Making Lemon-aid…

When you’ve got lemons…

you either squirt someone in the eye, or make lemon-aid. We opted for lemon-aid…

It has been a great couple of weeks. Having my son Randy here was amazing. We were trying to figure out what we should create this time. I still had (and have) a bunch of old fence boards from when the fence was replaced. Now most people would have had it hauled to the dump, given it to anyone with a fire pit or let the fence company take it away. (at a cost of course) Well we decided to come up with creative ways to use them. I’ll let the pictures tell the story from here…

None of this without a good partner!

A few years ago Randy came down for a visit as well. We had a blast and I’ve written about it on this blog as well. This year was a little shorter visit, but not any less enjoyable and rewarding. He’s quite the young man with a remarkable understanding of life.

My Son.
The best partner a man can have!
