Tuesday Update

Priscilla Chafin joined us for cards yesterday afternoon.  It is always nice to see her out and about.  (Diane Reese, Priscilla, Suzette Taylor, Connie Morin, and me behind the camera.)

While we are out on house watch rounds, we keep our eyes peeled for wildlife as well.  A pair of roadrunners scooted across the road in front of us this morning and one of them stopped on these rocks.  He is certainly in his habitat.  Makes for a nice photo.

 
Much much action up at the north gate this morning.
 
Now it is time to reconnect the electric lines they had to sever in order to dig the sewer trench.  Gray pipe represents electric lines.  I never stopped to think about all the color coding for piping.

 
 We briefly chatted through the fence with these gents while they were busy at work and gave them the address for the blog.  It should be fun to share this site with their family tonight.  Thanks, guys!
 
Here are the connections to the transformer.
 
 
Back out in the field we could see the purple pipe being laid out for the sprinkler system at the ballfield.
 
 
 
Off in the distance we can see stacks of concrete blocks being brought in to construct the wall.
 
Photos taken from the patio of Site 22 again.  Will be able to show you more the next time Jim Dawson takes me along in the truck.
 
 
Have a great day folks.  Keep those emails coming my way.  I love hearing from you and you keep me motivated to spend all this time at my keyboard.
P.S.  Out of curiosity, I looked up the grammatical spelling for the word "gray".  Very interesting so thought I'd share this tidbit:
Gray and grey are different spellings of the same word, and both are used throughout the English-speaking world. But gray is more common in American English, while grey is more common in all other major varieties of English. The phrase grey area/gray area, meaning an area having characteristics of two extremes, may be spelled either way. Graybeard/greybeard, referring to an older man with a beard, is also spelled both ways. So is gray squirrel/grey squirrel. But greyhound—the breed of dog—is always spelled with an e.

    Today, you can get pregnant naturally with a contemporary method, innovatively developed for more than a decade of well- done research. Being over weight or under weight also effects the delicate balance of estrogen in your system which may make it harder for you to get pregnant.
