Lights and #57 river rock

Our friends Bill and Sarah Gann helped Pat and I string lights up in the back yard. I hesitate to call them christmas lights because it's June for crying out loud. I know, I know , we have all seen those shows on HGTV about people who start hanging their christmas lights in June, but I'm not one of them. I think I got a brother-in-law who starts in June , but that's getting off the point of this blog. Katie wanted lights, so Katie got lights. Sarah Groble, if you ever want lights, they'll be in the garage.
I can't thank Bill and Sarah Gann enough for helping. Pat and I still have a bazillion things to do before this Saturday. I can't remember what they all are, but I'm sure Pat will remind me.
Jimmy came over to help us with the 5 tons of #57 river rock that was blocking the driveway. We needed it to freshen up our paths in the back yard. The pile didn't look too big sitting on the driveway. I'll tell you, if you ever try this at home, do not start with the math. Don't try to claculate how many wheel barrow loads it'll take to get the job done. Jimmy said it best when he told me that it didn't hurt after the 10th load. Many thanks to Jimmy. We could not have done it without you.

"claculate"? Good thing you are an educator :-) And I start on the Christmas lights in August, just before band camp.
