I sent Chris a picture of the current state of our landscaping project. His comment was, “You put a podium in your front yard?” I had to look at the picture again and realized the new planter does look like a podium! He said we should encourage people to use it as a public soapbox. Haha. Then he started riffing on the idea, saying it was just like the presser Rudy Giuliani held at the landscaping business. He said I should dress up as Rudy and hold a press conference with my audience sitting on the rocks arrayed in front of the “podium.”

We had a good laugh at that.

I went this far:

See? It does look like podium.
