Welp - between that guys insurance and my awesome agent we’ve been made whole after that dude pulled out in front of my daughter a couple of weeks ago. Her TT was totaled... but I bought it well and was paid out about $2500 more that what I paid (after putting on 14,000 miles!). They actually paid out very quickly, which was surprising.

So, I’ve been scouring replacements and she went with the low-mileage, one-owner, A5 3.2 Quattro I had sourced... (Good. That was my favorite.)

So we’re all pretty happy about it. Except my wife who would like for me to sell all the cars and get a skateboard. Since I heel slower now, that’s outta the question.

So I planned to lay a 4'x4' slab outside each of our patio back doors, "the easy way," with Quickcrete Walkmaker. Each 2x2 foot section requires 80# concrete.

Had to till up about three inches of soil to get the stones at the same height as the slab. Thank God for an electric tiller.

Managed to get down a 4x2 section, trimmed the edge to make it 3'x2'. Fuck it. Has been all all day affair. Haven't mixed concrete since I was a teenager, now I remember why.

I may expand it when the weather is cooler and do the west entry then, also. For now the concrete is curing and I am going to have to deal with a mud pit until the grass grows back.

There is a reason professional contractors come at a premium.

If I survive doing this, if I ever mention working with concrete again, someone come down here and slap the shit out of me.

At several points I just lay in the cool earth awaiting loss of consciousness in the 95° heat. Bet I sleep well tonight.

Glad everything worked out great, Nuvo.
