No, you rock!

Thanks for the shout-out. I actually spent this past weekend working on some landscape design around my house numbers. One more weekend of work and it'll be ready to show. Your numbers project, house and mailbox all look fantastic. Great work. Can't wait to see how the rest of the landscaping turns ...
