  • I really dug up our past

    My wife wanted some nice, fresh sand around a flower bed. 

    It was a simple request, and just as any well-intentioned man of the house would do, I managed to postpone it as long as possible. 

    However, my excuse well had run dry. This was one honey-do task I was not looking forward to. 

    At first, I considered a trip to Porter-Belk Lumber Co. for a couple bags of sand. But, hey, that costs money. 

    These days, with all of this green-thinking, recycling is back in style.
