The purpose is to make a parking area for the golf cart and also a nice place for their grill. This area is usually pretty wet and never gets direct sunlight to dry out, so pea gravel will be put down on Thursday and it will be all done. It already looks nicer so I know with the gravel it will be good. These guys are always busy. Next Saturday they're planning on putting a sprinkler system in for Nita and Larry.
I was in charge of moving the golf cart into the spot to see if it fit the way the guys planned. Sophie was helping me. :-)
This praying mantis sat on Dennis' finger for the longest time today.
Here are some of the ladies a few minutes ago, sitting in their chairs in the middle of the road. They do this every year to celebrate the end of summer crowds. Most people have already left today to get the kids ready for school tomorrow. Only us "old" people are left up here. Dare I admit it's nice that it's quiet? I love having all of the kids around though. The one thing I don't miss when the crowds are gone are the few people who get drunk and noisy at night. They make it miserable for everyone else.
Piper found a way to take her doll on the swing with her. Quite ingenious.
Our anniverary was September 1 and we got our wedding pictures out to look at for the first time in several years. Just look how handsome this guy is. The styles were a bit different 38 years ago weren't they? I was also a "BIT" skinnier back then. Dennis looks the same now as he did then, minus the mustache and sideburns!
We're planning to stay at the lake until Wednesday, although lots of rain is predicted for tomorrow so I may go back early. We'll be back Friday morning. I do enjoy it here in the fall. The trees changing colors, watching the Candian geese fly south. It's all fun. We've had to turn our furnace on the past few evenings already. Last week the A/C. This week the furnace. Welcome to fall!
I hope you all have a wonderful week and I'll be back soon.
