Going to extremes

My sister-in-law forwarded this article here from the NY Times. Is she trying to tell me something? I do not think I am being this extreme. Nor will I go this far!

Is this necessary?

Yesterday I picked up my daughter from Nursery school and found another surprise in her cubby. It was a craft project they did stringing Lifesavers and Fruit Loops on a piece of yarn. I understand that they wanted to work with co-ordination and the concept but do not understand why they used the candy! This candy can be a choking hazard for a young child and again I had to explain to my daughter why she could not have it. Another introduction of a candy item at her school in which she s not able to have. I am sure there are other items that could have been used. Another addition to a delicate subject that will be talked about in the next meeting. Can't wait to see what the Halloween party will bring!

Steps almost done



Not much left to do. Just pretty up the side with the lattice and move that post back in so it is not suspended by the edge of the deck. Looking good! Now if I could only finish my patio section and landing stones.....

Off to the World Series


This could be number 27 for the Yankees! It has been a great year for the Yankees and looking forward to an exciting World Series. Is this called the "Jersey Turnpike" series?

One thing leads to another





I thought I was only going to need a few boards replaced on my back steps. Once my friend started to rip them out, one thing lead to another and all of it has to be built back up. 75 years on most of the wood with some of it being rebuilt a little shabby, it is due. The best picture is the last of the post that has crept over to the edge, never even noticed it! It is suppose to be in line with the beam below, quite the difference. There was also a beam under the deck that was not sitting on anything, floating in air. Scary what you can uncover.
