This is not exactly a bench, and its not exactly a weekend project, but this weekend I did manage to get a start on my home's new addition. What an addition it is too. I was hoping things would go smoothly, but when the gravel truck went out of sight into the mud on the very first trip, I knew things were going to get bad.
Then we hit a spring...under the exact center of my new addition. Not to the left, not to the right, not even forward or backwards, but right underneath the slab. It was not pretty.
Oh well, spend a lot of money and move on I guess...
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
