Thank Goodness for Grandpas

Nate had the best of intentions all summer long to reinforce our fence since it was looking a little shaky, but with lots of hot days and busy schedules it just kept being put off. Just when it was getting cool enough to spend a Saturday outside very unexpected and definitely unwelcome wind storm stopped by. And our fence didn't stand a chance.
So, for the past two Saturdays Nate and his Grandpa have had a pretty big project on their hands. It's involved concrete, a mighty two-man hole digger, wood (of course!), and screws -- lots and lots of screws. In the past week Nate has become very good friends with Home Depot.
But, today these hardworking guys finished it up. Oh, what a blessing it is to have such a skilled, smart, know-how grandpa! He's a project kind of guy, and the end result is always oozing with precision and serious quality work. Nate truly chose the best teacher possible to learn a few things about fence building.
So thanks Grandpa. You helped us build something that the ferocious wind can't even compete with. This fence isn't going anywhere for a very, very long time. And that sounds perfectly wonderful to me.
