Wrapped one up today

We started this creek bank project last november, and had to stop working on it due to the ground freezing up in early december.

Well, we were able to get back to it on tuesday, and we got it wrapped up this morning.

We ended up not being able to save the origanal bridge like we wanted to, but the finish product looks way better than it would have if we had saved it.

Just a few mixed before and afters

You're right, the new bridge looks better. Did you build the new bridge?

That would be a lovely bridge for a young couple in love and hornier than pole cats in heat to profess their love to each other.

Well Ron, maybe someday when you have a crisp $100 bill in your pocket and you are in the "right" part of town you can experience that.

Thanks guys.

Yes, We, I mean my guys built it. But, I did design it. And I stopped by to give moral support from time to time.
