This is a cedar walkway that i built,I was hired to build a ramp to go from a walkway to a tent that they were going to use for the golf simulator.They wanted it built of cedar or redwood the only thing in stock in this area was 2×4 and 2×6 rough cut and it was terrible.I had to plane it joint all the edges round over all edges and sand it real good.It took 1 day to get all the wood ready and i assembled it the next day.After getting the deck built we helped another carpenter that they flew in from Colorado build all the handrails.By the time we finished that we started on a lot of various duties we hung about 200 pictures inside of the house I ended up helping out in setup for 3 long days.It turned out nice and had a lot of fun being around people from all over the world.Now at the beginning of the week we get to take it all down.And this part you will LOVE they want me to dispose of the ramp.I told them that i would be glad to dispose of it.Only problem is now i have to figure out what to do with it.

That is a really great idea!

You can contact your local B.P.O.E., Kiwanis, Knights of Columbus etc. to find potential needy recipients; and don’t forget you would probably be able to claim a tax deduction for the contribution.

if all else fails
put it in the back yard
on some cinder blocks
and you have a new deck


One day, a man decided to retire…

He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeded to have the time of his life, that is, until the ship sank.

He soon found himself on an island with no other people, no supplies, nothing, only bananas and coconuts.

After about four months, he is lying on the beach one day when the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to the shore.

In disbelief, he asks, “Where did you come from? How did you get here?”

She replies, “I rowed over from the other side of the island where I landed when my cruise ship sank.”

“Amazing,” he notes. “You were really lucky to have a row boat wash up with you.”

“Oh, this thing?” explains the woman. “I made the boat out of some raw material I found on the island.
The oars were whittled from gum tree branches. I wove the bottom from palm tree branches, and the sides and stern came from a Eucalyptus tree.”

“But, where did you get the tools?”

“Oh, that was no problem,” replied the woman. “On the south side of the island, a very unusual stratum
of alluvial rock is exposed. I found that if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into
ductile iron I used that to make tools and used the tools to make the hardware.”

The guy is stunned.

“Let’s row over to my place,” she says.

So, after a short time of rowing, she soon docks the boat at a small wharf.
As the man looks to shore, he nearly falls off the boat. Before him is a long stone walk leading to an cabin and tree house.
While the woman ties up the rowboat with an expertly woven hemp rope, the man can only stare ahead, dumb struck. As they walk into the house, she says casually,
“It’s not much, but I call it home. Sit down, please.”

“Would you like a drink?”

“No! No thank you,” the man blurts out, still dazed. “I can’t take another drop of coconut juice.”

“It’s not coconut juice,” winks the woman. “I have a still. How would you like a Tropical Spritz?”

Trying to hide his continued amazement, the man accepts, and they sit down on her couch to talk.
After they exchange their individual survival stories, the woman announces, “I’m going to slip into
something more comfortable. Would you like to take a shower and shave? There’s a razor in the bathroom cabinet upstairs.”

No longer questioning anything, the man goes upstairs into the bathroom. There, in the cabinet is a razor made from a piece of tortoise bone. Two shells honed to a hollow ground edge are fastened on to its end inside a swivel mechanism.

“This woman is amazing,” he muses. “What’s next?”

When he returns, she greets him wearing nothing
but some small flowers on tiny vines, each strategically positioned, she smelled faintly of gardenias.
She then beckons for him to sit down next to her.

“Tell me,” she begins suggestively, slithering closer to him, “We’ve both been out here for many months.
You must have been lonely. There’s something I’m certain you feel like doing right now, something you’ve been longing for, right?”

She stares into his eyes.

He can’t believe what he’s hearing. “You mean…” he swallows excitedly as tears start to form in his eyes,
“You’ve built a GolfCourse ?”
