I've not been at the computer for a couple of days because I succeeded in wrenching my lower back while having all the fun I could muster outside fixing up the yard. Even though I had minions to do most of my bidding.....yeah right, I still had to muscle my way through some of the work. Actually if I had done as I was bid by my minions, I would have just sat down and done nothing.....but that just doesn't seem to soak in my old hard head. So ya get what ya deserve, I suppose.
Anyway....we had a great time. Toting that barge and lifting that bale. Got about 1/3 of the work done that is necessary. There's always next time or not, but what matters is that we got the grands out into the backyard, the dogs had a good romp, some of the bushes got trimmed and we got rid of a nasty community of black widow spiders.
Here are some of the pictures we took. I haven't taken any of the "finds". They are still on the table outside and frankly Scarlett, I'm not in the mood to go through another spasm in the old lower back so we'll have to share those pics at a later time.
