(Records ... small round things with holes in the center. You put it on a record player and you heard one song. 45 RPMs. I am sooooo showing my age!!!!!!)
He played it a lot. A LOT! Like over and over and over again a lot!
Until his brother came into the room and broke the record.
Never to be heard from again.
But because of the trauma of the destruction of this record, Honey has been fascinated with wheels. Cars ... tractors ... trucks ... wheels.
And 2011 has been named at the Lafrenz household, the Year of the Wheel. Maybe that should be the Year of the Wheelbarrow!
Truth in blogging ......... I know we have a bumper sticker on the back of the truck that says "We brake for Steel Wheels". It has got to be there! Under the gravel dust! Cuz that's how we roll! A lot!
We were driving to our favorite lumber yard and suddenly, we see a garage sale with garden stuff! And for a whoppin' $5, we pick up a steel wheelbarrow with a steel wheel.
The problem is ......... these babies are heavy when they are full of mulch or even weeds!!!!
So what to do??? What to do???
The PERFECT fire pit for Miss Eff's! Ahhh........ the beauty of it!
But the next project was a solution to a problem.
We need lots of seating at Miss Eff's! And we need it in lots of places! Sometimes, that means getting a bench from here to there! And occasionally, that means doing it by myself.
(Now, Honey has another explanation for the creation of this bench .......... mowing! But I digress!)
This is the prototype of the Wheelbarrow bench. We still have some tweaking to do!
Well, not we ......... Honey has tweaking to do! But it is very very close. And this is perfectly usable for what we want. Honey needs to tweak stylin' a bit!
This is NOT how tweaking is done!
