Our New Fence?
The new Home Depot ad came out today and this stuff is going for about $56/panel. (That doesn't include the posts and fancy Gothic toppers.) Not a bad price though. Carole is on board for now -- 'til she changes her mind.
I need to see what Lawrence is doing next week, or maybe next weekend!
I drove to work today and had to stop for gas on the way home. It was a fortuitous stop, despite the more expensive gas. (I wanted to get gas in Missouri, but the station opposite the bridge was packed. Not worth the fight for a couple bucks.) I ran into my cousin. I'll probably hear all about it from one of my neighbors who saw me uptown kissing on a guy!
He had told me months ago that when the time came to tear down the old fence, he would gladly haul away the old one. Awesome. Something I wouldn't have to worry about after knocking it down.
I filed that offer away, fully planning to cash it in. Now, not only will my adorable, half-Italian cousin (whom we've always affectionately called "Dago") haul it away, he said he had planned all along to bring a backhoe and politely pluck each panel out of the ground and then loft it into a dump truck. Now that is an offer I just can't refuse.
God love ya, Dago.
