    Did Richard Scarry see this coming 50 years ago? Bring a cigar and join the watchers.

    Can't believe "Gongoozler" isn't an Aussie term.

    Props to the guys in the RH image - it looks like they rode their bikes to the site.

    A little off topic, but this reminds me of when I went to the San Diego Zoo many years ago. It is a neat zoo, where the apes and chimps were in open space and the human visitors walked through an enclosed area.

    I saw a chimp down a pretty deep hole, digging. There were about a half dozen other chimps just standing around the hole watching, kind of like the retired guys you mention. Reminded me of a road crew.

    A couple days later, I read in the paper that they had dug out, free of the zoo for a while.

    They are a lot more like us that most give credit for.

    Or, you could spend your time tending to your new home.

    A nice variety. If the riding in the area were nice I'd definitely consider the restore flour mill. (image below)
    But given the super-affordable price, I have to wonder...
