San Andreasphault

As happy homeowners (well, us and the mortgage company) we decided each year we'd do one major home-improvement project. Last year we had the wood burning stove reconnected. After a winter of our snowblower picking up rocks from our increasingly rutted gravel driveway it was pretty clear our next priority was to have it paved. We collected quotes, I got the professional opinion of a man reparing a parking lot, and Cooper Paving was hired.

Monday, September 12th at 7:00 AM an energetic team of half-a-dozen or so gentlemen arrived. They stripped down the old gravel, sand and abundant weeds then laid down a bed of pulverized stone. Then they put down the asphault, taking special care to slope it to access our garage, front porch and entry to the road.

"It followed me home. Can I keep it?"

It's kind of strange, looking so clean and new.

We like special touches so we were delighted when the installers agreed to sprinkle in some loose turquoise nuggets we had. Posh, neh?
