Monday April 1: Hubby finally got a seven-letter word and beat my score with QUANTIFY:

April 2: Gazebo, shower tent and cot back up...but noted AFTER I put it up---HIGH WIND week...sigh...roped it and staked it better. Repositioned surveillance cameras too to catch every inch of the property and alert me on the air vehicles over my land flying under the radar very low this week over my home and this area...aka red helicopter.

another surveillance view to the land:

the gazebo is back up but different to place certain spots on surveillance cams.

views of the cam shots:
