Took a couple of hours three weeks ago to knock down the front area, then another two hours today to redo the front and add the whole side section. A lot of mowing was done to reclaim a piece of the property. We’re on 4.7 acres here.

This is the largest wooden structure, with no metal, in the world. Used to test aircraft for EMP’s. Nothing like dropping a Teravolt or two across the top wires to produce one heck of a magnetic field. Nails would be bad flying through the air.  It is all built with laminates and glue. It is behind my work.

The local Mini Dealership has an interesting way to display the car. Pretty cool really.

I didn’t realize that I have never put up any pictures of the Balloon Festival we have every October here in Albuquerque.

Just to give a person a taste, here is one of the pictures I took right after we moved here. And this is just one wave. They have to send up the balloons in waves to give them enough space.

Now that summer is approaching we see a lot of hot air balloons on our morning commute through Albuquerque. This morning there were 8 balloons up. It isn’t the ocean, but it’s a pretty sight.

I snapped this at the stoplight.
