To all those folks in Northeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana – in the face of Hurricane Laura – you are in our thoughts and prayers.  God keep you, stay safe, help each other, and remember:  family and life first.  Everything else can be  replaced.

A few weeks ago, we finally got our back yard area worked on.  We had a fence repaired.  A wind storm toppled it and it was propped up with some supports ever since.  We got the path on the north side of the house re-done.  We’d had it done, but it didn’t slant away from the house, so it tended to puddle, or worse, tilt water towards the house.  And, we got two small patio areas added – one with some left over bricks we’d had for years, and one with some paving squares.  Here are some before, during and after photos…

Moi assuming the position. I always swore I’d put up a hammock between those two trees!!

I Would Do Anything For Love

Favorite Line(s):
Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the god of sex and drums and rock ‘n’ roll

This thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.
