The Path to Nowhere

April 22, 2014


Meet Ruben. He’s the guy helping us lay a flagstone path around our yard. As of today, this is the path’s status… though this picture was actually taken a week ago.

It would seem that the transporting and laying of 2 1/4 tons of flagstone, and the cutting of said flagstone (concrete saws are a little unwieldy)… has resulted in Ruben having a very sore back. Or it could have been the four tree stumps he muscled out of the ground (a podocarpus, a cherry, a fig and a no-name shrub), or the relocation of several huge boulders (and the repurposing of one into a bench… THAT is very cool). Whatever it was, the project’s been on hold for a week… I think it resumes tomorrow.  

If you’re in need of a very strong, hardworking crew, Ruben and his team are pretty great.
