ERIC'S BIG GREEN EGG
ALDO LEOPOLD BENCH
...SIDE VIEW (PLANS AVAILABLE ON WEB FROM MANY SOURCES)
Sunday, 8:45 AM. 47.5 degrees, up from 33 degrees at dawn. Wind WSW, calm. The sky is mostly clear except for some thin stratospheric clouds. The barometer is up, predicting mostly sunny weather.
We went to dinner at neighbors Eric and Nancy’s yesterday evening, along with neighbors Don and Heidi and their visiting son Steve. The conversation, dinner and libations were excellent. Eric cooked port tenderloin in his new Big Green Egg charcoal grill, the likes of which are becoming quite an item in Bayfield.
The Aldo Leopold Bench is extremely simple in design, looks like it would be unstable but is not. It will fit in nooks and crannies that a regular bench won’t. The plans are available on the web, I couldn't upload the PDF for some reason. This one was built by new neighbor Mike on 9th and Manypenny, who says he placed it on the side of the road for the benefit of some old dude who struggles up the hill with his equally old dog every morning. I guess I should be grateful, Mike.
