Still collecting bricks. Check out the Brick-O-Meter - we're 1/3 of the way there, thanks to some nice folks who are re-doing a really nice bungalow near my work, and who let us* make several trips back to their brick pile - they had to rebuild their entire chimney system, so there were a LOT of bricks. We got about 200 from them - and there are still more - if we've got time & energy. Most of the rest are half bricks (which we don't count, FYI), which will be useful somewhere in the design.
It has become abundantly clear that we'll need a WHEELBARROW for the landscaping project this summer, so in case anyone out there wants to send an early birthday present...or maybe Eddy will give me one for Mother's Day. I keep telling him to get a job & make some money, but a work ethic seems to be not in a beagle's nature.
* 'Let us', meaning they were going to have to load the damn things up and take them to the dump, so they're probably happier than us that we took the bricks.
