A few weeks ago Hubby decided
that he needed faster internet.
(we really don't, but he thinks we do. If it's available he's got to have it)
(I seriously think it's a guy thing. What.ever.)
So a couple of weeks ago they came out to upgrade the
lines so we could get the faster speeds, per my husband's request.
They did the "outside work" on Tuesday the 23rd
and they would be out on Saturday to do the "inside work".
After they were done messing with the wiring
on Tuesday (while we were both at work)
we had NO internet connection.
I was patient ~ Hubby was apologetic and we waited until Saturday,

the large stone for the base but when it actually came down to
doing the attaching..... Um... no.
All I did here was wrap the roots around the stone and staple
them to the wooden base.
I covered the wire ends and staples with air dry clay
then colored it with inks.
