Last year, I held an open house for a seller of mine. A prospective home buyer was visiting and made a comment that the back patio looked terrible. It had round popcorn patio blocks with stones in between and was overgrown with weeds. She thought a brick patio would be much nicer. I told her that if she purchased the home, and the bricks, I would lay them. She bought the property and completely remodeled it into a beautiful villa. She called me recently to take me up on my promise. I've now laid the bricks for her. Of course I thought it would be fun to videotape the job. The camcorder malfunctioned near the end - but it got completed and turned out well.
