The day started early. It was mentored youth fishing. William came and spent the night so that he could get up and go fishing with Grandpa. I made pancakes for their breakfast while William cooked the eggs. Then they were off. It was a successful day. William caught 3 rainbow trout and was very excited. The quote of the day: "Fishing is a lot more fun when you catch fish." (William)
After he went back home, we drove down to work on the greenhouse today. Tim called down the measurements and I cut the purlins and handed them up. We installed the plate glass window at the back and the sliding doors on the front. One we were sure the building wasn't going anywhere, we put the roof on.
The clouds started moving in, and the wind began to pick up a little, which made the roofing panels a bit trickier. I was handing a panel (4 x 5) up to Tim when a gust of wind caught it like a kite. I hung on tight and followed it a few feet across the yard.
We were passing a gas station and the smell of gas fumes was very strong.
About the same moment we noticed police flashing lights up ahead. "I wonder if there has been an accident? Maybe that's where the gas smell is coming from. You think they'd have the fire department."
It's a fine, little greenhouse.ReplyDelete
Your greenhouse is looking quite chic. Can you pop over here and build one for me too?ReplyDelete
Did you eat your trout by the way?
Great greenhouse. What about a nice summer house for you to write in?ReplyDelete
Tim wants to add on to it already. He wants a hot tub!ReplyDelete
Yikes! At least you didn't explode!ReplyDelete
Before I came across your blog, I ran over an object one evening that hit somewhere in the back of the car. My concerned wife asked it hurt anything back there. I said no, because the only thing back there was the gas tank.ReplyDelete
Famous last words.
The both of you are putting in long days. Hope you're getting enough sleep.ReplyDelete
Our incident was the hose, which dripped as opposed to a gushing tank. Your situation was much worse Ed. Plus it happened at night. Yikes, yikes, yikes!ReplyDelete
