Now the specifics:

Spent time Sunday and Monday getting things ready for Kathy to host her woman’s group from church.  After their meeting Monday evening I helped cleanup.  Kathy was happy with things so I’m glad I could help.  It was interesting as I sat in my room.  The ladies would pass by going from the family room where they had their meeting to the kitchenette where the food was.  Most would just glance in at the ham station and just keep going.  Only two ladies actually bothered to walk over.  Nancy who has been here before and Debbie the preacher’s wife.

The antenna project is coming along slow.  I have all the material for the most part.  Just not sure how I want to construct the driver elements.  It will come in time.  I’ll take a picture so you can roll your eyes at me when I’m done.

Spent some time in the yard this week.  Kathy was raking out flower beds then helped me cut and clear a tree that came down on our property.  The tree took part of the fence down between our place and the guy next to us that grazes cows in the field.  So I gave him a call and told him about the fence.

Only other thing was the cold front that blew through last night.  And blow it did.  Very strong winds.  Took out the power for several hours so my generator got a little workout.  But, it blew the opposite direction it blew the last time so it straightened up the antenna that it blew sideways earlier in the month.

I guess you get a break this week as that’s all I have.  Hope everyone is doing well.  Chat with you again next week.
