in all that effort to get ready for the flood last Friday, i completely forgot to mention one of the coolest parts.    out of nowhere come these 5 kids running through our little neighborhood.  they stop at our house & ask if we need any help.  there was no car or truck that brought them, they just came running through our hood.  turns out, they were kids from the local Rugby team!
and what a relief it was to see them.  not only did they get all my heavy planters up on the deck and the super important chiminea, but there is no way we could have gotten the 3 16ft sections of our dock up on that deck without them.
and just like a super hero that shows up out of nowhere & performs feats of strength, they were gone in a flash! but they will be back because we plan to Rent-A-Rugby so they can help us take it all back down!  thanks tons guys!

Last year a local soccer team advertized labor for a donation on Craigslist. We took those high school students up on some pretty grueling yard work, and I was astounded at their work ethic and great attitudes. They even came back the next morning at 6:00 a.m. to finish the job. Restored my faith in youth, and reminds us there are great people doing great things for others.
