Learn something everyday....

Today .....the Sea Bee and my Hubby have learned that fence building probably isn't something they want to do for 'a livin'.......


Our neighbor to the North of us has been trying to hire someone to replace his fence for several months now.......so Sea Bee and Retired Army to the rescue!!!




They got the fence down fine.....the neighbor even helped load it on the trailer.....

Then the "removing of the 4X4" began.....

all went pretty fine until that ONE......you know......the one right before the last one????......well......they were pulling and tugging then using the post lifter (has a technical name but I don't know it) and that is when it happened!! It snapped right at ground level.....I heard a 'crack'...turned and saw the Sea Bee heading one direction and the hubby falling and falling and falling.......the upper half cracked him in the head and knocked him down to the ground!! But being Retired Army .....he hopped right up and said a few words to the offending board then looked to see who saw!! Tonight there isn't a burse.....and no swelling.......
They went ahead and "set" the posts.......then called it a day........tomorrow??? Well.....I am sure there will be more to tell.............
