July 14th… cool, dreary, nice breeze.. a good day to build!

Gonna hit the bricks early today and get to work on the barn! I’ll cut gussets until the rain starts and then switch to rabbit hutches. If it quits raining, I’ll switch back. Anyway…..I’ll be building and reducing the list of things yet to be done before fall weather hits. Once I get the roofs done, we will see huge differences in a days work. Right now with hurricane tabs, nailer plates and gusset supports, it’s hard to see any progress and it looks just as it did when Matt & Mark left for Jersey.

Later today, we’ll be heading for Guilderland where we will get Vicki on Dr. Paster’s table again. She had a miserable night last night, but it wasn’t all from her back problems! She did have some sharp, piercing, pains in her feet, but that is to be expected, I guess, as the feeling in her feet is returning. Otherwise, there are just certain problems in life that cannot be fixed or made better, so you have to learn to accept them as they are and move on with or without them. This one just needs to be left alone and forgotten about when we can. I pulled her hernia down at about 2:30 AM, but she still had reflux until a 2nd Zanex kicked in and relaxed the Hernia around 4:20 or so.

The art exhibit yesterday was really nice and we had the opportunity to spend the afternoon with Stanley Maltzman and his close friend Joyce. Stan & Joyce are a pleasure to be around and we go places with them more and more often. We really enjoy their company. Here are a few pictures I snapped of the center of town and the library. I would have liked to get a picture of the inside for you all to see, but would never snap a picture of displayed art unless I had the artists permission and then only at great distance. Well, here’s the pictures….Gotta go git ta buildin’.

This is the pond and fountain in the center of Greenville

The library basement where all the art classes & exhibits take place.

The band stand pavillion between the library and pond. It's very peaceful and pretty there when you just feel like sitting and watching the world go by. It is also the focal point for many speakers at celebrations and holiday functions.

These doors suggest..."open to all...come in and look around."

The library in it's entirety. a great community asset!
