Our friend Nathan's (also our contractor) wife Becky brought by their young Wallaby "Roo".....lots of coyotes around here so they have to keep him inside at night.
Got buzzed by another A-10 Warthog anti-tank aircraft. The have some sort of training area around here and we have been buzzed twice (it took me a bit to take the picture, he was actually so close we could tell he needed a shave). We love them and they wag their wings, we wave, and its nice to see these young guys out enjoying the day.

Concrete gets poured tomorrow.
Rebar is embedded into the posts to tie everything together...better wind resistance
