When Life Imitates Work: The Fence Project

Jim Bolek Fence Project

I Have Not Lost My Marbles

By Jim Bolek

When my wife Sheila and I restored our house 27 years ago, we built a block wall around the backyard to keep in our dogs and kids, and keep out other dogs and kids. But we wanted to be good neighbors, so the wall was only four feet tall. (We had small kids and non-jumping dogs.) We could talk across the fence, keep tabs on yards when neighbors weren’t home, see their dirty laundry, and so on. Nude sunbathing was out, but that was rarely an issue.
