Ryan sent me pictures of the large columns he put up...by himself...helper didn't show. While he is an extradinarilly resourcefull man this made me really nervous worrying that he would get hurt...the columns weigh around a ton or more are larger at the top to support the trusses eventually and he was pulling them up with a forklift, placing them over four bolts and then climbing up a ladder on the side some twenty feet up to release the strap...probably best I was at work and didn't know about this til I got home....then Mom is complaining about back and chest pain...so she will bear watching and I got the livestock fed just before dark and everyone was restless and several had knocked over water buckets which had to be refilled. The cart is in and is not quite what we ordered but probably will work...a friend put it together for me today...mixed emotions there. I am looking forward to waking up tommorro because right now I am pretty tired.
