Pipe dream cafe

Yep, it's been a detour alright.
5 months worth

Road closed?

Not a chance
we are battling on.

Endless meetings with the city
people who love to hear their own voices
 jibber jabber

Good Grief.

  3/4 inch water pipe to
a whopping
1 inch pipe

Did you know we are part of the beautification team
of our little mountain town?

somehow we need to pay for all this
  Pierre is digging for gold

these are the floor joists
 he had to cut a hole in the floor and dig a 4 ft hole where the pipes meet up

Public parking is next

and here is the motherlode
  the main pipe that they're
connecting too.

ain't this a beauty
 this is the machine that will shoot the pipe right in to connect underneath the cafe

the pipe
the 1 inch pipe.

and we thought we just needed a little renno.

Pierre came home last night after a 12 hour workday
 full of dirt & dust
looked at me
 with a big smile
"I like what money can do
- it gets things done"

Nothing makes me me feel happier than to see my husband happy!
it has been a long road.
 but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel

or should I say water at the end of the pipe?


  1. Hooray for pipes being put in and happy husband's!
    Sounds like your town is like ours with all the red tape; makes me so glad we are no longer in construction!
    Have a great weekend and I hope you strike gold!

  2. I hope that one inch pipe lasts a couple of lifetimes! won't be long now, will it?

  3. Now it will go a lot faster...I hope! Glad it went well for you this week!

  4. this is ridiculous my dear!!! glad you're close! all for a quarter inch?! now. how on earth did i miss your sons haircut post? so so so dang darling. with hair, w/o hair, friar tuck...he is so handsome and wholesome! we do the stool outside too! love it!

  5. Yeah for the light at the end of the tunnel!

  6. AWESOME!!! can i tell you how excited i am to visit one day, swing into the cafe, meet fiona? yep. totally coming to montana.

  7. That's great to hear - onwards and upwards!

  8. camilla i missed why you are doing all this? but i'm glad to hear the good news, and it's getting closer to your goal.


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
