Girls are here

We picked up the girls this morning. 6 to start off. They hatched about a day or two ago. For the next few weeks they'll brood in a wood box that I cobbled together using scrap osb from the patio project last summer and some short pieces to 2x4.
Well this should be fun.

Summer Fun

I was going through the camera today and found a cool pic I took last summer.

It was such a beautiful day today. Besides walking the dog with the boy and some yard work I also squeezed in a bike ride. And this year i have been tracking the rides using With the app loaded on my phone it tracks my route and speed and all kinds of other shit. Then the web site gives me embed code to fly over the route. Here it is"


Pretty damn cool if i do say so. Oh  yeah I nearly forgot to mention. A big doe jumped out in front of me at mile 13-ish. i missed her by about 20 feet. If I were going faster, definitely would have hit her.
