One of the fittings in our front yard drip system had a bad habit of coming apart and gushing water for extended periods. I tolerated it for too long because I wasn't sure I could easily find the appropriate fitting, but a recent blowout was the last straw.
I upgraded the latch on our side yard gate from a standard U-style (upon which a rivet previously failed and I had to repair with stainless steel hardware) to a fancy self latching unit, which was generously given to me by my dad.
We bought our trusty Ford F-350 before we moved to Paso, and it proved to be a good decision. As great as the truck has been, it had 232,000 miles on the odometer when we bought it, so it has needed a little work. Here's the projects I can recall from our year and a half with the truck.
I was kind of feeling like we were really slacking on projects since moving into our new house, but after completing this post, I realize we've been staying pretty busy. Anyway, here's a quick recap of all the projects I can remember completing in our new house in Paso.
