    Hrmmm... where are you, planting tomatoes?
    Georgia. In pots unfortunately, because deer eat everything I plant in the yard.

    Today is going to get up to 74 degrees. First day of spring.

    Tomorrow is supposed to be up to 85 degrees. First day of summer.

Some yelling at my husband about the work guys tossed in for drama.

    I'm convinced it's going to be a hit.
    So, no one thinks I have a hit show on my hands? HGTV won't be calling?

    Well, if you are using the contractors I've used, you'll have at least a season's worth of episodes waiting for the job to get done.

    I think you need to include a peanut gallery - perhaps OPK, DD, Mtn Devil, I and a few others can sit on the sidelines sipping beer/wine/liquor and add the occasional witty comment to the events.

Set with more finely crushed bluestone between the flagstones and gently water that in; lather, rinse, repeat until it's all even.

    And most importantly, make certain absolutely no water courses across it; your patio must be the local maxima or all is for nought. (Well, unless you pour a concrete base and set the flagstones above it in still more concrete. It's more durable but it's harder to repair. And uglier.)

    We built a deck...

    I'm in for the beer. Occasionally witty? Not so much.

    Waaaayyy too helpful. I mean really. -jk may only get a brief guest shot on my show, not a recurring role. "Do-it-right-yourself-the-first-time" guy cameo appearance.

    Interesting, I'm not sure bluestone is readily available here in Ess Ehhh(SA/San Antone).

    Husband-of-Weezie needs a brother-in-law or neighbor to tell him that he's doing it wrong. That always helps a project and gives a side plot line.

    ^^^ That's good OPK, I like the way you're "fleshing" this out. Kind of the Green Acres sidekick yapper type.

    Isn't it fun when we all try to work through basketball disappointment together? Yeah, I know...sad...

    I can provide the occasional witty comment and I mean very occasional. The beer, not so much. Like the current trend in college basketball, I'm one and done.

    I'm afraid that if I am on the show, it will likely have to be on a non-broadcast network. Or else a lot of bleepings. It's a bad habit that's getting more pronounced as I get older, not less so.

    I was glad to see Designated Survivor back on the air. Also Criminal Minds IRT.

    Looking forward to the Amazing Race - mainly like to see where they get to go.

    My TV is rarely on any more for anything other than sporting events.

    Not sure to which I have a greater aversion -- pres-season threads speculating about minute distributions, or post-season threads speculating about who will leave early and who will return.
