Arlington Chronicles: The Gate Is Up and the Fence Is Done!

Big gate and fence

It’s done, and everything works! The dogs can now run free in our backyard! And I can clean up the work bench and put away the tools, because it’s done! And if I do say so myself, I think it looks pretty frickin’ good!

None too soon, either. The temperatures are dropping (I could see my breath as I was staining wood*), and the first real snow of the season is predicted for tomorrow! Nothing like cutting it close!


*Not the recommended conditions for staining wood.

    It looks glorious. Now lock yourself in the back yard and finish the book.

      Too cold out there! The software won’t work. Maybe I’ll lock myself inside, though.

    Looks so pro! But as to the dogs running free in the backyard — I dunno, Jeff. I’m pretty sure that when I passed by last time, I saw Jack in the yard wearing Nikes on all four feet — and he was carrying some sort of very long pole in in his mouth. Can’t imagine what he thought he was doing, but he sure was grinning ….

      A stick. He loves sticks! I’m sure that’s all it was.
