New Cameras, New Patio and Insulation
June 22, 2010
Austin came over yesterday afternoon and worked on his Molly DVD project. School is not out until Wednesday but he wants to get it finished, so he is here working. He said there is at least two weeks of editing to go. Donna and I have decided to delay our vacation a little longer, at least until Austin finishes he project. Never fear, we will get out of here. All the eBooks are scheduled to be completed for final review by the end of the month. The only exception is Austin’s DVD. The plan is to have them to you on or before July 9th. We will keep you updated here so check back often.
Donna and I have been using this extra time around home to get the house back in order and to clean up the yard. I thought owlets grew fast but I think weeds grow faster and are more prolific. In my spare time I have been making modifications to The Owl Box.
I first added a piece of one inch reflective foam to the back side, which is the south or sunny side of the box. This should reduce the heat build up inside the box. I removed the dowel spring board and replaced it with a solid plywood patio viewing deck. I also added two new cameras to the box, a day camera on the west or opposite end and a night vision camera above the existing day camera on the east end. The existing night vision camera was too low and got covered by two inches of gag shag. It got so gunked up that it is no longer useable. Yuk! is the best way to describe the camera when I removed it.
We got a call from San Marcos Community Foundation and they said they had received a total $8,118.32 so far. Our goal was to raise $10,000 so we are getting close. You can help by sending a Donation to San Marcos Community Foundation, be sure to write in the memo line Wildlife Conservation and Promotion otherwise it goes into their general fund and does not get counted.

The Father’s Day Special was such a big hit we are going to continue it for a week. We want everyone to have a special large framed print of the owlets, Max, Pattison, Austin and Wesley for only $49.95. What a great way to remember this event. And it was an event with 14.5 million views and you were a part of it. While out at http://www.cafepress.com/mollytheowl be sure to check out the tote bags, note cards and T-shirts.
