And really what kind of friends drive two hours, to help you build something OUTSIDE when it's 8 gazillion degrees by 7 am? THE BEST KIND.
They were here the night before so they could get a really early start that morning.
It really was over 80 degrees at 7 that morning, such a HOT day.

And they had that thing whipped up in a few hours.
They really are handy bunch.

Operation pergola, a great success!
