Extreme Backyard Makeover?


We loaded the family into the car yesterday morning and headed to Frick's World North (my parents spread.) The project of the day was to build Pop Pop and Grammy an arbor for the backyard. I vaguely remember commenting "No big deal we'll be done by 2:00 pm". At 6:30 we were sweeping up the last of the sawdust. A Project Manager position apparently is not in my future.
During construction I picked up Pop Pop's hammer and commented "You've had this hammer for over 30 years" Pop Pop looked up and replied "Yes son, I've had that hammer a long time, it was made when people still cared about quality and took pride in what they produced. Matter of fact that's my favorite tool". Know what I snapped the head off it 15 minutes later, I guess my sister gets to move up a rung on the "Who's the favorite child ladder".
Upon completion I quickly named the arbor "Shogun". "Shogun" is huge 8 feet tall, 6 1/2 feet wide and almost 5 feet deep. All it needs is someone standing in the middle of it wearing a Kimono and sporting a sword.
We were both a little sore and slower than normal this morning, I guess we aren't as young as we were last year when we built "Shogun JR" at Frick's World South.
