    Advancing age and cushy living, or is it the amount of prescriptions the VA assigns me? Either way, it seems like more things that I didn't feel seem to ache more often and take far longer to heal. Old Age, it ain't for sissies. LOL

    Well we removed a chunk of grass, leveled the area out, laid the 5/8's minus gravel and installed the edging.
