The past three weeks have been very busy. We ran into a couple of problems where a part of the existing building had to be removed before we could continue.
Also we’ve had a couple of days of heavy rain which created some problems as well as delays but we have made progress. All of the roof panels had to be prepared which took several days. In fact there are still a few that need to be done.
This week we started putting up the Trusses on main part of the building.
The wind was causing problems with the panels so we had to stop on the panels, but we got all of the trusses up and four of the roof panels.
Hopefully this week the wind will be a little calmer and we can get a lot more done next week. It’s supposed to rain the next four day so hope that doesn’t cause too much delay.
On one Sunday I met my two sisters at Lambert’s restaurant in Ozark, Mo. for lunch. Afterwards we went to the cemetery where our parents were buried to visit the grave site.
Last Sunday afternoon we went with one of the other couples to HA HA T0nka state park. This is a beautiful area of southern Missouri.
We hiked the top of that hill in the background to the Spring Trail Head. Following are some of the pictures along the way.
On the top of that hill is what is called the castle. This was build as a home for a wealthy businessman from Kansas City back in the 1800. It was later destroyed by fire. Just imagine the view from this place.
Today is Thanksgiving and we have so many things to be thankful for but most of all we are thankful for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We spent the day here in our RV and talked to some of our kids and grand kids. Marge fixed a great Thanksgiving day dinner.
Two more of the couples who were working with us have left. As I’ve mentioned before, that is one of the the more difficult parts of our travels. We work with people and become good friends then we move on or they do. We may see them the following year at conventions or may meet them again on another project but it’s still hard to say Goodbye.
I pray that each of you have a happy Thanksgiving day and took time to be thankful for all that you have.
