The big mean roostaur got going today (yesterday was dedicated to planting around 50 new plants that finally arrived in the mail, #2 of 3 rounds of mail-order plants to go in this year). All his “windows” were chased out for starters, then his comb was polished up and welded into position. Next the legs eventually met with the body. This took a lot of experimenting with clamps, torsion, and hammer blows. The tail sat in place with the magic of gravity and zippered into place. I skipped lunch, and it finally caught up with me around 4pm, so I shut things down and mowed the lawn before hitting the shower. Soon though, he’ll have all his parts in place.
