What's Wrong With This Picture?

As most of you know (if you've read the posts anyway LOL) that there's been a road crew in the neighborhood for the last few weeks. They've been using our upper driveway as a parking lot for their equipment and to store the gravel, with our permission. They promised to fix the driveway....smooth it out again.....once they were done.

Well, they finished the work around the neighborhood last week and this past Monday, a guy came by to fix our driveway. When he was done, he came to ask us if we were happy with the repair as he wasn't here when they first started the work and he also said that they'd be picking up the remainder of the equipment either that evening or at the very latest, Tuesday morning.

It is now Thursday and this is what's in my driveway:

The ONLY thing they've gotten is the bobcat. They left the excavator and several of the Bobcat attachments.

I guess it's not really a huge deal that they've left it. We don't use the upper driveway that much and even if we did, they haven't necessarily blocked us from using it. I just find it funny that they said they'd be gone Mon., Tues. at the latest and stuff is still here.

It also makes an eyesore from our new little patio area.

Oh! I haven't shown y'all that yet, have I?!

Well, here, let me give you a bit of a teaser :-D:

You'll have to wait til next week for the rest of the pictures and details. :-D


  1. Cute patio! How is the driveway? Is it acceptable? Road crews NEVER move their equipment when they say they will lol!

  2. Thanks! Hopefully we'll have grass there next year.....that's about the only part of the yard that grows grass well! LOL I've got better pictures showing our new patio off and I'll post them some time next week. :-)

    The driveway is surprisingly nice! They had gravel pushed up a little further on the hill side then we wanted, but John just took a yard rack to it and got it off the hill side....we'll then use that on the bottom driveway. :-D

    Can you believe that they came today but they took just ONE bucket attachment?! One! They left the excavator and 3 other attachments. Oy vey. LOL

    1. LOL! Wow. Next time they come out tell them you're going to start charging rent or tell them you saw some neighborhood kid trying to hot wire it haha! :D

    2. Haha! I told John that since they say possession is 9/10th's of the law, wonder how long before it becomes ours? LMAO ;-)

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK.
