And then one thing just transpired into another and I lit into the upper green part of the project, so I thought I'd share some photos of that as well.

At least the Diamond Shield Project is now complete.

The thing about doing a tedious project was it gave me hours and hours and a sunburn on my neck to think about my father and the good times we shared.
I love pasta! And with bacon!

Great job on the diamond shield project, looks great.

I bet those little diamonds glittering on the front would be distracting, like those on diamond plate .....

Nuthin' but yummy woo-woo-woo treats in my pockets!!! Or possibly better yet: nothing even vaguely resembling food! Advice, Barb?

Not in KS any more

Not even out of the airport in Ft. Lauderdale yet and we know we're someplace *else*. Love this bus.

Shipping out tomorrow afternoon with 2 days at sea. Need a good night's sleep to get prepared for all this tough activity.

Cheers!

Hey Sue,

Make sure you take time to relax and enjoy the swells as you're cruising along, I'm quite sure your cruise will be perfect. Keep the photos coming.

Cheers !!!

Hey Marty,

Isnt it amazing how places that never get any snow, just dont have a clue on what to do with it or can figure out a way to deal with it. I have seen it many times.

Cheers !!!

Neighbor had a 2-foot rattler under their rig about an hour after dark. It scurried off. Will be just that slight bit more vigilant, here in the Sonora Desert.

That is to say......EEEEEK!!!

You be careful my friend, we have way to much more Jeepin to do and dont want ya stuck by a two fanged hypodermic needle.

This brings to mind a ponderance. It has been said that if you want self protection, but dont wish to use a handgun or a tazer, that you can get a can of wasp spray that will shoot 15 to 20 feet and really make your eyes sting. So I ponder as I wonder what would wasp spray do to a rattler besides make it really mad, and other than making it really mad, would it vacate the area ?

Cheers !!!

Just don't think all capuchins are like the ones you see in CR. That subspecies is well known for their, uh... well, uh... less than delightful personalities..

CR is the northern edge of capuchin territory and there are 4 subspecies that, as you go south, progressively developed much better manners. Hmmm, seems like some humans I know. Blackcaps, Sena's variety, are the most southerly and the most numerous.

Just don't try to bring one home with you. Sena's ancestors arrived in this country prior to the mid 70's ban on monkey imports for private ownership. The fines are very steep, and the confiscated monkey's fate is often tragic.

As for treats... Food could get you assaulted by an unmannerly pack of thieves. Best to save them for Sena. If you take a camera and/or sunglasses make sure they have a sturdy strap and you have a good grip on it.

Enjoy them for me, too.

Rattlesnakes are like heat seeking missiles. One has eyes the other a camera. Neither are necessary for an effective strike. Doesn't mean the snake wouldn't head the other way, but don't want to be the one to test the theory. If it were me, I'd call Dogpatch to come down or at least tell ya where he bought his bucket. I know for a fact, nobody could get to Arizona from Canada any faster than Les.

Not worried, #2. It rattled at their dog.

I have not seen one close up since 1973 in the GA woods. Eastern diamondback, 7-footer. He was in the middle of the path. I capitulated.
