I actually finished up the patio door install this weekend. I can't tell ya the last time I actually completed a project like that! (There is still some tiling to do in our bathroom remodel of seven years ago. :P )

Smoking meat sounds fun. Our neighbor has a green egg that he uses a lot.

I spent all day Saturday raking leaves only to have my neighbor's landscaper come and blow leaves through my fence.

Yes Mark, it was off my pear tree (which is taller than my 2 story house but does not extend past my fence to his yard) but that still isn't cool. I have 16 trees on my little lot and about 40 shrubs and bushes that are leaf magnets. There were leaves blown into thorny bushes and into my mulch beds. Luckily I found my gloves otherwise I'd be all cut up. Next time I see my neighbor though I'm going to have a friendly little chat.

I ended up making a day of it and got the entire back yard raked. I even went so far as to bring out the extension ladder and saw off some limbs from 3 pin oaks on the other side of my back yard that do overhang my fence and deposit leaves in his yard. He doesn't seem to care but I needed to trim some overhanging limbs. I ran out of light but tomorrow I'm going to rake outside the fence on his side, then I'm tackling the dead grass on my hillside. I dragged the limbs on top of the hill and need to cut them up so that they break down faster.
