It's All Dad's Fault!

It's All Dad's Fault!
So Mom and Dad finally made it up to the lake last weekend (Aug 3rd - 6th 2007). It's been a couple of years since they have come up. Saturday Dad talked us into going to the Casino up there. It's a strange place. A couple of thousand slot machines, and a dozen or so tables. The slots for the most part are multi-denominational, you get to chose penny, 2 cent, nickel or quarter. I stuck to the 2 cent varieties, and made out okay. I came out a few bucks ahead. Everyone else lost. I guess that's why casinos make money.

Sunday Morning I get up, and of course Dad has been awake for hours already (he fell asleep on the couch at 7 Saturday night.) He tells me that our teak table and chairs out on the deck look dry, and that I should oil them. So I go to the garage to get the teak oil. Well while I am out there I grab the extension ladder so I can fix the piece of gutter that fell off. i get that done in a few minutes, and head back to the garage to get the teak oil (I didn't grab it the first time out.) this time I see the hedge trimmers, and loppers. I grab them because the ash tree is too close to the house, and the reason the gutter broke int he first place. So I trim the tree a little.

Well since I have the trimmers out, I think about taking down the bushes on the lake side of the house. We have been talking about taking them all out to make room for an outdoor patio bar, and a spot for the Bar-B-Que grill. so I go back tot eh garage and get the chainsaw. So after two weekends of work, and a lot of digging, we almost have the deck built in the new bar area. The pictures tell the rest of the story.
Oh, and I still have not gotten around to oiling that teak table and chairs.

All because Dad had to bug me about oiling the teak.

I'll post an update once we get some more work done. And maybe we'll even oil the table.

Oh and of course there are more pictures in the Gallery.
