When we first moved into our house back in 2006 (or was it 2005?), our fence was almost complete. We were the last people on our street to move in, and our backyard was up against a major street. So the builders built the back fence, and the neighbors built the side fences. All we had left was the four foot sections on either side, at least one of which needed a gate.

Fast forward to last Christmas. Apparently my dad was tired of us not having the fence finished, and gave us a gift card for him to finish the fence. He came up for my birthday at the end of June and redeemed the gift card while I was at work. It was a surprise to me. I should have realized what he was doing when he called me at work to ask where my circular saw was, but I was so busy that I didn’t give the request a second thought.

Thanks, Dad!
