We had a few friends over to help build a ramp today.

Who am I kidding?

We grilled and talked with their wives. The kids played. The 2 engineers and a contractor built it.

Mostly it is salvage. Hubby dismantled an indoor ramp (free craigslist), another friend delivered some 2x4s that were hanging out in his garage. The guys swear the pier blocks and sheet of OSB were leftovers from other jobs.

We will surface it tomorrow. Hubby wants to design and weld/build custom (read artistic) rails. I will line the walkway with a line of bricks or small flagstone so the wheelchair won't tip over onto the grass. Rope lights are in the future.

But we have a ramp.

Over beers and burgers and the sound of a nail gun we celebrated our 15th year of marriage.

There is symbolism in there somewhere.
