I thought I still had the strength to build a foundation stone wall. L5 in my back says differently... but I am still plugging along. Two glasses of XXX triples my strength

Gotta get more flat stones for the top of the last part. Yes, Franco it does make me appreciate the Incas. I have always wondered what make of skid steer they used. Coming up in a coupla weeks more photos of chimney drilling . That should amuse the Berwick Sadist Society ... HAHAHAHAHAHAHA ETC.

Yeah, that kinda stuff can make the "body check book" run dry. :D

I wore out my back while wearing out a shovel and contractors wheel barrow moving 42 tons of crushed stove to make a 250 foot driveway and two parking areas, plus jacking up and rebuilding my barn's stone foundation, plus a foot deep of thermal mass under my barn's radiant heat slab. Then there's moving stone to build a couple of retaining walls,... all in the first year here.

That stone stuff will wear out a body ! :D

Except to sit by the stove. ;)

And, now I see why you have so many stoves. Saves having to remember which room you put it in ! :D

Well it was almost my last stupid idea but the dry weather encouraged me to continue.

Gotta follow the Betsy Ross protocol as regards the honor flag. Yes, at night the flags will always be illuminated. I am old enough to remember when we were proud of that flag. Oh well, times change.
