One that got away
MUD Working on Deck
Somehow my fifth grade math has just allowed me to make another mistake. I measured the deck on the south side and computed 24, 12 foot deck boards would cover it. I didn't even allow for a 1/8th inch gap and still seems like I am a couple of boards shy of having enough. I'm not finished yet so I'll reserve judgement as the pile dwindles. Now that the truck is running good a trip to Lowe's might be just the ticket for some time off. Who knows until the lumber pile is exhausted.
Did I mention that I love this time of year? The garden is starting to really produce and the produce at the store is really especially tasty. Barb found a cantaloupe yesterday that is bigger than most of the water melons. What's up with the water melons? All we have here are about the size that last one small meal. If there were three Petty's, it would have to have a twin to feed that many. Back to the plethora of produce. I hate it in the winter when the tomatoes taste like they are made out of cardboard. This time of year they are sweet and almost don't need salt to really hit the plate with a bright taste. To make it even better, I think we hit a new all time low temperature last night. It was in the mid 70's yesterday and was great weather.
Better go up and see if that melon is good enough to support all this fine talk. (It was)
