I have mentioned that we have had several projects going on and that I get tired just watching them. I thought I would take a photo of one of the projects. The builder of this house had created a carport over the driveway, but as was many of his efforts, it was less than acceptable.
In a rain, if you drove under the covered area, you would still get soaked when you got out of the car. The new car port will be a little lower, wider and extended toward the street. You can see the original carport and the outline of the new. The concrete beams are just getting ready to be poured/
I think it will make a big improvement on the looks of the house.
You can’t see the right side of the house, but it has had a new two car garage with an electric garage door. I consider that another large improvement to the house. Besides providing a secure area for the cars, it will also provide some much needed storage for garden tools, mower, etc.
The photo was taken by one of my security cameras that faces the front street.
I was requested to post the following.

There’s only so much I can do for Earth Day, but at the very least, I’ll turn off my Christmas lights for a few minutes.
Hot shower two days in a row. Yesterday was followed by 12 hours of water outage. I am hoping whatever repair has been going on is finished. I don’t like going to the refrigerator and not being able to get cold water.
Worse, I hate hauling in water from the swimming pool to flush the toilets. I am just lucky I am in an area that rarely is out of water.
The birds are chirping and I hear a rooster crowing in the distance. I know this is going to be a good day.
Living with a toddler is like using a blender with no lid.
If it wasn’t for dumb luck, most people would just be dumb.
I wish Lilliam would let me show her who the boss is around here.
I went by the postoffice yesterday and had a note stating that a package was being held for me. The package was a signed copy of The Execution. This was the second copy that Sharon Cramer, author of The Execution, had sent me.
The first was not sent registered mail and walked off. I contacted Sharon, after I thought sufficient time had passed for me to receive the first book.
I regret that she had to pay $22 to send this one registered, but I am grateful that this one survived the Panama mail system. It was postmarked January 21 in the US and I was unable to find the date it was received in David.
The Execution has been a memorable experience for me. In my original post, i wrote how I came to find the Execution and how the writing affected me.
However, to me the book brought me more enjoyment than just a good read, because I gained a friend by getting to know the author. Only a friend would send not one but two books to ensure that it was received. The Internet has allowed me to meet several wonderful people that I would not otherwise have met.
The Execution, which I would say is intended for an adult audience, is on the opposite end of the spectrum to Sharon’s other books which are aimed at the younger generation, such as my grandkids. Her books can be found on her webpage.
Sharon has been fortunate and The Execution is being released as a movie. I think every author’s dream is to have his or her work turned into a movie. I congratulate her. Her books are available in hardcopy in all the major distribution formats. The Execution FaceBook page is located HERE.
Thank you Sharon for this memorable experience. I look forward to the movie.
Fire hazards are never a good thing.
Except maybe in golf. That would be awesome.
Glad I had my shower early this morning. It was cold because there wasn’t much pressure, but I made it.
Now at 9:30 AM, there is no water. Hopefully it will return soon.
Noon: Looks like the water outage is over for the moment.
1:15 PM The water is back off. May be time for a dip in the pool.
7:30 PM Sometime between 5:00 PM and now the water came back. Whew!
