Fishing Trip

We like to go fishing at a little park not far from our house.
It called Dunton Park

fish3We get all kind of visitors at the park.
This is a Blue Heron (?)

We like to got a couple of times a week not that the fishing is that good but its nice to get out of the house.
The last time we went Sue was the fisherman that day.

If you look real close that thing at the end of the line is not the bait but the killer fish
Now the really funny thing is that she went after that fish.
Took a good 30 mins and countless worms
The sad thing is that Sue out fished me that day!
You can see some of the other pics HERE

The New Bath

Sue has been after me for a LONG time to get some pics of the new BathRoom up for you to see.
I guess it was time
I mean I did finish this last Christmas (2003).










I got to say that this room is my favorite room in the house!

The Fence

The fence is done.
I have got half of it stained.
It not for the rain today I would get the other half done

You can see all of the pics of the fence and the pond areaHERE

Zoysia Grass

Last summer (2003) we ordered some Zoysia Grass Seed off of E-bay.
A few weeks ago I started some of the seen in a tray.
Today I moved the “plugs” in the ground.
I am curious about how long it will take to spread.
I may have to put some real grass down till the Zoysia takes over.
I will give it a couple of week and see what happands.
There are a couple more picturesHERE

Here is a web site that sells Zoysia


Last year ( 2003 ) we messed around with Hypertufa
It all started with me wanting to make “Rocks” for the pond area.
After a lot of searching the net I came across Hypertufa
Hypertufa is very east to make and use.
Equal parts of:
Portland cement
Sphagnum peat moss
Mason’s sand

Sue made some very cool little Grots
You can see some of last year pics HERE

This little guy was left out all winter and came through with no problem.

There is a ton of info on Google Search

My Family

I wanted to show the world the people in my life that make it special !
_______________ My family ______________________
This is my brother Jerry and his family.

These two are my “babies”.
Christopher and Tanya.
Wow ! I’m not quite as young as I used to be !

This is my Russ.
The first person I see each morning
and the last person I see each night.

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.

see of the pics here

Next Project

Well I have been putting up a new fence
click on picture for a bigger picture

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
