May 18, 2013 was the date that the wife and I were privileged to attend the graduation from Drury University in Springfield, Mo of our youngest son Jacob and his wife Amanda. Very proud of both of them that they went back to school and earned their 4 year degrees. The photos below are of the event.
The photos below were taken after the graduation before they had to return the gowns.

Following the graduation we traveled to south Campbell to Fuji's Japanese Seafood and Steakhouse to celebrate. The food was delicious and was prepared on the grill in front of us as a show. There was plenty of food and although I was feeling very full I wish there could have been just one or two bites more. Has to be good food that fills one up and still leaves a person wanting more. The video below is part of the show and is a onion made into a volcano. Bucky's eyes sure got big when this happened right in front of him.
Our oldest granddaughter graduated from the 8th grade at Norwood R-1 Schools in Norwood, Mo on Tuesday, May 14, 3013. Below are some photos taken of the event.
This one was taken prior to the start of the event.

We are now committed as Skeezix and I have dismantled the old greenhouse and there is not turning back now. We continued with this operation until we had it all cleaned up and ready to mow the area.
We have greenhouse building materials on hand and ready to begin.
The frame is up and ready to continue.
Shelves for the plants and the ends are framed in.

North end again. Made the hinge for the door from very used baler belting.
Shelves were made from stacking old tires with the rims still inside two high and then laying old tin for the actual shelf. Used screws like the ones for putting on metal roofing to attach the time in place. Dimensions of the greenhouse are approx 14 feet long and 12 feet wide. Have less than $200 invested.
