I like the man building our fence.

He just gave me a peach-blueberry turnover and told me that he'd bring us fresh trout on Monday. Mr. Fence Man, it is enough that you and your crew are building us a fence at rock-bottom prices and that you brought your puppies over to play with Toby yesterday. It is wonderful that you talked about how you wanted to go and help rebuild fences on Kauai after Hurricane Iniki and how you built a fence around a macadamia nut farm on Kona as a barter for airfare and lodging. We like you already. But we will not object to being fed.

Mr. Fence Man goes on my People to Make Pie For list.

=D What a nice man. This was the good karma balancing out all of the weird handymen who came to fix your apartments in SD and NY.

Seriously! He is very nice. I am so excited for our fence to be done, so we can quit worrying about Toby running into the street and so we can be unself-conscious goofballs in our backyard.
