My Thoughts
I think concrete blocks are like 2x4 studs. No matter how many you order you always run out. Anyway, we got 519 all ready to go for tomorrow. It looks like another beautiful, but hot, day. Our prep work is done. We are ready to roll.
Many thanks to all those who volunteered and made this a reality.
