Got walls almost all around the roof area now. The last section needs castillos (posts) to support a future screened room plalapa and I picked up the materials for that last night. Even included two galvanized posts for a future clothes line.
We're hoping the guys that put up the wood supports for the roof will take them down today so we can start work inside the house next week. Lots of cleanup and wiring yet to do before any stucco work can be done.
The two fotos below are of Jimmy and Sandy's place behind me. The house represents about 6 weeks work. Still another course of bricks before he does the roof. Their garden is looking good and is about two years along. I still don't have room for much in the way of plants.
Yesterday Sandy was taking down clothes from the line when she was stung by a scorpion hiding in a clothes pin. They are here without a car so I drove them both to Centro de Salud to get the normal anti-venom injection and pain pill. Doctor said that getting her there within 20 minutes saved her from a major reaction. All is well
