Looks almost like you’re putting in an inground pool.

Perish the thought:-) that's one headache I definitly don't want.

But the Mrs informed me today that the stock tank has to go. So if you can use an 8' x 2' round galvanized stock tank have I got a deal for you!

Let's here it for the Black Goo :-)

No matter how caefull you are....

No kidding. Bittygirl (who turned 4 today, HOLY COW!) got it all over her feet.

The trailer is looking good and so is "The Stiff"!!!

He's catching on to the use of tools! ;-)

Here is a Close up of the front yard after Mrs alfa6 has finnished the landscaping.

Ya'll do good work. I may need some pointers.

Both of them are having a blast.

Spiderboy ought to know enough about tools by the time we’re done to build a very nice catapult.

Awww, Bitty Girl, and Spider boy, the kids are growing so fast.

The travel trailer is coming along well, and Spiderboy is real handy with the tools.

Good grief they’re growing fast.

Spiderboy and tools are one of the reasons for building the trailer now.

The working stiff is one good young man. I didn’t see any tools in your hands dad? Of course the princess is just that so she’s free to move about her kingdom. :-)

bought another just like it, so Project Teardrop is moving again.

Egads you're brave! Be sure and put a fire extinguisher in that new teardrop!

If you click the south button twice our house is on the corner of the next street west of 15th st:-)

Msdrby’s brother just got Spiderboy a Fender Stratocaster for an early b-day gift. Maybe he’ll be viewed 43 MILLION times...

Holy Smokes, the kid is tearing up the chords. I guess you mean that Spiderboy’s guitar is like the one we see??

Actually it is the same. Jimi Hendrix and a few others have used it too.

Really, I hope he does something more than make noise with it.

My Dear Uncle Louie , My Dad’s only Brother

was a 25 year old Merchant Marine and he lost his life

on one of those 17 ships , along with many other people

my Dad was only 19 &

in the United States Army at that time

& he is still here with us , at 84 ,

& he tells me that there were 18 ships...

If anyone has or knows of anyone who had family killed

during that bombing, I’d like to speak with him or her...
