Thanks, PF He took apart our old brick patio and is re-using those bricks in the new one. I need to collect the pix I've taken of the project and post them.

Very nice work GG. How is he at building decks? I need to get someone to build us a basic one off of our sunroom. With the hot, humid summer we've been having he'd feel right at home! If you can tag along, the two of us could probably get into trouble while the guys work.

He helped his dad build his deck. It came out pretty nice. Your comment made me smile, too.

Why not? They are just down the coast a bit from us. A two day trip. Leave on a Thursday morn and get here about Friday late afternoon.

I was thinking the same thing, but would the trip really take that long? Aren't they in neighbouring states, and not big states?

According to Google, it would take about 10 hours to drive from the southeastern corner of Virginia to Boston (I don't know which town CG lives in, so I used that as a placeholder). There are several states in between, including Pennsylvania, which is pretty big. Maybe we could just meet in the middle, in NYC

I thought CG lived in MA. Isn't that what it says under her name? Am I just confused?

Wait is MA Maine or Maryland?
