    Well, let’s see. When I was 58 I bought my first house. At 59 I rebuilt my patio roof, at 60 I built a shed from scratch, then two more smaller sheds, then a bench for my patio, then a wooden fence between my yard and the neighbor’s, then a pergola out front with jasmine on a lattice, then a raised planter using retaining wall blocks, then a 2 1/2 ft high x 70 ft long retaining fence along the back property line and spread about 6 cu.yds. of dirt to level the back yard. Currently I am building another raised planter out of the same kind of blocks in the front yard. I hope to be ready to order 3-4 cu. yds of good planter dirt and start transplanting my 30-year-old roses into it sometime next week. Who needs a mountain when they can play house!! (p.s. I’m a 69 year-old woman with arthritis and a bad back, but I’m having too much fun to let any of that slow me down)

    It’s when one stops that the rot sets in.

    Baby steps. Stain the deck, then climb the hill down the street. That way you wont be too far from the coffee shop.

    It’s women like you who are my heroes. I love to hear stories like yours. YOU GO GIRL!
    As for Adam, he should stain the deck – shouldn’t hurt himself too much doing that.

    Lara’s thinking they might as well be practical about this.

    Doing housework is safer then trying to climb a mountain.
