Pond Garden

I had to move the lilacs back about 4 feet. That was an all day thing.
It took more then an hour per plant and there were more lilacs that I first thought.
Then I had to take the rock wall back another 5 or 6 feet.

I was left with a pile of dirt that went into getting the ground level.

Here you can see the 2 by 4’s that I used to get everythng level.
That are 8 feet apart just to give you some idea of the size.
Then came the rocks and blocks. That was the easy part.

Next Project

Well I have been putting up a new fence

When I would go and get the mail Sadie would just jump the 2 back fences and come around the side to meet me!
After to many times of the dogs getting out we had to do something.
I got the gate up today so that means I am about half way done.


Last X-mas I remodeled the bathroom for Sue
It was in bad shape !

It took a lot more work than I thought it would 😉
I pretty much gutted the room. ripped out the walls, celing, shower, cabinets just about everyting that I could get rid of I did!

It just really started out as a simple
Honey I am going to put a new shower in this weekend
To a
Honey your weekend is LONG gone! 🙂
No Sue was very good about the whole thing even tho it took about 10 days and 200 trips to the hardware store.
Putting in the shower was kind of hard, the wall are not square in any direction you measure.
So I had a lot of fixing to do

Our Big Dog


This is our big dog Sadie
She thinks she is a lap dog, but at 93 pounds, she is just too big to be a lap dog.
She is a tail wagger.


When we go shopping we get soup bones for her.
This one was too big for her and she got it stuck on her lower jaw.
This happened at 3:30 AM, what she was doing knawing on a bone at time of the moring – who knows.
Well that is the time Sue gets up for work. On that morning it was the same time the VET and I got up.
We had to take her to the Vet.
He put to sleep and cut the bone off.
The dog took it better then Sue did 🙂

You can see all of the pics of the dogs HERE

From Sue:
How can men be so calm? Russ tells me to relax and the vet tells me to bring Sadie in when his office opens ! I have to go work knowing my baby has a bone stuck on her jaw !
From Russ:
All I want to do was get out the jig saw and cut the bone off

My Ebay Experiences

I had my 4 year anniversary with Ebay this month ! I love buying and selling on Ebay. I have to say that in the past four years I have only had a couple poopy experiences. Not bad considering I’m an Ebay junkie. I have learned that people will buy just about anything and some will Pay almost anything for what they want.
If you’d like to take a peek at what I’m selling just give this a click ! Ebay

Our Pond

Sue has always wanted a POND so last summer I at ( least ) started one.
We found a small pond kit at the local hardware store it was on sale of course.
While I was pondering how to lay it out Sue found a better pond on e-bay.
So I was back to some more pondering.
After a lot of head banging I got some holes dug.
I plan on getting it finished this summer!


Welcome to our new site.
