It is looking good Keith, what is that your trim is laying on there?

Started on getting the handrail around the divorce hole glued up late this afternoon. Just added the third row of wood. At a maximum of three rows per day I guess it will take four or five days to complete.

To be followed by the planing, shaping, sanding and finishing.

Some time last year the missus said that she was walking on the lower deck outside the cabin and it started to fall down. Say what? So I took a look at it, and sure enough, the high priced post that I had put under the outside corner was - shall we say - somewhat less than perfect.

Yesterday I decided it was high time that the fix was done, so I found a chunk of 6 x 6 fir, cut it to length and treated the ends. jacked up the deck corner, took out the old and added the new. Here's the repair done...

A couple of pages back I made mention of the newt in the pond again this year. Yesterday when I was at the pond I counted no less than 10 of them! There may be more for all I know, but it's good to see them back again.

I know you can't see many of them in this pic, but there are several clustered under the leaves on the water plant.

Did the Mr. no shoulders move out of the way so you could cut the grass? I can see the little lizards under the plant leaf, the snakes don't try to get the little dickens do they?

Oh yes, he moved. I don't think he would much care to be turned into chopped liver by the mower. I don't think they go after the newts Jim, but they sure do go after the tadpoles.
