Ruth - awesome deck!! I'm impressed. I'm sorry I missed J, we were in Swat last week at my Mom's, but left for France the 8th. Say hi to J for me, and enjoy lounging on your new deck!

I may want to hire him - seriously! I love the railings - a really nice touch. Does he want some side work?

This is beautiful! We're trying to convince Billy's uncles to do the same thing for us! Love the railings.
