Leo came and put the eves trough up. Now that I have a ladder, this means that all I have to do is hook up a barrel to it next spring in order to have running water in the in-house. I decided to put two downspout holes in it. One for the garden water which is using chain instead of a downspout simply because I saw this on the internet and liked the look. I will let you know how it works.
He brought someone fantastic with him. Beautiful blue eyed Izzie. She was a very good sport about the thousand kisses that Rudigrrr placed on her little cheeks. She is a very quiet little girl, totally easy going. I had to play with her of course! I also sang and played a bit of music for her and she never once complained. I am not a good musician so this was pretty cool. She also let me read “The Giving Tree” to her and since I don’t know her that well, I totally can’t believe how easily she just let me entertain her! What a sweet child!
When Leo, Kyle and Izzie left, we worked on the cloth porch to get it closed up but did not get quite finished. The green tarp had a salamander living in it, and while trying to help it to the ground the poor thing fell about 5 or 6 feet from the tarp to the ground. It walked away after laying stunned for about 30 seconds. I hope it will be okay. Anyone know anything about salamanders? This sweet little one was a darkish colour with a yellow stripe. We have a lot of them around THO, but I don’t know much about them. They sure are cute and tiny… I love their itty-bitty fingers.
Hmmmm… I did not think about that. Water is at a premium because there is no well. I will be sure to keep my eye on it, thanks for the heads up Michael!
The biggest problem with the “chain downspouts” is wind. If the wind is blowing most of the water will go where the wind tells it to go.
