I haven't been taking too many photos lately of other stuff I've been doing as I haven't had much time to re-size them, let alone up-load them.

The drainage project turned out good to great. There might be some minor issues with the catch-basin drain in heavy rain-falls, but a small diversion berm should correct it. The water is going to run 15 feet into the neighbors property. There isn't much else I could have done due to the property, adjacent property, and the grade of the neighborhood. Needless to say it was poor Sub-Division design in the 50's.

Did some work at the farm-house this last week and I might have time in the next couple of days to post photos.

Also one of the Hitching ledges is going to be installed in a couple of weeks out there! The block and pavers are ordered and in, but I'm waiting for a dead elm tree to get taken down first so there is no damage to the walk and ledge when I'm finished.

Rained another 1/2 inch of rain today. That makes a total of 1.25 inches the last two days.

Needless to say it didn't dry out until 3pm, so I decided to take the time to clean Dupe. There was some nasty oil/dirt going on in the engine compartment.

Here's some shot's of the cover panels off so I could access the inside.

Not much! Just Super Busy! If it's not work, it's family life, which is quit OK with me.

Dodging tons of R*%$. (We'll just call it the "R" word as I don't need to say it out-loud considering there are tons of people who are in a drought this year....)

So needless to say I'm doing lots of small work in-between the storms. I've got a few medium installs to do when it dries out enough.

How's it going with you? Are you keeping the stress down?

Here's some more photos. Had 3 reputable tree contractors come out and look at taking down a tree in my yard. All 3 gave me a quote, then looked at me and said they wouldn't touch it.

It has been topped multiple times, limbed up by the power company, was 15 feet from main power lines, 15 feet from my house, and 20 feet from my feeder line to my house.

So, I hounded the power company to take it down out of safety for them as it would have fallen on the lines. They agreed, no cost to me. .

I didn't even have to haul off my logs, one of my neighbors came down to haul them away and use them to heat his garage. I made out like a bandit!
