This weekend felt quite abbreviated. Saturday I had to work with the boss and a room full of other Japanese folks to vet a presentation they had to give in Brazil this morning. See, being a grammar nazi can be beneficial in one's professional life.
Anyway, I came home and D was excited to show me what he had accomplished for the last two days in the yard. The first thing is the side bed. This is a before photo. It has since been cleared of much debris and many bricks have been dug up. It no longer looks quite so ill-kept. But notice the ancient laundry line pole in the bed (left side of bed).

This is what it looks like now. Like all the random bricks in the back there? We dug those up. Neat, huh?
|Where'd it go?|
|Down the rabbit hole?|
|There it is|
This thing has plagued D's mind for weeks. He dug and dug while I pulled dead vines and roots out of the side bed, and still it didn't come out. He broke through a layer of concrete triumphantly, only to discover that there was another layer of concrete beneath it. See the different levels of discoloration? Not a trendy ombre finish. It's the level of weathering from the exposed end to the middle (buried in dirt) to the shiny end that was embedded in concrete, to the second concrete layer (still present).
D was very proud.
He had also pulled out the rickety gate to the back yard, and the gate-poles.
|This was our gate.|
