Out With the Old...

Hewwwow!  Finn here.  One day, Momma and Pops were going about their regular going-to-work routine, and I heard a big truck pull up.  They had ordered a new fence for the back yard, and the company had a cancellation that day, and guess what?  We were getting that fence that day.

Momma said it's funny how things work, because on that same day, her commuter train line into the concrete jungle was suspended.

A train hit a car and killed a man earlier in the morning.  Trains were cancelled on her line until 3PM that day and delayed on the other lines around us.

So she got to work from home while the fence guys put up our new fence.

Out with the old.


More investigating
After my initial investigation, I decided it would be best if I just laid down and let Momma take some pictures and I would wait until it was all over.

There was a lot of grinding and banging and I didn't take so well to that.  I was sure glad Momma was home that day!

Adding the posts

We had to wait a day to let the cement dry before they added the...

Gates!  In with the new!

    That is certainly one very very pretty fence! Of course your early inspection of things let the installers know you were on site so they better do a good job!PLUS your mom got to spend the day with you, win win

  20. That's a really nice fence! You did an excellent job snoopervising. I really need to get a new fence one of these days.

    I saw your post on George and Tess' blog. That museum your mom used to work at is really pretty.

  21. Wow I love your fence! I hope the whole thing wasn't too stressful for you, I hate when there are strangers at my house.

  22. Love your new fence! It looks really nice. We're glad your Momma was home that day though we're sad for the man's family who got hit by the train.

  23. What a lovely new fence! I suppose it was worth putting up with the banging for that. Loved seeing you at George & Tess's Saturday Steps :-) woofs and licks from Magic xx

  24. Wow - LOVE the new fence! I'm pretty glad your Momma was home with you that day, too. I know Bella would have been beside herself with that kind of activity but even a nice stable dog like yourself had to be bothered by it.

    Very sorry to hear of the train accident. What a tragedy.

  25. Helloooo Finn ~ I just came from George & Tess, I enjoyed seeing you with them on the step post! With all the heat we are having seeing those chrysanthemum and thinking of fall, well for a second we wished it was here. No I am happy with summer. I got eight event pics ready so far for the Olympics.
    You got a privacy fence and it looks so nice.
    Thanks for being a friend,
    Sweet William The Scot
