Matt,

Can you email me those photos?

Ummmm.... Why?  What are you up to??  Hmmmm???


You can just right-click on the file name and select the save picture as option.

If that doesn't work, than, yeah... I can email them.

Just to show my wife.  Future improvements to our place.

Yeah I can go through all that trouble, but I was trying to be like management and push it off on someone else.

I'll grab them myself.

Thanks

Greg

Here are some more.  If I remember I'll grab some of the hi-res pics tonight.

  Nice work Matt.  I'm looking at a couple retainment/paver projects next spring.  I've done them before but not on my own house.  :-D

Cobbler's Children = Crumbs?  :)

You never heard that phrase?  Maybe it should be updated a bit since I can't say I know of a single person who uses the title "cobbler" as their profession.  Just means that what you do as a profession, your household often lacks.  Usually that's because most people would hate to do their job all day and then come home to have to do it off the clock too.

Nope, never heard that.  I know what a cobbler was is was.

Well, they broke a few of them.  He had a whole crate of those shovels just in case.  :)

Well, they're designed to break when a certain load is reached.  It's a safety issue.
