Just prior to the GilGuy having met me, he was influenced in an energizing sort of way by a then-popular song. The chorus shouted out in staccato fashion: "Get up! Get up! Put the body in motion!"
So he did . . . and before long, we were phone dating, and wouldn't you know it? He was driving outside of his self-imposed 50 mile radius to meet up with me every other weekend or so.
We've had many catch-phrases as way-markers in this journey of ours, each significant in it's own right . . . and vital, too - because honestly, dahling! [spoken in my best faux British accent] "Would you care for a pork Rrrrrind??"
Pork rinds are the very sustenance of life! LOL
Okay, not really. But they are yummy. :)
Every once in awhile, we come across an event/happening/catch phrase that defines the season we are in. It just so happens, that at the close of 2012, Gil found a great indie band, local to us, who happen to be going places . . . and wrote a song befitting their new record label signing: Time To Begin. Rosco Bandana took up a resident place in our hearts, and soon the great rocakbilly-pop-indie sound filled out house many times a day.
I guess I shouldn't have been surprised by the motion this little tune brought to our semi-stalled-out building project. Yet, I am thankful for that song, as it has nudged us enough to get the ball rolling in earnest again.
That, my friends, makes my heart happy. :)

Oh, my stars! The order for Silver Gray Dorkings I had put in had arrived, and by golly, the Post Office was on duty, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, expecting me to zip on over and pick them up!
Therefore, I did. :)
So pleased. :) Just take a look at my new little clutch:
|Male Silver Grey's have a less defined "v" on their head, and the band of color extending from their eye is less pronounced.|
|A female Silver Grey Dorking chick. The linea negra extending from her eye is indicative of her gender. The 'heavy makeup' look distinguishes her from her male siblings.|
|This Silver Grey Dorking female's "v" is pronounced on her head, both in shape and color. This, coupled with eye color, reveals her gender.|
|They all settled right in to the temporary quarters they will call home for the next few weeks.|
Well, that, and I hope to put them to work in the garden. :) Welcome home, Little Bitties! Welcome home, Silver Grey's!
. . . Now, if we could only get my granddaughter, Aspen Grey to make her appearance . . .

It was that scary.
As a preventative measure, he did secure the scaffold with a beam placed in the bucket of the tractor . . . but still.
Hours and hours of work went into making the first double door - the prototype of the others yet to be made - four in all. Each will end up having it's own nuance, since we weren't fully thinking about the functionality of how they would open in regard to their placement in the barn as a whole. One will slide, the others on a swing that will accommodate the various roof pitch, etc.
I was one relieved gal when that first door was finished ~ one down: three to go! :)
I do not have a photo of the doors closed, but here is my offering of the finished hanging product . . . note how heavy these babies. are. :whew:
