The stiff breezes lately caused an upgrade for my new windsock
When I first got it home, I just wanted to see it up and flying, so I used bungee cords to attach the pole to the upright on my bike rack. I knew that this would be a temporary way for mounting the windsock – and sure enough, the next day winds were brisk enough to cause a problem.
Fortunately, Quartzite has a couple of good hardware stores – so off I went to Herb’s Hardware on N. Main (Hwy 95). I picked up some U-bolts and wing-nuts that looked to be the right size. I did measure but am never sure if something is going to be just right or just a tad wrong. This time the sizes worked just right!
The desert is not so deserted
|No idea - it's not even attached to the ground - maybe someone had a sign here - it's right by a crossroad|
|El Paso Natural Gas - Row marker|
|No idea - just a concrete pad with a rusty thing imbedded in the top.|
The nicer weather means more sitting outside in the sun (for me and Fay Wray).
