(and yes, we shoveled it all back into the truck and returned/exchanged it for the 3/4" size.)

Sharing my mistakes...

So, we got some stone pavers at a great deal from a business that's closing.

We're going to put them in the space that would normally be a sidewalk so when we park there we don't walk in mud.

First, we dug a big long hole. LOTS of dirt moved.

Then, with 30 minutes before the hardware store closed, I drove to get gravel for the first layer.

I got 3/8" gravel, spread it all out the next day.

Realized it won't work, too small. Needed the 3/4" size.

"Learning tax" :(

It's fun having an early morning call with other people in your timezone but at very different latitudes (in this case: Southern California, Northern California, and Seattle) and watching the gradient of outside brightness change over the meeting.

I think we're upset.

Day 1 progress. 25'x2.5' about 4 inches down. Well, that's the goal, not level nor ready for gravel, but that's tomorrow. Then sand. Then pavers.

Seeing Google AMP artifacts in URLs about the danger of a Chrome mono-culture, feels both incestuous and a bit telling about the state of that battle for the open web.

About 2 inches of clearance in the wheel wells.

Well, my wife is coming home with another truck load of stone. A pallet of some kind of tile.

Tuesday it was 3/4 of a pallet of slate tile. Today another pallet. I think there is one more pallet left to pick up.

The people who sell it load it with a forklift, we unload a tile at a time (the last was 12"x12" square).
