Jack is clearly into the knight thing lately. Here he is standing on our annoying patio surface. This surface was put in by the last owners (and builders) of our house. It is the surface of all the house walkways, and of the two back patios. From a distance, it is charming and cottage-ey. Close up, it looks like it is falling apart. And from a practical standpoint, it is a broken ankle waiting to happen. Especially after a martini. We hate it but aren't going to replace it because we are selling the house. Well, we hope the house will sell, anyway. In this market, houses in this price range don't have a large buyer pool so I think it will be hit or miss. We will see.
