Am I nuts

At last one of my many fantasies has come to be. Last night I struggled and stained but with all my might I pushed up a wind turbine in the side yard. To me it is a thing of beauty, to others driving by, I can just imagine that they are thinking. "What is he sticking up in the air now"? It is a small unit only capable of producing 600 watts of power. At the base I have added a 60 watt solar panel. At this time I'm only charging batteries for emergency power. It sets atop of a twenty foot tower but in the near future I will add ten more foot. I am hoping for a nice breeze - Am I nuts or am I still just a kid at 65.
