Computer Issues and Weather Woes

The long delay in posting came about because of being unable to power up the computer. An internal connection had broken, necessitating another parts purchase. I am coming to know pretty well how to take apart this machine now thanks to power issues..

The last several days have been largely spent in books. I have delved into several I have had on the shelf for a long while, and several more that I have ordered since being here. They range from a book purportedly about composting human manure (very little useful info there, I will likely post a review of that book soon) to mid-century science fiction, to political writings..

The reason these last few days have been spent in books is that after a few wonderfully warm and sunny days, we got another blast of cold, and long with that ice and rain. Certainly nothing conducive to working outside.

I strongly suspect that tomorrow Rancher Bob is going to want help finishing up the barn roof project. Since I cannot get down to the timbers I have cut without rutting up the fields anyway, due to the 3 inches of rain we've received, I might as well help him get that project done.

Bob and his wife are leaving for two weeks, so I will once again take on caring for the cattle, and the herd of dogs they have. Then I too will once again take to the road to work on some remodeling projects in Kansas..

Hopefully I can get a bit of work done on the house before I have to leave..
