More of the money pit

By the time I got home on Thurs they had finished the first section & were working on the next one

The patio wasn't a good place to relax

After the trench is dug & leveled it gets a layer of sand

Then these "baffles" are laid down
The drain pipe goes on top of them
It's then covered with fabric & then another layer of sand

Look how far this guy could throw a shovel full of sand



  1. Holy messiness. Is this just in your garden, it's not the for the whole freaking neighbourhood just your house?

    1. Just's a 4 bedroom house so there has to be so many feet of pipe per bedroom. This system disperses the water a different way so it doesn't need as much pipe. Otherwise we would have been cutting down trees & digging up my garden!

  2. Good grief. I'm really sorry but it will be beautiful again. Just don't let anyone use the loo when they come over and that way it take longer to wear out!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
