Thanks Daisy

It's been an interesting project for sure. I've surprised myself with this one.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

I have a hard time just getting around to hooking up my spray trailer and killing weeds, my major project days are long past I guess.
I am going to go out after the rain stops and put a couple short pieces, 10", of PVC in the ground to set the legs of my target frame in for when I shoot. My straw bales worked great but don't hold up against the weather very well, especially when youngest G-son put a .357 round edgewise through the wood I had keeping the rain off the straw. He's a good boy, needs to work on his shootin' though LOL

Just came in from painting the baseboard of our home.. guess this is home improvement day on here.. seriously good looking job of stucco pard.. I'd say you have a knack for working with it.. Whats the grout thing.. on your granite slabs im guessing.. Those slabs or first class, whats the scoop there, you out robbing grave yards or what.. The only place i've seen them has been Lowes, or Home Depot.. in both cases they were pretty "dearly" priced, as i think they were intended for indoor counter stuff.. Havent seen anything else.. is this a seperate out door thing as far as the material or all the same.. guess what im trying to say politely is did you have to pay an arm and a leg or did ya get them at a half good price..

Hey Daisy, i've found the perfect target base, for all of you guys looking for a quick easy target base, see if you can find an extra real estate sign laying around.. Last time we had the home up the market was so bad the realtor didn't even bother to drive out and get her sign.. Shows initiative huh?.. anyway these are the metal frame signs that look like Tposts with a foot brace to make them easy to stick in the ground.. A little spray paint to cover up the old agency name, and i have a perfect metal target (primer grey) that im sure you guys will be seeing pictures of in the future..

the counter top

Limestone, the quarry is about 70 miles from here and the guy that does the sawing is just on the edge of town. 4' by 2' by 3" thick for 50 bucks each. Heavy though, about 250 lb each. Thanks for the thumbs up on the stucco. First shot at it for me

Don't know what the deal is here, but we see the flat beds loaded up with slabs that i assume are limestone.. Don't really know my "rock".. Did talk to a guy right after we moved here who did that "know a friend" thing about getting some cut if we wanted it.. We were talking at the time about doing our porch with stone, as i've always been afraid of large areas of concrete and cracking.. The price for the stone work was out of sight, so we poured instead.. been ok so far, but they did a good job with the re bar, and a thick pour.. 6".. with 10-11 inch turn downs.. have it with 10 foot expansion cracks, and they have cracked thru, but not the slabs, so happy..
