Has It Really Been Two Months??

Where does the time go? Well, for me it seems to be a blur of dealing with contrators, a new job, new community (even though I grew up here) and tons of other trivial matters that seem to swallow up my days.

As you may remember, we'er building a new house that apparently is made of platinum or gold. The problem with living here in the sticks is that materials cost about 3 times what I'm used to. Had I known, I would have rented an 18 wheeler and driven to Durango to pick up my ow materials. Oh well! And remember how um, "upset" I was that the concrete took so long? Well, I still am, cause now the builders are dealing with snow and cold weather which means slower work. Also, we had to rent a house since the fuel cost to heat our RV over the winter would be more than the rent. On the plus side, the rental is a little old farm house with lots of deer hanging out in the fields every morning and night, so to quote Bill Murray, "I have that going for me; which is nice."

I promised Barn Goddess some pics, so here you are. I hope you like them!


Nice huh?

From the rental a few weeks ago


In honor of the Goddess; these guys belong to one of my customers. I tried to catch the one on the right as he was bucking across the field, but as soon as I stopped my truck, he came over to check if I had any treats for him LOL!

I would like to say I'll do better at posting, but I don't know if I will or not. I want too, but life sometimes gets in the way. Check back in, you never know when I'll show up! Till then friends, be good!!

Hi dear,

Well of course you're not the only one that hasn't posted in a while. So much crap has gone lately, as I see it has with you also. (awesome shots by the way...what a grand view)

Sometimes I wish people lived closer, I'd invite ya'll over for some brews or tea. And then you could bitch as much as you want to me about the crap you have to go through with getting this house completed ;) And I would tell you about how pissed I was when someone rear-ended me a few weeks ago...what an effin headache (pardon the french.)

What I should do is shoot you an email. I need to write you. I've got drill this weekend so it looks as though it may have to wait until Sunday. Take care, buddy

Hi Vctoria! Thanks; I'm glad you like them :) Nice bike there in the pic; I wish the weather was nicer here to go for a ride. We only got to go on one real ride this summer.

Take care!

Team Air Force can still meet its goal if each blogger brings in $400 more.

Laurie said...

Just $257 now needed from each blog on the team. Our goal is still in reach!
