We discovered a large crack in our front steps the other day that needed to be filled before winter so water didn't get in there, freeze and bust the steps completely off our porch all together.
However - in order to fix it, I first needed to widen the crack so I had a way to clean it out and pour new concrete in and seal it up. So, of course I did what any manly man would do in this situation...
The very first thing that came to mind when I considered tackling this task was a favorite catch phrase of mine from this hysterical video of Conan O'Brien when he hosted the Emmys last year...
Fortunately nothing went horribly wrong and I now have a nice clean 6-inch gap between my step and porch all ready and waiting for the new concrete I'm going to buy tonight. Hey, what could possibly go wrong?
And while I was outside yesterday working on said porch, I kept hearing this horrendous screeching sound that sounded exactly like the pterodactyls from the intro sequence to Jonny Quest (remember that?)
I don't know, do you think it's just a coincidence that a Blue Jay kind of looks and sounds like a modern-day mini cousin of this prehistoric predator?
We still haven't moved the fish. Mostly because in order to do so we're going to have to completely empty the pond of all plants, rocks and other hiding spots. Because ever since they started breeding we really have no idea how many little fishies live in there, and we would hate to leave one behind :-(
Make sure to stop back here on Thursday afternoon to read a very special post featuring YOU!
See you then!
