While most people are out enjoying a picnic in the park, or a cookout in the backyard, we chose to actually do some labor on Labor Day. I had painting the two garden benches on my to-do list since early summer, and before autumn comes I decided to get moving on this project.
Yesterday afternoon I finally got Tony to take the hardware off for me, since the nuts and bolts were pretty much rusted to the thing I didn't have the strength to remove them. It was super hot yesterday so I bribed him with the promise of a REALLY good dinner.
Note that Tony left himself last night. We left the benches and boards on a table in front of the garage door. He thought he might forget this morning that they were there, and back into them. I added the child-like drawing for him before I went to bed. Keep in mind that I drew this with the lights off, and only the light from the moon that was shining through the kitchen window.
