“Uncle Joel, it’s too hot in here. “

Normally TB isn’t interested in joining me on the porch in the evening but even his ‘new things are bad’ extremism has limits. So this evening he’s joining me in the breeze, and for the first time seeming to enjoy it. June has finally had its way with him. 🙂

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    A point, which is too late to make a difference: screws are expensive. I’ve found that using three on the ends of decking boards, and only two for crossmembers in the middle, is perfectly adequate. This wisdom is the experience of 15 years of deck-aging observations.

    I have always enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the sun go down and the night come alive, exchanging daytime smells with nighttime smells, and the sun’s intensity with the night’s soft sounds. YMMV.

    That is nice feeling, sitting out on teh deck or porch with your dog just enjoying the quiet solitude.

  3. TB must like that picture. He looks like a big dog!

    Has TB shed his winter coat or did you run the clippers over him?
    Seems to look a bit shorthairish in the pic.
    Nice deck all round. Looks like this is also going to be my own “big project” this year, huge deck out the back side of the house, now if I can just get motivated…………

    I was going to suggest shaving him if you have the tools to do it. That coat is more appropriate to a cooler, wetter climate.

    I talked about shaving him with a groomer and she said if you shave a double-coated dog like that it never grows back in right.
