    Real fine work. Looks like the beer got to you or the level a little bit. Where is that castle located? I am putting you in for the Camp of the month in the Homes and Gardens........They should be calling you soon. I need to buy me a cabin and a couple of acres in NC or Georgia mountains... anyone got something like that for sale?

    No, that slope allows the rain to run off. He did it just right. Damn fine job. Sheee-it, any hillbilly knows that!

    Hey, I think you needed the top before the bottom, porch floor! But after a few beers, I guess it would be easier to build a floor while you are setting on the ground!

    You missed fun on the farm, it was a good ride. Mitch's new paint job, from red to orange, made him into a real pro!!! He now goes where no man has gone before.

    Looks nice, I like the landscaping in front. Hopefully no blown skid loader tires this time.
