The Deck & The Margaritas Await Your Return

The guys next door, Grant and Bill, built this deck last month, finishing it just three days before Bill fell out of a tree he was trimming at his place down near the ocean.
Bill was only about 7 feet up when he fell but he landed very badly, breaking his back in several places, his neck, a couple of ribs, both wrists, and fracturing his skull.
The good news is that our friend and neighbor is going to be OK. The doctors say he's really lucky there was no spinal cord damage and he's home now, recuperating down at his full-time residence, after several weeks in the hospital.
The cabin next door belongs to Grant, and he and Bill use it for week-end getaways, nearly every week. Grant was up over this past weekend to put a coat of varnish on the deck, but Bill won't be traveling for awhile yet, so I thought I'd post this picture for him so he can see how nice the deck looks stained.
Bill has the carpentry skills, doing most of the work on the deck, and he and I much enjoyed gabbing and exchanging ideas as it took shape. We also had a blast christening it over Margaritas.
Peggy and I send our love, Bill...
GET WELL QUICK!
