Here is my latest Newsletter, so if you like this kind of thing go sign up for it (I don’t send them out very often, but when I do I try to make it fun and entertaining )
Also, I’ve been working on a landscaping project in my backyard, two terraced patios with a fire pit, so I thought I’d post some pics .

Close-up of the fire pit – I can see a lot of smores being eaten here in the next few weeks.
I also made a guard rail salvaged from old galvanized pipe from a trampoline, some 3/8″ cable and solar lights (2 bucks each at walmart) – total cost about $50 with the concrete:
Solar-capped guard rail.
So, as you can see I’ve been using a lot of bricks, here’s 1000 bricks with Muggy hamming it up for the camera:

Bricks unloaded. Hard fucking work.
We also got two new German Shepherds, sisters from the same litter, they are 1 year old. We originally called the first one “Lucky”, but Muggy called her “Lucky Kiki” so we ended up naming her Kiki, and naming her sister Koko. We got the first one in early June, and a month later we got her sister so she would have a playmate, and they absolutely love running around the woods together. Here are the hounds:
Smithers, release the Hounds.
Only thing is, they’ve been running over to the neighbors property, so we bought a fenceless system that shocks them if they go off our property. Unfortunately, now I have to bury 1000 ft. of wire. After doing about 150ft by hand, I created the Gouger 5000, a labor saving device that works pretty well actually:
Call now to order The Gouger 5000. Hurry, supplies are limited! (Bobcat not included)
Closet of Security +5. More traps per square inch than the Tomb of Horrors.
We’re on a mission from God.
