suddenly our gabion wall seems small compared to Heidi's project!

we suggested she fill the gap with Stuff. it'll be awful drafty if she doesn't!

and that's that!

almost 2 weeks late and not quite the full picture, but here's the gabion wall in almost it's entirety! we officially finished a week ago Sunday; or as we like to say in the South "last Wednesday week". that's letter conservation for you! congrats to nacho!

(9:15 AM) Denise: i guess i should try plugging the wipes into my computer
(9:16 AM) Brian: i bet they sound clean

my god i've been so busy with absolutely nothing lately that i haven't posted anything. and a co-worker is having and issue with this. let's see...
* we've been working furiously on the gabion wall for the last 3+ weeks and finally put the last one in place yesterday in the rain. i have more photos but just haven't got around to posting them. once again i'm reaffirmed what a great team nacho and i are.
* nacho started hockey so i'm shuttling the little one to games now. luckily it's just B League this year so my back is happy about that. sorry ski-feet!
* we got the beach back end of last week. this would be he passing our our annual Fall flood. luckily it only made it up to the sea wall and no threat to the gabion work
* monsters are still spoiled. some things never change. although i think i've found a biking partner in Butterz!
* works SUCKS! i hate my job more and more each day and am beginning to embrace PMS - Potential Murder Suspect. i promise not to post pics of that!
* oh, yeah, and then there's that phone that's been eating up some of my time. i finally joined the 18th century. i miss my abacus!

go big or go home. i finally got off the Razor - well kinda. picked up my Droid today and boy is this amazing! still keeping the Razor and USCellular for the next couple of weeks until i get the kinks worked on this. but i must say the Turn By Turn Navigation is awesome. the Twitter app is fine consider what Twitter is to begin with. i had some issues with Contacts and the Screen Timeout but muddled my way around and got those fixed - the VW store appreciated me calling back to tell them how to fix those! if i can just learn to type on a keyboard i'll be home free. amazing enough, i'm doing better on the touch screen than the slider keyboard. go figure!

today's fortune cookie

-- Don't worry about the stock market. Invest in family.

they have obviously never heard of my family. they're all morally bankrupt!
