Oh. Scratch that. I just remembered that I've got a loose toilet to fix. Don't really want to do that, but I have to!
A few wildlife pics from the park...
Our resident great horned owl.
Ruth was out and startled these two deer.
Off they go!
Our hired help (also named Kevin) found a young magpie that was being attacked by other birds. Brought him inside the shop and made him comfortable, but he's not in very good shape. Hopefully he's still alive this morning, and if so we'll put him back where we found him and hopefully he'll reconnect with his mom.
Ruth went into town yesterday by herself to do grocery shopping. I had taken much of Tuesday off to get Lindsey to the airport and had a couple of things here I needed to get done before the weekend. Biggest project was a water leak in one of our washrooms. A few weeks ago, we had fixed a water leak because of freezing in the winter, when I noticed another leak. Checking further into it, there were two screws that had pierced one of the water lines. Not one, but two! They had obviously been leaking since they built the building two or three years ago!
I knew it was a big job so I had been procrastinating a bit on fixing it. But it had to be done before the upcoming July 1st long weekend, so I got to it.
I was right. I knew it was going to be a big job.
But, I got it done, and put back together. Gonna have to charge plumber rates next year I think!
After that, I went back to work on our old pickup truck. I had bought some 2x3 lumber, and some screws, but the rest of the materials for building the box on the flatbed came from stuff that was just lying around the shop. Some of the lumber wasn't long enough, but I made do.
Ready to build the box.
I made it so that the tailgate comes off. The dump box is hydraulic and it even works. The truck only has 67,000 miles on it. It'll be a great help around the park.
It kind of reminds me a bit of the old Beverly Hillbillies truck. All we need is a rocking chair for granny!
