    If you want to know what it looked like in Apetlon in my childhood, just go to Hungary. It's almost the same.

    Our houses were like these. We had power supply lines hanging over the streets.

    While I was waiting:

    There's a very small park.

    Nice photos, Johanna. I especially like the war memorial and the antique hose wagon.

    Thank you!
    I always was fascinated by this hose wagon and wanted to take a picture since I saw it for the first time months ago. Today there was time enough. :)

    I visited my friend Cathie, also a hummingbird bander, at her home in rural southern Illinois. We spend a couple of hours this morning catching hummingbirds in her yard. I think we got around 50 birds, mostly recaptures of ones she had banded there in previous years. Here we are each measuring birds just trapped.

    BTW, it's important to remain inconspicuous and blend into the surroundings...hence my camouflage shirt. ;)

    Perfect! The shirt made it almost impossible to detect you. :D

    A hobby for the patient and a delicate hand.
    Never met a Hawaiian shirt I didn't like. :)

    That must be delicate work measuring those hummingbirds!

    Thanks.

    There is an ⅛ to ¼ inch gap between the top step and rear posts. I did this so I could swing the rear posts just a bit to get a nice level seat from back to front on each riser. I put one screw in, set them in place to level, then put three more screws into the leg from the stringer (Home Depot calls them risers). The posts are also screwed into the back board which is screwed into the stringer, for even more support. This gives it a good bond on two of the four sides of the posts. I used 2 ½ inch screws to get nice deep penetration into the posts.

    So, the stringers are holding almost all the load, directly or indirectly.

    I did sink a screw into the step above the post, to add more stability against wobble.

    In my head this still didn't seem sturdy enough, and I was going to use scraps to add more bracing around the posts. But when I got it built it was unshakably solid. Still, I'll keep an eye on it, and if things seem to loosen up I'll be shoring it up.

    In that case tp you have it made in the shade as they say at Home Depot. You won't need any further bracing unless these are steps to an Ark and some hippos and rhinos are going to use them. "Step" - self explanatory, "Riser" - the upright at the back of the step, "Stringer" - the notchity thingy that sits at an angle for the steps to go on. Praps the plumber was in the wrong department. Lol

    It looks like you used the new pressure treated that looks like cedar. Nice looking wood!

    Not as delicate as crimping the tiny numbered bands around their legs.
