It was miserably humid today, but I managed to get the plywood cut and installed for the lower (enclosed) part of the patio. Now all I need to do is get the upper part screened in, and build a door. Some months ago, I bought a neat light fixture at Lowe's for 5 bucks from a clearance table. I'll install it over the door - or where there will eventually be a door! As usual, I took a few photos of my latest progress. Click the title link above, or just click July 2007 to the left (if you are on my website).
I've been very busy at work the last few days, for some reason. It's odd. Sometimes you'll go for several days with hardly any calls at all. All the techs will be beeping each other on the Nextel, "Hey, Rod, got any calls I can take for you?" Then all of a sudden, things will just explode, and everyone will be beeping each other asking for help. I've tried for years to figure out what influences these ups and downs, but I haven't come up with any answers as yet. Maybe I should pay more attention to the phase of the moon. Perhaps all the craziness happens under a full moon. The police and paramedics seem so agree things get a little nuttier under a full moon.
I almost forgot to mention - the Mail Owl paid us a visit Friday with a nice little package from Border's. Hmmm. What could it possibly be? Looks like a book - one people are camping out overnight for. Yep. It's Harry! Yeah, that Harry! We are now the proud owners of a first edition of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. We just have to restrain our muggle selves from reading any of it until we get the rest of the books.
Well, I'm going to take it easy the rest of the evening, and maybe create some art. Or something.
