish, we had run out of screws and had to quit….. one strip of metal shy of being completely done. Dammit Emmit~! Boss was happy with where we wound up at and I needed to get back a little bit early today so it all worked out pretty good. Got the job site cleaned up and was soon back at the condo cooling off. Angie had a doctors appointment to follow up with her blood pressure. Doc is getting her under control as well – including trying to keep her cough in check.
While she was out, I got a couple of things tied up on the lap top and then settled in for a nice hot/cool shower. I have been having some mean back pain the last couple days. I thought it was our mattress, but now mostly convinced it is manual labor that I am no longer used to. Anyhow – spent enough time with hot water on my back to loosen it up a little bit before turning it to almost completely cold to finish my shower and help cool me down.
Spent a little time watching some TV (we had to quit watching PSYCH…. halfway through Season 4 – they started charging for it…. bastards…… it wasn’t that good – so we just quit watching it. Haven’t picked out a new series yet) Around 4:30 we decided to head up to Blues to check out a new ‘band’. Turns out it was one guy with one very small powered speaker……. actually though – he wasn’t all that bad. Got a bite to eat – Hung out and chatted with friends. Made a couple of new friends and just overall had a really good time. We wound up shutting them down at 9:00 before heading back here.
Good friends of ours are making their first Discover SCUBA dive tomorrow and have asked me to come along and take some pictures for them. Hell yeah~!! Get to dive with ‘newbies’ and take pictures~! I’m on it~! (Plus I get to ‘sleep in’ tomorrow) 😉 So – I should have some fun underwater pictures for you tomorrow at the least~!
Good Night Ya’ll – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – Thankx for stopping in~!
Was trying to catch the sun coming up through the haze……. has was so thick you could actually look directly at the sun….. it took several attempts –
but I finally got it~!
Again – this is sun RISE~!
My work site for the past 3 days –
Pretty nice view~!
Ladder configuration~~ (you can see silver strip on leading corner we had already done)
Hard to tell – but that is about a 12′ drop down to the pool~
Harder to tell – but that is about a 25′ drop just the other side of the ladder~!
Did suffer one slight ‘Aw-Crap’ today~~ (It really wasn’t as bad as it looked)
