Drying the hooks for Joanne and Mitch's sauna building
Rejean's treasure from the dump. Perfect for what he wants to do.

During the summer the dump is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays - I usually forget to go on Wednesday so I go on Saturdays. Today I had company - Rejean decided to accompany me - we had a lot of stuff so I think he thought I couldn't handle it but it turns out he was looking for something which he found - it is always a good day when you find a treasure at the dump. Joanne and Mitch have a Sandpoint water system at their place and it needs some adjustment. Rejean was going to build a tripod thing to keep the end out of the mud at their place - well he found just the thing at the dump today. It, he states, is perfect for what he wants to do. He found it in the scrap area of the dump. I have no idea what it was but I know what it is going to be. There is a joke that "you know you are a redneck when you leave the dump with more than you brought" There is lots of good usable stuff at the dump and people around here appreciate and know how to make good use of "junk".
We also worked on hooks for Joanne's sauna room. There weren't enough hooks for towels and clothes so we (read Rejean) made some hooks for the place. I am in the process of varathaning them - 3 coats with sanding after the 2nd. Nice. We will install them tomorrow. No charge.
We finally got some rain last nite - much needed. Still need more tho.
And my ravens scared off the fox today. You could hear them making a ruckus - the same as they did when the fox was around before. And it turns out the fox was around today. They chased him over across the road. I think they think they are protecting us or maybe just chasing him away from their feeding area. Gee thanks!!
See Ya Bye
