Wow, that is cool! I get such a kick out of the things people do......"let's cut this in half and weld that to this". A new unique piece is born! Thanks for the pic, love it.

Wow, Terry! This pic reminds me of the 12' 6" X 12' 6" green house we moved from my old boss's house to our farm house about 10 miles away out in the country! We took all the glass out, and had to use very long 2 X 4's to shore it up, put it on a equipment trailer, strapped it down and away we went!
It was quite the job, removing all the glass and then setting it up on the poured concrete slab with water, propane, ( for the heater ) and elect.! Then putting all the glass back in!

He (my old boss) bought this green house for his wife, and she used it for about two years, then did nothing with it? And it was looking bad and he just wanted it out of his yard! Sold it to me for 500.00 dls. and said he would help us move it! Great deal on a 10 K green house! And that was 20 years ago prices! Rail!

Kind of like the Doge truck commercial where they are hauling a church behind the truck.
Better to get all your projects wrapped up before it is to cold and nasty.

Hey guys, I had to laugh.....have you seen the new Chevy truck commercial comprised of clips from several past commercials? I love the clip showing a Chevy pickup pulling a 747 jumbo jet.

I hate to tell you but we had a cold front that blew through last night. Dropped the temps to a chilly 67 today. from near 90 yesterday. I had to do it. by the time it gets up to your area it could bring cold weather.

Terry,

It was 75* here today so it should hit you in a day or so. Enjoy it, it won't last long.

Very similar to the current weather in Yuma. Just a bit cooler overnight so the sleeping is really good.

Temp wise, but we have this oppressive humidity, not the dry heat you have Gordon! I loved the weather in Algodones in the winter! But the summers were smoking hot!! I remember using the elect. heaters at night in the winter there!! Here we have only turned on the heat in our Mini split twice that I can remember at night, usually running the A/C! Rail!
