Damn and I thought my list of finishing the shop, rebuilding the back porch larger, & building my son a treehouse was gonna be tough. I'm sure you'll get it. I'm slow and lazy.

You wait till they all fall guy, otherwise you will be doing it everyday till they all do fall, I found the best way to fix this issue is to prune the tree,

I know.. I should wait. I have to clean the dog shit every week or two otherwise it gets a little busy back there is you know what I mean. That means I have to blow the leaves around to have any chance of success.

Finally got the gutters installed. I didn't do it myself. I don't have a seamless gutter machine.. so.... Plus hanging a gutter is tough work on a 2 story house.

Anyway, I fail you. No pictures. I promise, soon. I'll get pics of all the little shit I've finished up.


/end lame no picture update.

Unacceptable! I demand exciting photos of gutters NOW! Specific thread for gutter porn?

You can see the big faded spot in the middle of the fence.... that's where the park sprinklers spray.. over the fence and all over the side of the house. wtf?

I've complained to the city.. they've done nothing. I just went out there and adjusted the sprinklers myself. I still have one more to adjust. Dicks.
