Retaining wall

Glenn had never laid a brick before, but the new retaining wall is installed and looks beautiful!  What a blessing he is; if he doesn’t know how to do it today, he will know how tomorrow.  The asphalt still needs sealing, but we have the added blessing of a little rain today.  Extremely hot weather seems not to have deterred folks coming to Jefferson.  My business has never been better, and now the house looks great, too!  Lovely folks here for the last two days from West Monroe, celebrating young lady’s 14th birthday.  I remember 14!  Last week folks from Grand Prairie were here for six nights celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary; last week, a couple returned to celebrate their 10th anniversary.  We celebrate life!
