And water is being served.
Sorry it is dark but I didn’t want to get too close and frighten him away.
Put water out and here they come.

Berm

Berm is not a word I use in everyday language except perhaps with my neighbor. Now I get to built some. Major monsoon rain thunder storm last night resulted in erosion paths.
Berms slow down the flow. Except when desert rain turns to white water rush I am not sure how effective a “slow” or berm will be.
I will choose where to put the steps for asthetic and ecological benefits.
Please believe this week I will put berm into my everyday language.
” So what have you been doing?”
“OH, I have been designing and constructing berms.”

Pre-sunset Walk

It takes life in in the desert to see and respect the power of water.

Up the road.

Back home as the sun sinks behind the mountains.

Shine On Alum Can******

I walked the line checking for leaks or damage came back and since the sun was shining on the Aluminum Can I figured O would light the hot water heater. I am getting too good at lighting the pilot light. As I was doing that I heard the sound of water dripping. Yes, I had left the tub faucet open a drop and all is now functioning inside the alum can.

I am still going to the gym for a work out, sauna and steam.

What a Treasure!

Foot Fountain

 

Walking State Street in Media, PA I found a treasure. An original drinking fountain with a foot pedal! The town itself is cute quaint creative and cultural but this fountain won my heart. Now who ever thought using your hand to press a plate would be more effective than this bronze foot pedal.  Guess they never had to hold a squirming child or balance a package. All that aside, isn’t this a fantastic find! A beauty!
