Prepare to Repair

If the weather holds, Sam and Bonnie are coming out tomorrow and Sam and I will make an assault on repairing our fence. (Sam and Bonnie are coming out regardless of the weather, barring something apocalyptic arriving.
The fence repairs are subject to being called on account of rain.) In the interest of minimizing the number of trips to the hardware store, I headed out there today and picked up materials.

I'm going to try to get by with the 2x4s that are sitting on the patio for reconstructing the cross bars. But I now have a new Douglas fir post and a dozen cedar pickets, carefully selected by removing the crap that was sitting on the top of the pile outside and finding the ones that were intact. They were a bit damp, so I set them up to dry out in the garage, which caused Gretchen to comment, "The garage smells like pencils!"

Yes, I suppose it does. :)

I also bought two new hammers, having broken two hammers on this project so far. And nails, because you can't have too many nails.

We'll see how this goes.
