Over the weekend Clause was surprised on his way out the back door…
Last weekend, after dark, Bob stepped out the back door to get the dog. His foot hit the second step and kept going. He then pitched right off the left side and landed on a plastic storage bin I hadn’t put away. It’s been sitting there for ages and I just never put it away. Thankfully, the bin broke his fall and he is fine, though perhaps a bit stiff. Poor Bob!
No longer feeling guilty for leaving the bin sit there!
A word to the wise: Never stain or seal fresh lumber that has been pressure treated. Pressure treated lumber is very wet inside and when you seal it, then it stays wet and rots. You must wait at least 4 to 6 months before you seal your wood. OOPS!
