Faster, Better, Stronger, Smarter

Well, the computer is back home and 5 times as roomy.  NICE!

I spent the whole day working and didn't take a single photo!  It has been raining and puddles showed up in the driveway where we spread the new gravel, so more raking and shoveling had to happen.  Part of the problem was that a 20 foot strip of the original driveway was not canted properly along the edge, so.......Mr. Adams and I got out the pick ax and brought the level down about 6 inches.  It was raining about the whole time!   I was soaked by the time we were done and headed straight for the bathtub.  Now I am out and I am checking out the new computer hard drive.  It does seem faster and I know there is more room on it.

I had only one customer today, but he left happy so I am happy.

And to make sure you have photos to entertain you....
