Spent the morning at the new Lair build site

Just hauling 2X12s down from the staging area to the trenches. Didn't get anywhere near all of them down before running out of steam, but everything I need for the footer (except concrete, and that's a bridge I'm going to have to figure out how to cross) is now at least on site. Spent some time afterward, just enjoying the spot, smoking my pipe under a juniper with Magnus and Fritz; Butch had gone home and Ghost was off somewhere. After a few minutes Ghost came back, saw what we were doing, and decided that what was needed before he could join the pastoral scene was a nice comfy hollow under the bush. So he proceeded to shower me with dirt and old needles, which did sort of take the bloom off the occasion. Ah, well...
