Don't Fence Me In

My husband took down part of our fence so he could drive the truck into the backyard and unload some sand for the pool.

But did he put the fence back up when he was done?

Uh...I don't think so.

Yeah, that's safe.

So after a week (I would have left it longer, but the neighbors got back from vacay and although their dog came traipsing through repeatedly, I didn't think the kids should.) I put it back up my damn self.


Note: Since blogger hates me and Sleeping Mommy had to totally help me with the images, it has been a three weeks since this incident took place. Guess what?

Our new mower doesn't fit through the back gate. Yeppers, the fence panel is down again. At least he put it over by the house and has the nails pointed down this time. But, I had to go take the ladder out of the pool so the neighborhood kids wouldn't go for a swim without us. Gotta luv'em.

I feel for you.

Oh how I feel for you.

By the way, your lawn is gorgeous.

I love our place. It is out in the country, but not too far. We have six acres and mow about five of them. It takes for freaking ever. The new mower has cut the time down quite a bit, but we still have to mow about every other week. I had just finished mowing the front yard when I took the bottom photo. You can see more of our yard here.

LOVE your yard! And I hear you about the mowing; we had a house out in the country and we had to have a ride-on mower or it wouldn't get done.

At least he's putting the nails down instead of up...

What a funny blog! I can't say much more than that 'cause I may or may not be guilty of some of these sins.
