Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    We've closed on our new house! After a brief stint as renters, we are now officially back up to our ears in debt!

    Hooray, I think.

    Here's a shot of the place from the front and back:

    Here's a shot of one of the long pieces of the chain-link part of the fence, before we got the fabric put up:

    And here's 160 feet of fabric ready to be hooked up:

    Finally, a shot of Zeus monitoring the fence building progress from his lordly perch on the deck:

    Update: I just noticed that this last shot also captures the dismal condition of the existing fence in the back of the dog kennel area. I just wanted to note that the bad section will be coming down, so it won't always look that atrocious.

    A dawg, a gun, a truck, and a fence...

    And holy fence, Batman! I'm tired just looking at it. You must be busted down.
