My friends know I spend a lot of time (and money) at Costco! Pete and I have even been known to visit Costco's in different cities to see what they have...it is a real problem! I'm a self admitted costcoholic! We purchased this gazebo at our local Costco in June and it sat in the garage until we removed the pieces and put them in a separate yard. There they remained all summer, while weeds grew overtop until this past weekend when we found time to put it together...to this stage, anyway. Now, this was not an easy feat, as it contained what must have been 900 pieces and instructions that were poorly translated from Chinese. All we need now is 8 to 10 strong people to lift the roof up onto its legs (as my Dad says...we need to have an "erection party")...hopefully before the snow flies!

We learned this morning of the passing of a good friend, George Reinecke. Pete and George had worked together in the past and had formed a strong friendship. He had been ill for a number of years. Our condolances to his wife Annemarie, and sons, Stefan and Peter.
