Big red truck all full of bricks and sand and mortar.
10 pallets of bricks...whitish on the outsides. See the cool cagey things...
Big red scooper upper...and someone figured out exactly how to stack the bricks to leave the holes for the scooper upper to slide into...brilliant, eh?
Here they come! He directs it all from the little box in his hand and a tap on a corner now and then.
2nd pallet gently lowered to the ground.
See anything cool in this picture?
See the face of the Big Red Truck Machine?
From his other side...looks good from both sides....friendly.
Next a box full of sand that he moved by scooping it up from the bottom...
...and dumped by scooping it up into the air from the top...gravity at work!
More sand and a manual placement of the hook...magic box still in his hand.
This one had to be manually opened and
closed but it uses the same tool that is for putting the hold down straps on and off with. Good thinking!
He hung the scooper upper on the back of the cab of the truck with only 2 tries! Practice.
Empty Big Red Truck Machine going home.
So, today we went out to work and it pretty much started raining gently...we continued to work because it felt so good, and Stevie was there to help for the first day.
We built one of the bathroom walls and stood it up.
Oh, and then stopped to smile for the camera that my little husband was trying desperately to keep dry.
And Stevie took a picture of the two of us, since we don't get many with both of us. Pitiful, huh?
