Pulled into my daughter's Missouri place quite some few days ago... Can't help but admit, I'm still quite a bit adrift... If I'd wrote about it all you'd have seen was; gonrn roa;lkj;lak ;ajk djdi isidkna
Sooooo... I mostly just pulled in my head and tried at keeping my mouth shut.
"The Ozarks"... they say that like... The Ozark Mountains... um... wait... what? ha ha.
It's pretty round about... and a rolling country... but mountains? um... no. ;) Simple fact, I have a need for seeing tall mountains around me on the horizon. And for my camp being set deep in them. I'll be hungering for that vision 'fore I haul out of here.
Been pretty much just tinkering. Help with the finishing of their shop building... with those things where I can reach down rather than up. Reaching down I can do real good. Reaching over my head for a light switch or some other still needs some work.
The morning "coffee" view from where they parked me is fairly good...
Their sunset aren't Arizona grade... but they don't hurt your eyes either.
Been working on a small project for a few days. It's far from my best work... all things considered, but it'll do. I'll have my leather tools consolidated and convenient to use when I get back to Cochise... or maybe in a camp along the way somewhere... not knowing at this point where my road is going.
I built it as a closed box and then cut that in half so I have matching boxes that will hinge together in a clamshell configuration. I built the same sort of thing a few years back, before we stepped off... but that was the wrong shape/orientation... so we'll see if this evolution works out better.
Inside I'll put a few tool rack shelves to carry the tools... as well as some other miscellaneous arrangements for odd bits and pieces...
It takes some getting used to going from Arizona to Missouri. Dry to Wet! Been raining nigh on to every day. Skies are often grey. Had to look at the map to make sure Missouri wasn't in Seattle!
Pretty typical, the motor is not quite cooled off and there's the guy with his eyes looking off there at the horizon just over those trees...
The shop is 98%... Things aren't quite lined out to start the house and timing says if there's to be a garden and such this year they need to get a move on that... so I guess that's what's on the schedule this week... marking out and getting to work on building garden beds and a chicken coop that'll sit right along side...
I told her that needs to happen quick anyway... a friend of theirs mentioned that sometime next month is the start of tornado season... uhhhh... hell no! I'm outa here come the start of that sucker!
Sooooo... that gives me a month or six weeks to figure out which way to point the radiator when the time comes... with a bit of luck and arbitrary stubbornness this bum shoulder will be strengthened up enough to carry the load then too.
