I did get the cap on the front of the roof today, not much to look at, but at least it is done and tidy.

We have been having a substantial breeze here for most of the day, and that is one thing that Japanese maples do not like.

So I have started on a screen of sorts to cut the wind down where it comes whistling through from the bay. The intent isn't to stop it, but to break it up so it doesn't do any more damage.

The viewing station will also help cut the wind down.

This little bit of framing was hastily put up, and I will try to get the screens in tomorrow.

The flowers are beautiful and your photography is perfect again. I just can't get over how much work you can do, are you sure there aren't three of you slangin sawdust and pounding nails there.

Now Jim...I thought I asked you to keep that between you and me!

Today - this very afternoon - is THE TRANSIT OF VENUS!

If you have clear skies and a safe way to look at the sun, try it. Next time will be 105 years from now.

I'm headed outside to see it now, thanks buddy.

I didn't see anything yet, maybe it will be better after while.

Too many clouds here to see anything yet. The transit starts locally in just over two hours. I'm not holding out a lot of hope, as we are still getting minor sprinkles from time to time.

Thanks for the assist on the fencing ideas. One of my challenges with this is that it will also be for keeping people out of the pool, and the authorities that be are quite strict on what can and can't be. I will keep looking and see what I can come up with. Maybe when I get some work done on it I can send a photo or 2. Your home is looking wonderful, not that any of us are surprised at that as you do such great work. Thanks again I will look into Green and Green.

I got to thinking that I should have an old welding lens around here somewhere so my son scrounged around and sure-nuf come up with one. We had an old #10 tucked away. The Sun was still kinda bright but with the addition of a pair of dark dark sunglasses I had I was able to view the little devil perfectly. Actually it's an amazing sight for sure. Right now Venus is at (about) the one o'clock position just inside the edge of the Sun.

I tried several times. My eye sees the activity perfectly, in fact it has left an indelible impression on my mind, but the camera lens wasn't as cooperative. All I got was a blur. I think the problem was trying to hold the welding lens in one hand and the camera in the other. Clicking the shutter was too much movement. I changed the F-stop to 500 and still no luck. Then I set the shutter release to auto so I didn't have to click it manually and that wasn't any help either. So...POOP!
