Ephesians 5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

more concrete coming up...

Sat, 2019/10/12 - 3:17pm
Jackhammered a 10" diameter hole 30" deep through solid rock on Friday.  Picked up a 13' long 4"x4" steel post this morning to set in with concrete tomorrow morning.  This if for Big Bend Telephone to mount their dish to in order for the Casita to have phone and internet by the end of the month.  We would've had to wait 90 days for the phone company to come out and do this at a cost of over $250.  It took me 90 minutes and $30 bucks worth of my time to make this happen sooner than later.  Video Monday... 68,76,52,0,B
