Wiki, Daddy went to the post office and brought something home for Momma called a "traking number".   It says that those dastardly golf tees will be at your house on Tuesday!   Be ready to hide them! :ph34r

Chris, I'm so sorry.  

Vanessa, my Mother was there for Hugo and I got sent to Kingstree in the aftermath of the storm to provide "local" help to Fema.  It was rough.  I remember seeing acres of tall pines standing like matchsticks, all their limbs and even their bark had been stripped away by the wind. There was a large sailboat in the middle of the road in downtown Charleston by the harbor. It was lying on its side with the keel sticking out and body of the boat across the multilane road.  No power and for us no power meant no water--we had a well.  But we weren't dealing with the temp expremes.

I am about at my limit of cheerfulness with the guys working on the raised bed.  :headwall  and :blink:  and :mum 
Thank goodness I've been working from home and could keep an eye on things.   The first problem arose on day one when I noticed that they were making the usable garden area of each bed 3' rather than the 4' I'd asked for.  I caught it early, told them what I wanted, and they fixed it. Problem number two came on day 2 when I saw that they were adding a 3rd tier of cement block to the raised bed.  Um, no.  The drawings I gave them were clearly for 2 tiers of block and then one layer of solid "topper" block.  Again, I saw the problem before they'd gone too far and it was fixed.  Problems 3 and 4 were the "joy" of today and I'm now tired, frustrated, annoyed, and absolutely "extroverted out" from dealing with people.  I noticed late this afternoon that they had not prepared to pave all the way around BOTH beds but only around one bed and between the two beds.  :blink:  No.  That is not what I'd talked with their estimator about AT ALL.  Paving all around both beds and between the beds.  Problem number 4 occured when I then saw that they'd used 2 different kinds of brick.  Not two different kinds of brick in a pretty pattern butt two different kinds of brick like completely unrelated brick on one end and down one side not matching what's down the middle.  Like I grabbed left over brick from the side of the road to use on my project. I've talked with the estimator again about fixing both issues.  I talked with the 2 guys doing the work.  They, of course, are just doing what they were told but d@m#!  I'm making more work for them, but this project is by far too expensive to end up with a crap job it looks like I hired Bubba down the street to do on the cheap.

Nate checking out their wheelbarrows.  The basic layout of the beds is now exactly what I drew and discussed and I'm content with that.  But they'd not planned/understood that the paving is going all around both beds and between the beds?  Why on Earth?!

No photo description available.

The mismatched brick. Really, guys?  I know part of what we're dealing with is language.  The estimator and both workers are Hispanic.  Sadly, I don't speak Spanish.  The estimator's English seemed good but clearly, we were not on the same page.

Uh, oh, my goodness. What da heck? Since when do the holes go UP?? Y'all know when LUCY gets mad, it's BAD. My friend Ginger grew up in the Canal Zone, if you want, I'll send La Guera up there to deal with those guys. They used to play the old "no habla" with her, and she'd give them an earful.:lol:

Wiki, sounds like you had a superb b-day! G got into the cat food and trash in your honor, he's a sneaky one when he wants!

I pooped by de lite ob de liddle dipper!

Relative to everyone else, it's not cold but I thought you'd' get a kick out of our morning.  It was too dark to walk lakeside so I took Merc across the street, kittycorner, to the vacant lot.  It's 50 degrees.  I'm in a shorty robe and flipflops.  The neighbor's sprinklers come on while we're across the street.  Now, we have to walk back through the sprinklers, with bare legs, in 50 degree weather.

:yay fur Miss Chris and AndiPants and their fambly

I intended everyone to get a chuckle over my adventure.  A cup of hot coffee and a bowl of hot oatmeal will soon put me right.
