Yeah, that has to be pretty rough working under those conditions. After the kind of winter you guys had, you probably appreciate the weather and the view that much more.

The view from the outside shower isn't going to be too shabby either!

THAT'S a smart way to set up tile out there. How is it that you can have such a long run of tiles between the two saw horses? As heavy as the tiles must be, it seems like you'd need a 3rd saw horse in the middle.

Jim, I'm curious about something. When you cut off the frog legs, what do you do with the rest of the frog?

It reminds me of the cartoon drawing of a man ordering frog legs in a restaurant. In the background is a couple of legless frogs pushing themselves through the room, in wheelchairs.

Throw the rest of the frog away, the legs are pretty big or we don't fool with them. I have shot frogs with legs as big as a chicken drumstick. Talk about throwing away some of the animal or what ever it is, I wanted to try some crabs and say a sign where they were $.50 each. I told the lady I wanted to try one. (This was back in the 60s) She brought me one and I asked her how to eat it, well she tore that thing all to pieces and dug out a little chunk of meat about the size of a thimble. I made the statement, "you mean that thing gave its life for that little dab of meat?"

By the way, do ya'll have bull frogs up your way? There is nothing like fried frog legs, thicknen gravy, biscuits and eggs for breakfast while out camping or any other time for that matter.[/quote]

If you're talking about the American Bullfrog, then no, we don't have it on Ruxton.

However, it has found its' way to Vancouver Island where it has become a serious pest in many of the lakes. So c'mon up and help yourself to all the frogs legs you might care to!

Barb, I have the tiles sitting on 2 x 10's about 14 feet long, so they're pretty strong. But you're right...they do sag a little in the middle.

Not much considering the distance and amount of weight.

Keith, I sure wish those frogs were down this way, on a good night it was hard to get 25 good frogs. If you can find them in a store here they will sell for around $9-$10 a pound.

Pretty pricey for an old frog!

The Provincial Government hired a specialist to try and reduce the Bullfrog population a couple of years ago. They did a segment on the operation on local TV which was quite interesting.

Maybe I should make a deal with the guy to buy all he gets for .10 cents a pound and ship 'em down your way.

Close sail by this morning...these folks just wanted to have a closer look at the place. He's pretty close in for a boat over 40' long.

I don't much care what I use for an excuse to quit work at the end of the day. So this evening it was a double whammy. I ran out of stain in the can, and the Ruxton Air Force (read mozzies here) came out looking for blood!

I did get a roof frame up - of sorts - and I was kind of toying with the idea of putting some tempered glass up there as well as in front of the shower.

It looks like the curved wall on the deck has put the kibosh on that idea, so I will make a cedar shingle roof instead, keep it a bit more funky.

There will be a short wall between the posts, you can see the 2 x 3 studs minus a top plate yet. I will strap that with whatever 1x's I can find and put cedar shingles on there as well.

Some time before sunset we had some promising looking clouds, well before sunset actually. So I thought of Bill and took a few pics.

Then I thought of Jim and messed with the color on the second one. Enjoy.
