May your blessings be many, your health and happiness extreme, and your lines be tight!

Here's to PB's for everyone in 2023!

 

Had to finish phase two of the new fence because my daughter had new boxes of lights, bows, and garland burning a hole in her britches! Had to form the first seven posts because of rock. 80 lb bags of Sakrete weigh lots more than they used too!1779110802_IMG_2095Resized.JPG.44e983fad9b7d587b81f62e4a6ae7aac.JPG

Holy tamale @Blue Raider Bob is that a concrete driveway like a quarter mile long?!

It is 700 ' long. It runs past my house down to my barn. I bought that for my wife's Christmas present last year. She has been wanting it for the twenty five plus years we have lived there. She was a jogger and jogged around the farm on a trail I kept manicured for her. As time went on she developed osteoporosis and her toes and feet started breaking. She had to limit her exercise to walking and the trail became to dangerous with all the mole tunnels, roots, ect.  We finally got the money together last fall so I could make it happen, and now she can walk her six miles on a fairly level surface.

So beautiful, Bob. I've lined my driveway with paperbark maples. I love a lined driveway, be it trees or fence or in your case, BOTH!

Send pictures! I need visual. My dad could see an acorn and imagine an oak tree. I just see an acorn and imagine an acorn.

Wow, that's awesome!  She's a lucky woman to have such a caring and capable husband.  If that would have been me I would have brought home a treadmill and hung my head in shame 😆

That is a lot of concrete.

     Yes! I am in the homebuilding business so I know lots of contractors and suppliers. The redi-mix company that supplied me also build homes and is one of my best customers. Still it turned out to be a very expensive outlay but she loves it and that make my life terrific! After all she has given me four kids and she won't take them back!

     One of the benefits of the concrete over gravel is now I can speed walk and slow jog myself. Got up to a mile without stopping before I pulled a hammy. Gonna start back again soon. Got my heart racing as fast as Alex's video of the 7 lb bass!
