We knew the backyard fence at A Bitty Better was sagging.
Hover over a gallery photo for a description. Click on an image for an enlarged slide show.
As soon as we moved from The Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood, I took a trip to Lowe’s for the cinderblocks needed to prop up the saggiest section of the fence.
No way we wanted Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle seeing a dog on the free side, or even a squirrel scurrying on the top, and lunging her 65-pounds against that thing.
My dear wife Karen agreed that my quick fix would be enough until …
Our friend Jeff was able to find a few hours in his busy schedule to help.
Sunday, he came with a post and his tools.
Jeff dug a new hole. He replaced the dirt.
He attached the fence with long wood screws from the other side.
I provided encouragement and support.
It’s an old fence. But it’s much stronger in its weakest corner now than it was last week at this time.
Thank you, good friend Jeff.
What needs fixing where you live? What friends help you in a pinch? How does Jeff’s work look compared to my quick fix?
