Fence! Fence! Fence! Fence!

This weekend's beautiful weather brought an opportunity to finish the fence.

After an adventure at Home Depot, we eventually determined that it was NOT possible to get pre-made fence panels in 4' height as a stock item, although I had been told on two different occasions, and at two different stores, that it was.  Part of the problem may stem from the fact that it didn't dawn on anyone until told that I actually was trying to build a WOODEN fence, not a vinyl one.  Sorry, folks, I know that everyone touts the new vinyl fencing as the be-all and end-all of maintenance free fencing, but here's the thing:  Once it's broken, it's broken.  You have to throw it out.  Is it recyclable?  I don't know.  I don't care.  I'd rather be able to repair the fence and know it will last for years to come, even with Ian the Destroyer on the case.

Fortunately for me, as mentioned previously, everyone should have friends like mine.  What should have been a quick project turned into an all weekend affair, but the guys just kept at it and our beautiful, safe fence is ready to keep the kids INSIDE the yard where they belong!
