What an interesting topic from Linda G Hill with SoCS with us all in shutdown mode. I want people to be safe, I want people to have common sense but since I can’t take pictures of that so we will go with a more visual/tangible want.
I want my yard fenced in. The first guy backed out so I resorted to a guy who had done work for me in the past…a bad idea, out of his realm of expertise.
First off I wanted the post 4′ on center…close but no gold ring. Plus they did not fill in the dirt once the concrete was dry, I had to do that. I didn’t need to be moving all that dirt but I got it done. Grateful they didn’t crush my baby rose or azalea bushes.
Then I called to have the lumber, the lattice and hardware delivered because I did not want to have to haul them in my car(SUV). Instead of the 21 boards I ordered, that were on the packing slip, they delivered 12. Guess who had to go get the rest, after much noise, I promise.
Needed everything here by Friday since Saturday was the day they were coming to put up the lattice…Its 11:28 and they have still not arrived. Going to rain this afternoon.
I really want this project complete for lots of reason, the biggest being my safety in not being tripped by a dog on a wire tie out.
But we will see if anyone shows. I can do it myself but it won’t be easy. I am not 30 anymore where I did this kind of stuff all the time. For now we just look at a half finished project and WANT for the best.
Come join in with the prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday of “want.” Make the word “want” the first, second, or third word of your post. Have fun!
And as always, remember to be kind…even when its hard…
