It’s still darn hot outside, but that didn’t stop all us hermits from heading back to the country near Milano to get more stuff from that sale.
We went to get the metal beams we saw yesterday. They will grow up to be supports for the extended cover for the horse stalls. We spent all the money we each brought but got so much metal and other cool stuff. Of course, Kathleen found cool things to repurpose.
Of course, I mainly looked at nature, trying to find dragonflies. I ended up finding a lot of cool insects that were new to me. Fascinating!
I feel like this next thing is stingy.
I saw two of these nasty-looking things. One was eating a fly. Really looks like it could sting badly.
Some things I saw were old friends like this guy.
It’s blurry, but a wolf spider.
Some insects were cuter than others.
Anyway, it was fun. We stayed a long time, sweated a lot, and did a lot of negotiations. We even saw friends way out here! and a former friend of some sort. Kathleen found someone’s head.
I’m glad we are easily amused by rusty metal and the flora and fauna of a post oak savanna.
The good news is that even though we spent money, this stuff would have cost many times the amount new.
And we have all sorts of building blocks for future projects. We are all excited. Even though we were hot.
We filled a trailer with stuff, put sir in the tires, and made it home!
