Mason's water pump

Okay in my last post I wrote that Mason was designing a water system in case we hit hard times, I have to say I am impressed. I will post a picture of it later but it came equipped with stabilizers, a solar power pump with a wind mill to back it up on cloudy days. This pump would remove dirty water from a lake, take it down a long process of purification through a series of strainers and in the end adding salt to purify. It also came with an automatic sensory shut off valve to keep it from flooding. He is pretty sure it would annoy the ducks though with the noise that his power pump would make. In questioning him further he said "who cares about the ducks?" He wants to build this at our community lake and then test the water to see how clean it is. He is six.

Gary just told me he drew up a design on a wind mill to send to T Boon Pickens as an alternative power source. I asked him "who told you to do that?" and he said no one I just know that T Boone Pickens likes wind power and I know we are having problems with energy and fuel. He is pretty confident that T Boon Pickens will like his design. I saw T Boones name on a paper then I tossed it, whoops.

Well my six year old boy just took a flying leap of the homeschool desk screaming a tribal cry, then calmly telling me that it was necessary. Boys will be boys.
