Halfway there. Now where was I going again?

The wooden retaining wall around the playscape is officially half finished. All that is left is one back side and a funky 45 degree corner that runs to the rock retaining wall. It looks pretty good so far, but I still have several days of work to do.

This afternoon The Talker helped me out for a few minutes. He wanted to saw, so we busted out the reciprocating saw and cut the scrap ends off of a couple of four by fours. Afterwards he told me he really likes the noise the saw makes. After one cut he was gone, off to swing some more. Big fun!

Hopefully I will get finished this weekend. Everything looks pretty well done, but lots of loose ends to tie up. But this is that point that I usually get distracted by some other project. Around here that is normal. I come from several generations of Starters. There is hardly a finisher in the whole family line.

I come from a long line of finishers-- but alas and alack, I'm more of the starter type. I think I must of gotten the recessive genes.

So know that I'm right there with you in your quest to complete something. Really, finishing things is way overrated.

AB, Finishing stuff is for people with too much time on their

You know KC, I was going to check everyone in the family to see who really is a finisher...

I considered about 6 relatives, before I got bored and moved on to another task.
