This is the first time in a decade of collecting construction fence that anybody ever said NO. I went back, asked the guy nicely if I could have a few inches of it and he told me to go to the hardware store. NO, he said, I don't have enough. There were piles of the stuff lying around in the back and he couldn't spare 6 inches? I could have cried. So much for asking, next time. Ha - this gives Picasso's quote new meaning! "Good artists borrow; great artists steal."
Things should improve with our dinner at Chez Nous tonight. Can't upload any pix because I am on the Inn's computer and there is no visible USB.
Tomorrow, after breakfast, we head home to start our 29th year of marriage.
