You may remember that last year . . . about now . . . Tom was busy putting in a little patio in a previously unused and unloved corner of our backyard.
It turned out really nicely.
(We call it "Tom's Garden.")
But. It isn't quite finished.
Because that patio. . . was built into a hill. It needs a retaining wall.
So Tom is back to digging.
There's a lot of pounding involved on that first layer of bricks.
(It's going to look fantastic!)
Tom gets a lot of help from the dogs . . .
And the occasional beer from me.
It helps keep everything . . . on the level!
