And he's doing amazing!
So to help him get even better (and to give all of us something to do in the dead of winter) George decided to build a hockey rink in our front yard. But after spending a few hundred bucks on wood and a tarp, then filling it up with water, we quickly realized that the front yard slants considerably south.
But did that stop Carpenter George?? Hell no! he built up some side boards so the water can fill up in that end, which gave the rink the added benefit of looking like a real hockey rink. Plus he put in some supports to ensure the thing doesn't break with its incredible amount of water. Thankfully we're on a well so we don't have to pay extra for the water.

Plus, George even put out some lights, so we spent a good chunk of the evening skating, too.
All kinds of cars honk as they pass by. George waves like the country bumpkin he is, I just ignore like the city transplant I am.
