Pictures of recent progress ( 2021)




2-13-2021 This is what the castle looks like on the 13th of February 2021.



I did get this door on the great hall finished last year, but did not have time to post the photo at that time.



I also got this door on the great hall finished last year, but did not have time to post the photo.



About the only thing I have done so far this year is to get the last curved top piece poured. This will go on top of one of the merlins on the tower on the great hall.



5-14-2021 When I was taking Smokey out for a walk, he noticed this baby bird on the drawbridge. When he went over to sniff it, it jumped off the drawbridge into the grass. The baby bird can not fly yet. His mommy and daddy were flying around trying to scare me away, but I managed to get a photo anyway. Baby bird should be able to fly in the next day or two. There may be more babies, there is a nest high inside the gatehouse.



6-4-2021 We had a visit today from our friend Charlie Cicada. He said he is on his way to find a Cicada nightspot for a little chirping, dancing, and whatever. I think he is just looking for a hot babe Cicada. He said he had not gone for a night out for many years and was looking forward to having some fun.
