Cautious at the beginning...
And then, the big guns. Just kidding, this was the work of the utility company after the guys hit an unmarked line (and incidentally excellent entertainment for a two-year old!)
Like father, like son. This photo was taken at about 8 pm after many days of work. (P.S. that couch is no longer in our lives and I can't describe that bliss well enough!)
Lest you think they were out there alone, the dogs were on hand to supervise,
and, of course, Wyatt helped with the wheel barrow.
Let me tell you, it's a little slice of heaven on our side of that five feet of pressure treated pine. I can open the back door and let the critters, er, Wyatt and Millie out to play and not worry about them. It's a serious life improvement!
Oh, and a little story for you: remember the cat walker? Well, his mom doesn't approve of our fence and told Jeff as much in a fairly rude, surprise verbal attack. He assured her it wouldn't affect the cat walking path. I'm not sure that made her any happier, but it sure made us laugh! Indeed, it hasn't changed their habit but now we only see walker's hair as he ambles by.
