Today, the ratty gray fence that has enclosed the back yard of Stately Rice Manor since we moved here in 2000 (and, given its obvious superannuation, for quite a while previous to our arrival) is – finally! – coming down.
Three fellas with hammers, power tools & a Bobcat are even now knocking it down & piling it on their trailer.
Work on the new fence – a very pretty (and mind-bogglingly expensive) cedar job – will begin presently.
(Sam is fascinated by all the activity. He’s been glued to the back windows, taking pictures, etc., etc.)
