2wils and zaffer could be co-stars of an awesome special interest program.
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

2wilz doesn't have a whiskey bottle checkerboard on the veranda... yet.

I like that pic. Must be when the rainy season is far on the horizon.

Zaffs has posted a lot of pics of himself I think. But if he objects I can take it down.

I love the rock stem walls!


One and only. Stem walls are about hip high inside and suitable for a three-and-a-half inch beer width ledge.

That looks pretty bombproof and not too bad aesthetically.

I had a drunk for an architect, a sadist for a structural engineer, a stoner for a foreman, an idiot for a project manager, and a Mexican.

Thank God for the Mexican. The number of times he looked at me and said, "Dan???"

It's bombproof to Seattle Building Code seismic requirements, which I learned applying in Seattle, and has performed beautifully of late.

Pancho also said, "If a Mexican spent this much money he'd have a much bigger house."

Avocados are sixty-six cents per pound.

Pancho could say that about anything in Mexico, compared to Gringo prices.

Are those three porch columns wood or stone, and where did you get them?

They're wood, and I bought them about fifteen miles northwest of here. Pichataro.

Nice pics 2wilzgood. Those columns wouldn't be out of place in the pacific islands.

It was the link that his wife posted of her swimming naked with dogs that I objected to. Clear violation of the ToS on grounds of taste and decency

The columns will probably be coming down in the next earthquake. No harm, no foul.

The important thing is that your adobe is only 2/3rds high. I would still buttress the corner around your bed with some one-inch plywood from the stem wall up. And place something higher than you next to the bed in order to catch the roof, like a bureau or a fridge or a bookcase. Otherwise, it looks survivable in the next terremoto. A light, metal roof is always key, and the rectangular core construction helps. L-shapes fail first.

If there is an earthquake, its the cook boys job to hold the roof up while Zaffer makes his escape

I plan to head out to Zaffer's part of the world next weekend to visit an old friend of mine.

Lives a similar lifestyle to old Zaff in those parts amongst his various beasts - including a herd of Ridgebacks (dogs), though last I heard two of them had been poisoned.

Last time I went out there his neighbour (an old Afrikaner) arrived in a horse drawn cart. We cooked a leg of Warthog under the stars and got drink on Mampoer:

Did I ever tell you about hand-digging the forty foot deep well?

Zaffer would be fifty-six this year. Sadly missed.
