    Chase does ducks on Friday. Lift and fetch, move the ducks, bend to Susan’s will.

    And the stills: Cheryl has caught some wonderful expression — what a happy herding dog.

  2. The Patio Fencing

    October 1, 2010 by myeye

    I’ve mentioned Jesus (Hay-soos) and his guys who put up the chain link and the wooden privacy fence. They were going to have another man make the wrought iron fencing, but he was too slow and they thought his design was ugly. Jesus’ day job is building movie sets (and rounding up extras for the NM film industry). He knows how he wants things to look when finished. So, he and his workers decided to make my wrought iron fence. GREAT CALL! At least I think it is.

    The gate will be the lasered steel gate from my townhouse.  Jesus will be making a wrought iron gate (with steel screening) to replace it — after all, we don’t want Jennifer’s cats to get out!

    So, to make a long post longer — I am absolutely thrilled with the fenced area.  It’s very hard for me to relinquish artistic control to a bunch of guys — but I have no regrets about this one!
