Been in one of my periodic posting slumps. Doing yard work, configuring a drip system for SLW's new plants, sawing and stacking wood, and goofing off with TLG doing "Science Experiments" and whatnot.
Well Seasoned Fool invited the three of us to see some alpaca shearing at a relative's place in Pierce, CO. TLG was a bit overwhelmed with all the people, but looked at all the animals being sheared, and was interested in the peacocks they keep, but wouldn't get too close to them. He got a bit rattled with all the thunder and rain, and wanted to go home, so we left after an hour or so.
I learned that both alpacas and llamas are related to camels, of all things, which explains their spitting. Apparently if they get really agitated they can expel the entire contents of their stomachs, and hurl it up to 10~12 feet! YOW!
WSF has quite a collection of pix over at his place, and he explains things far better than I can.
We're supposed to have decent weather for the next week or so, and hopefully I'll be able to get the rest of the wood cut up and stacked so it'll be ready for the Winter.
And I'm getting back to work on the front bumper of the Supra. Have some sanding to do, another wipe ("skim coat") of the "Bumper Bite" followed by some sanding and priming, and then (ALL fingers and toes crossed) a coat of the special black flexible bumper paint.
Then I can put all the lamps and grille back in, and DRIVE it!
