That is great to be getting free bricks plus rocks! Just be very careful and don't strain the back trying to do to much! Even small sized rocks can be so heavy!

Annie, what a score! I rarely come across anything for free LOL.

I think inheriting an old farm like that would be exciting. I hope the young man makes a good go of it.

My retirement is getting close, just a few more weeks. For the first time in my life, I should have the time to spend in the gardens that I have always wanted to Crossing Fingers!

Larry, I hear you. I can carry a max of 5 bricks at a time and I don't care how many trips I have to make back and forth. I'm surprised my arms aren't aching today! I threw my back out doing routine work in a stupid way a few months ago and it made me remember to be careful.

Terri. HUGS! I am SO EXCITED for you! My cousin retired at age 58 last year and she said she did nothing but sleep for the first week. When I saw her after a couple months of retirement she LOOKED GREAT: ten years younger. You'll love it. And WOW, time in the garden! What could be better. I think we're all so fortunate to have found gardening as a hobby/passion. We can enjoy it right into our old old age (not something those who have mountain biking as a hobby can say!)
Hurray!
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
