GAZEBOS , ANOTHER BRIGHT IDEA

A Gazebo, what a great idea. Yeah that would be me and one of my bright ideas. They promised it would be easy. well, so far we are still digging the foundation. Thanks to Bill who came over to tell us in english what we needed to do. I call the amish gazebo place and ask What do I need to do. He said get crushed rock. I said what is crushed rock. Well, I'm sure he's going WHAT EVER LADY. I thought it was a good question. I know about gravel but crushed rock? He said its more jagged. ok, so I ordered crushed rock. 9TONS OF CRUSHED ROCK. GREAT ! Now how do we get it to the back yard. He said thats your problem as he dumped it in the front of the house. Amish gazebos drove all the way from Pennsilvania with no problem. The crushed rock guy got lost. I'm out on the corner of Winchester waving at all the white dump trucks. Anyway, Amish Gazebos they feel very confident that we can do this. OK! RIck may have me bound and gagged for a very long time. He's thinking yeah , we should have done the kitchen. (Well, thats coming up next ). Don't tell Rick, I want to surprise him. Come on over if you dare, I'll cook dinner for anyone brave enough and carries a screwdriver. Stay tuned for part 2

Oh my Gosh!!! How in the world could they sell something like that and not warn you about installation?! Whatever! Somehow you'll get it installed. Remember the huge hole that Dad dug in the backyard, and you thought you'd never be able to fill it? Just get Dad and that big heavy equipment back and he'll have those crushed rocks in the backyard in no time. Crushed rocks?!

Oh MOM! I'm so sorry! i could totally see you out there waving them down, there are always dumb people out there that really have no idea about anything, like the driver that got lost, IN UTAH? Honestly!!!
and Crushed Rock? Thats a rock in my book, how the heck did he hear of it? ha ha ha ha - Really I had no idea there was something like that for real, and then they just dump it in the back yard, HELLO! There's a gate that you can drive right back into the back yard, he could have at least put it closer for you, THE PUNK!
Oh well, Id come over and help you but, well I'm in Washington, and Gas is outragous..I'd be better off walking, up hill, both ways, with bare feet, in the snow. (smile)
Love ya,
Aim

I can't believe how many projects(BIG PROJECTS) that you take on. The amazing part is that you do accomplish them and they are completed. Just remember Pen how much I love you and your ambition and still have time for family and whatever is needed there.

Hey Pen, We did it!!! I told Bill it would be really easy because they said so>>> Bill said it isnt what you think. As Bill was putting up the Gazebo I told him how thankful Pen and I were because we could see it wasnt what we thought. I told Bill Penni and I would have tried and all the pieces would have been laying all around us. I said we would have cryed and Bill said " I almost did" He was so cute about all of it but he said it was starting to give him nightmares at night. So glad its done. No one else will get a Gazebo so dont ask!! Love ya Pat
