Well I think we are done setting rocks , although we still have about a dozen left so I don't know where they might be going . Just need to finish a little more backfilling and some drainage. This is just above the bottom one at the end of their driveway , she is going to plant a flower garden in between the two .
That makes my back hurt. Half loaded - half to go. Good luck with the project. Looking forward to pictures of the completed project.
Picked up a bunch of block last spring at the local big box. As I pulled up to the pile with my truck and trailer for my first trip, two young yard guys took off on a dead run for the lumber shed. A third came and helped me load. Thanked him when we finished and asked how many days he had been working there. I got a funny look. "Two", he replied. Told him I thought so. He asked why, and I just smiled and said it was really nice to have help loading. "We're supposed to help the customer load." Told him I knew that, but the guys with a few more days of employment here seem to get real busy on something else when there are cement blocks or bundles of shingles to be loaded. He laughed and then said, "Guess I just learned that trick too. Unless I see it is you." Never saw him again.

After a little nap after turkey hunting today I got back to my daughters for a few hrs and got a good chunk of the pavers done and filled in some more stone . Just a little bit more on the pavers and this project will be done

Down at my daughters today for a cookout and did a little fishing , caught a bunch of these little guys . That's good news because all we put in were adult fish so they must have spawned last year . Added 5 bass yesterday anywhere from 6-10" going to let it sit for a while to see how things shake out .
