Happy Birthday to our daughter Cindy.
The Original Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico 73 degrees (for a short time) and partly sunny to 104 degrees and sunny. Buster had twenty three drops of rain fall on him this morning about six-thirty, sitting at the computer I started hearing this tapping sound and was looking up trying to figure what was causing the tapping sound, Rain. One cloud over Buster. Again latter in the morning working on the ramp eleven drops of rain fell in the work area.
Neil, Richard and I set the blocks for the ramp digging out to have the ramp come down to grade level. Then tapering the joists for the slope. Cut some decking boards for the ramp and trimmed the first and last boards. The lower was cut with a taper to start onto the ramp and the top board was tapered to set next to the joist. We worked to the late hour of twelve and almost one hundred degrees. We are in the shade until almost eleven and wanted to complete the setting of the joists before stopping for the day. We also put down the thresh hold boards in front of the door, to allow wheeled laundry baskets and wheel chairs easy entry into the building.
Bonnie and Betty went to the Living Desert in Carlsbad to an arts showing and at four o’clock Bonnie and I went to happy hour.
