    That's great Molokai!! Hahaha, caught it on camera, too! :D
    I can be a bit on the vague side. o_O
    Tore the last of the old sheeting off the west side of it tonight. That sucker was eaten to within a hair of the surface by termites.

    Gutted that roof, loads of cleaning up to do though. It has moved right along though, pretty happy with my progress, seeing as how little time I get to spend on it.

    And wind warnings for the next 2 days. If you know the Santana's, you know to pack chapstick tomorrow and Friday. Hot, dry, desert wind, it will have you fit to be kiting out to sea! :eek:

    Another blessing of delicious meat for my family and friends.

    We try to cull young males and leave the does and trophy bucks alone.

    Gonna squeeze in some time on the forge shed before dark. The old roof is gone, cleaning up and organizing thoughts and new roof plans.

    Probably wouldn't care for it much. Not a coffee fan here. The wife may like it though.

    Summer came back in it's 92 degree glory.

    If life lines up just so, I might get to do a few nights of camping next weekend. Weather app says it might even be cool. Hard to believe it as I'm sweating up a storm and doing some chores.

    Edit - checked to make sure I had my info right. Nope. It's actually 93. And the weather app says it "feels like" 99. You gotta love humidity. Or not.

    Same here, heating back up to the mid nineties first half of the week. It's been warming up since Friday.
    I was fitting up some metal work this afternoon outside. Not too bad when I am the one calling all the shots at home. During the week, I am trying to please someone or another while working iron, it can get frustrating.

    From the demolition phase.

    It's time to interface between the old, but usable posts and what I hope will be the new forge roof.

    7B4DA7A7-1377-473B-9C5A-7D2FF9D3EDC2.jpeg A few years ago the island caught fire. Being that it’s only seven miles wide there were not a lot of options to escape the flames and especially the smoke.

    It was pretty humbling. Here’s a pic that was taken from the wharf. Luckily it was far enough away that you could breathe.

    Catalina Island caught fire some years ago, pretty small place for wildfires also.

    We found termite damage to the "good side" of my shed roof. Little heathen bugs... this job just got more complicated.
