he taught me well, that he did! the ramp at the shed where the riding mower is kept had seen its better days, it was probably 7 or 8 years old. gary used some old boards he found laying around, none treated, so they were all rotten.

here's what i started with...2 x 8 treated boards for support...





i used a piece of 3/4" treated plywood...



TA DAAA!!!



and now, for the coup de gras...while digging for the center support board, in a place that has not been dug in before, all the while wondering if i was doing a job that would be suitable to gary, i found THIS about 8" down in the ground...



A PENNY FROM HEAVEN!!!!!

thanks everyone! you know, today...it's exactly 4 months since gary's death so yes, the penny has very special meaning to me.

You know he was making sure you did everything the correct way. I think that penny was just so that you would know he's watching over you.

Take care.

Way to go Charlene
. You did a great job, I agree The penny was Gary's way of letting you know he is watching over you. And just maybe he wanted to say, 'good job Honey you did that just like I would have'.

4:14 a.m. and whoa! i think i over did it this weekend...swinging a hammer and dragging heavy lumber around and moving the round bale feeder...my body is objecting quite strenuously! :DOH!

gary's brother came up yesterday to look at my work. he and gary worked construction together for many years. george gave me a B+. i told him thanks but gary already gave me an A+!!!


i'm thinking i should go back to bed but it'll take me 30 minutes to walk that far so i guess i'll just stay up. LOL
