Filling The Boots

Retiring from the Fire Department in 2002, each and every Labor Day Weekend for twenty years, the Pres spent many hours "filling the boot" (Firefighters MDA).

Last week, it was a different kind of boot.  Removing the caps of the "boots" he made for each of the six pillars that hold the pergola, he  added bags of small stone.  Not only will it stabilize the pillars but also prevent rodents from nesting.  If any water does seep in through the sealed joints, the stone will also help with draining I was told.

just seeing, saying, and sharing...

That sounds like a good idea to fill those boots.
