If I ever move, I will have to call Les and beg him to build me a Pompeii just like his.

Good to have you back Les...and congradulations on the grad. Great that she is done and probably a tremendous financial relief as well! I look forward to that day myself. I have two in college and another that is only two years away. I haven't been this broke in years!

Keep up the world-class work.

dusty

PS- Missed you at Acoma's party. Thought you might be there.

Thanks Dusty - I had other commitments the day of Roberts party. Hopefully there will be more.

You're right about the kids getting out of college. My son is 1.5 years away and then they both will be off the daddy plan. I'm going to save a fortune in car insurace alone.

OK Boy's and Girl's - this is getting very interesting. This is row eleven (one more to go), and if I can get 7-8 bricks in a night, I'm a happy man. It looks like the center will be about 3/8 inch below the target of 21 inches. That's because of the keystone at the 13th course (Duh! Train had lights and sound - didn't see it or hear it until I was stuck in the tracks (again).

Looks like they're hanging up there by magic...

I take it there is some mortar involved now though?

Frances - as with the first row, there is mortar on the backside to maintain the gap.

Jim - if I added more pictures, it would be like watching grass grow. This has evolved into a very slow process

Dave - Thanks!

Ah, but what a photo. Very soothing. Time and gravity suspended; perfection captured.
