Installed Dome and Unusual Visitor

Woke Tuesday morning to find the boys glued to the window, which in itself is not unusual. They seem to get a lot of visitors including bunnies, red squirrels, deer, mink and pileated woodpeckers, they see it all.

Much to my surprise, todays visitor was a very large beaver.
Not only was this a new animal for the boys but this one hung around for quite some time. Then, with the cats stretching to watch his every move, the beaver slowly turned down the path toward the lake, reached the shoreline and just disappeared under the water.
I left for work an hour later and they were still at the window wondering what the hell that was and where did it go.

And now for some Observatory news

Lester and I got the dome mounted today, it took a bit of Rube Goldberg engineering, luck and some brute force, but it went up surprisingly well with no death or serous injury! Sorry no photo's Lester didn't think he could hold it by himself for a quick snap shot (what a puss)
I had painted the trim yesterday and installed it today before Lester showed up, I'm very happy with Hun's color choices, now all we need is to install and paint the door.
I'll take inside photo's tomorrow.
