Weekend project…

Kay C.- I don’t have to wait till school is out to work on the “Money Pit” projects- I’ll just get them done sooner (and more of them).
This past weekend we finished the french drain. Last year we attempted {{popup 1try.JPG 1try 640×480}} this drain. The patio man said no and tried {{popup 2tryflop.JPG 2tryflop 640×480}} this (see corner behind table- had a pop-up drain).It didn’t work so we went to work to make a new ditch. Here is what you {{popup this.JPG this 640×480}} need plus a lot of muscle. Then we dug a {{popup 1dig.jpg 1dig 480×640}} ditch, layed down a {{popup rock.jpg rock 480×640}}rock bottom, put in the {{popup pipewsock.jpg pipewsock 480×640}}pipe, covered it with more {{popup covered.jpg covered 480×640}}rock,covered that with {{popup dirtpaper.JPG dirtpaper 640×480}}paper and dirt and finally dressed it with {{popup topsoil.jpg topsoil 480×640}}topsoil. Now we just need to lay sod (if we could find some). It rained last night and appears to work well. This is why I needed a hot tub yesterday!

    Kay, you are too funny.

    But La, seriousely, you need that hot tub so you and Linda can relax. You ladies are working machines and you need to bubble a little in between projects. Hard work pays off though and your house is coming along great!

    I think you should go get a job with the DOT. You’ve done more work then they will get done all summer! I’ll send you and Linda matching ORANGE shirts. Clark probably has left over hard hats you can borrow and you’ll be all set! Perks- you get to take a 4 hr lunch and then just stand around like you know what you’re doing, but don’t get any work done. (OK that is my bitch for the day)
