The leaning tower of barbeque

While cutting the grass on Monday, I noticed that the concrete barbeque grill was leaning slightly. Backward. Looks like I'll have to take it apart and see if I can re-level it. I moved it to this spot about seven years ago.

The grass is nice and green this year because of all the rain we've had.

I dug out a foundation and filled it with sand so that it would be stable. Everything shifts over time, I suppose. As it turns out, we don't use this grill much any more. It's pretty far from the kitchen, which is upstairs and on the front side of the house. These days we use the little electric grill on the deck a lot more. I've already used it once this spring.


  1. Thank goodness you were able to steady the grill before Callie or Bertie came to any harm.

  2. Good news out of the Palais Bourbon! Time to update your "newsiness". Félicitations!

    1. dean, yes! We have the parliament on tv live. Just saw the vote. :)

  3. You might have had the next tourist mecca... The Leaning Barbecue of Saint-Aignan!

  4. YAYZ FOR FRANCE! so much more civilised than the USA.

    your house and mine are shaped similar; a cape cod style. and you have a lovely yard for callie to run around.

  5. Until I started reading your post, I didn't know this was your house. I don't think you've ever posted a picture of it from the back before. The religious nuts in Paris are going insane about same-sex marriage.


Tell me what you think!
