Down and Gone Ahead of the Wind

As you can see, our greenhouse is gone. We got Les Parham with his backhoe and truck to come and in a few hours he had the whole mess down and gone. Good thing we decided to take it down when we did because the very next day we had ferocious gale force winds that would surely have blown the whole thing up to Joe City or beyond! We're still debating on what kind of greenhouse we will put in its place, probably a smaller one from a kit.
All week we have been trying to get ready to head north for an exciting adventure. Early Monday morning we will leave from Sky Harbor to fly to Seattle where we will meet friends and travel to the tip of the penninsula in Washington to a Trendwest resort in Discovery Bay. We will stay there all week and then next Saturday we will return to Seattle and embark on a 7 day Alaskan cruise. I'll post again when I get home, hopefully with pictures of whales, glaciers, totem poles and the usual touristy things.
