We Have a Deck

The campground owners encourage the seasonal residents to do their own landscaping here.  Our lot is all sand and river gravel. With one daylily in the shade of the giant cottonwood.  We have been admiring some of the lots that have decks and gazebos and flowers.

We were talking with one neighbor, Alan, and said we were wanting to put up a deck.  We said we were going to go to Menards (a local home improvement store) and have them deliver the lumber.  Alan said to wait until this weekend and he would take Richard to Menards with his pickup truck and haul the lumber here.  Then he came over later and said he would help Richard build the deck.

Well, yesterday Alan took Richard to Menards and they came back with a pickup full of lumber.  We wanted a two-part deck.  Each half is 8 x 10.  Alan was concerned about Richard’s heart and told him after it was framed, Richard should sit down.  Alan insisited on doing almost all the work.  And we now have a lovely deck to hold our picnic table and chairs. 😀 And we won’t be tracking nearly as much sand into the motorhome.

      We are here for the “season” until mid to late October. And we plan on coming back for the next few summers. It is within an hour’s drive of my parents; it has lots of shade; the owners and other seasonal campers are very nice; and the area has lots of things to see and do. 😀
