Our Baccata Yucca is going to bloom! The flowers appeared almost overnight, I first noticed it yesterday. Hooray for xeriscaping! (Or ZERO-scaping if you're from Utah.). :)

To go for a ride in this!
The Liberty Foundation is touring this gorgeous WWII era Boeing B-17F that was featured in the 1989 movie "Memphis Belle". I only need $150 more and I can go for a ride! Any one want to donate?

My father designed, engineered and built a fence extension for our west fence yesterday. I like to think that all my mechanical ability and fascination comes from my Dad. This project is so simple, yet so remarkably genius, I had to post about it. Thanks so much Dad!
|We had some "help". Here he is taking a rest away from the saw.|
|He climbed everything like a monkey.|
|One panel in. Notice the vinyl panel is framed by the 2 x 6's? By the way, the ladder is 8 feet tall. This is what we've needed at this house ever since the house next door was built.|
|One of the many reasons for this fence extension, our view from our bathroom. We were tired of the neighbors looking into our bathroom and sitting on their patio just staring at us on ours.|
|Ahhh... No more idiots to look at!|
