I got in a few motorcycle rides and in late May, I broke my femur on my left leg. I ended up with a custom brace to told everything in place so my leg wasn't flopping around. It won't let my leg bend enough to get on the bike though.
In June, I kept busy with rental property issues and we finally got the neighbor over to do some work on our deck. I had torn the old deck off about two years ago because it was beginning to fall down because the retaining walls were starting to press in and pinch the deck. We found out that the deck wasn't built that well to begin with. So we finally got around to doing the new deck so that people looking to buy the place wouldn't need to worry about it.
We tore out the old railroad tie flower beds and retaining walls and replaced it with a new retaining wall and had the old flower bed graded down to match the rest of the hill so that we could mow it.

Becky decided that the wallpaper in Patrick's bathroom needed to come down before the open house and she ended up scraping off two layers of wallpaper off and taking off all the paper off the wallboard. She learned to tape corners and then how to skim coat the walls. Eventually she got it painted a gray color and it looks really nice. Here she tapes in her first corner.
