The Postman’s creed goes “Neither rain nor snow, nor sleet nor dark of night shall stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

You can tweek that slightly and apply it to Rick and his merry band of helpers who have been working on the shed.

Saturday morning was cloudy, cold and uninviting, but that didn’t stop the crew from picking up from where they left off last weekend.

First order of business was to dig a trench (as opposed to a moat, which would have been really cool).  For this he enlisted our friend Keith (sorry for the butt shot).  It only took him a couple hours to complete his task and covered everything back up.  I couldn’t even tell that the ground had been disturbed!

It was also a day of heavy lifting, and since I was still sickly (cough… wheeze… hack) Willard came back for the back-breaking task.

Seriously, I could not have done this!

After all of the walls had been covered, it was time to walk the plank…

Carpenter style, that is.  Have I said how grateful I was that somebody else was there to help so I wouldn’t have had to climb up there?

By the end of the day, we had a roof on half of the structure.  I was one very happy person!

I was so happy that I didn’t even mind that nothing was accomplished Sunday.  Besides, even Rick deserves to take a day off.
