Ever since we've moved out here behind the barn, I've wanted a walk-through gate close by, to get out to the pasture. The way we've been doing it, you walk way out to the east and around a fence post. If it's been raining, you have no choice but to walk through mud.
A gate just hasn't been high on the list of priorities.
Yesterday, though, it happened. We already had the gate; it was no longer needed in the particular spot it was in. Cliff actually did most of the work in the garage, framing the gate and preparing it for a latch that we haven't yet purchased.
Then we went on to Lexington and got some Sakrete, which Cliff put in the post holes to stabilize the posts. While there, I dug into my "fun" envelope and got out enough money for a footlong sub at Subway. Cliff and I will each have half of that for our supper tonight.
It's an absolutely perfect day, and much has been accomplished.
