Default "That car is hot - it's like a fresh pair of Nikes" - said someone driving by

the gas station yesterday on a side road - he slowed down to a stop and stuck his head out the window and told me that with a big smile. I didn't hear him right at first and signaled to repeat and sure enough that's what he said. I thought that was pretty cool

That's cool. I get someone almost weekly asking at gas station, or parking lot.

Had some kid say, "dude, that's tight" one time. Another guy stopped me Saturday morning asking what I was driving and how much they cost.

You just don't get that with a Cavalier.

Told him it was a Q5, but heavily modified.

Just gave him a range, saying base models $34K all the way up to fully decked out Sport model at around $65K.

LOL, yeah been there, done that with crab grass taking over my fescue, but I have higher expectations with the zoysia. Also since I put down some good topsoil to keep the grass happier and less susceptible to crabgrass. And I'll do my pre-emergent maintenance to protect my new investment as well

Here's some shots of the patio going in:

I used a 100' tape measure to lay out some thoughts I had for a patio to see how the size would end up:

Previously when we had good fescue grass in the spring before crabgrass took over in the summer (pre-shed also):

And then as the prep for the sod:

Previously did some similar stuff around front of house and trees as well:

Measured a radius from tape wrapped around tree to get perfect circle, already knowing how many blocks would fit nicely into a circle at my desired size:

I really enjoyed the landscaping pics too. While the winter shot was beautiful, it reminded me of what's coming,

I've shut the sprinkler system down, the snow blower is in the shop for a needed repair, furnace checked and serviced, additional insulation blown in earlier and getting ready for a final coat of wax on the cars. Bummer...
