The Great Column Adventure! Part 6.


Please confirm that I am not hallucinating. Do you see TEN contiguous columns? Are there two to the far left? Then two pair on each side of the limestone steps? Then two pair over to the right? If so, then this means that I am not suffering from hallucinatory desire/lust/hope, and that for the first time in many many many decades the Cross House has TEN contiguous columns along the west side of the main porch. And this be a miracle!



Do you STILL see ten continuous columns? If so, whew! Whew! Oh, and see the stone plinth to the far right? Guess what happens tomorrow….?

    I see 10! You must be having some really good weather in Kansas to be making this kind of progress in January! Going for 12 tomorrow? Great job-it looks amazing.

      It was 72 today! 72! Then 50 tomorrow, and then back down down down to normal winter weather.

      It was great while it lasted!

    Ross that looks absolutely amazing!! I think after all that, I would have set up a lawn chair in front and sat there and just stared at it for a good hour. Knowing you, you probably did. LOL. I take that back. Knowing you, you probably looked and admired, then got busy on the next one, haha.
