Dean's Birthday Stone
I drove Dean out to Marenakos in Issaquah the other day, to help pick out a natural stone birdbath for the garden. It's what he said he wanted for his birthday. This one weighs over 300 lbs, and had to be loaded by a tractor into the back of our truck. We didn't think about how we were going to get it out of the truck until after we got home. I was amazed that the two of us were able to slide it off the back of the truck and into the wheelbarrow. But I did not think we would be able to get it from the wheelbarrow into the bed without one of us straining our back, or getting a hernia! Fortunately, it slid off the wheelbarrow and right into place. And I think it has turned out quite lovely. Don't you?
Happy Birthday Dean! You are my love and my light. And one helluva swell guy.
