Yard Update

Hopefully the job will be completed next week and I can post some pics. Everything is really starting to take shape. The 6-foot wall that separates the lower patio from the upper patio is pretty intimidating, but it still looks nice. There are a lot of different elevations when you look out, so it's not just some massive wall. Part of the wall is also a planter, so there will be vegetation on top as well. There are now also stairs and a gate leading out of the back onto the mesa. I'm looking forward to AlbuFURque to debut the new and improved party spot.

Kitty and I decided that a new patio deserved new patio furniture. Our local store was having a big Memorial Day sale, so we decided to check it out. Dang! Some patio furniture is just downright ludicrous! $800 for a patio chair?!? Buy 4 chairs and a table and you're talking close to $5K! F*ck that sh*t! I'll admit that I did spend a fair amount for what we finally bought, but I think it was in that sweet spot of being better than plastic chairs but not completely over the top. I'll move the current table and chairs up to the new upper patio. That set has served me well for the past 16 years. I had purchased it at the same furniture store. Back then I thought that spending $150 for the set was really pushing it. *lol* Oh, the good old days.
