Now we can go on with the day's posting. Friday, 11 November, 2016.

|Waterfall Almost Ready for Tile|
let's see if I can describe how the water gets to the waterfall. First, they will cut a narrow channel in the PVC tube at roughly a 45 angle toward the front of the waterfall, running approximately the length of the tube. Then they are going to position the top row of rock tile so that it slants in toward the PVC tube. This forms a reservoir behind the waterfall face, which when full will allow water to overflow the face of the waterfall and to cascade randomly down the almost six feet of rock tile face into the pool itself.
At least that's the theory of operation. We might find out Saturday if that is how it's going to work. It'll be interesting in any case.
Also, Saturday, the deck and ramps will be pressure-washed. So, once that is done, we should have free use of the deck and the ramps. Dianna will be able to go easily down to the patio and down to the parking area. Both things she hasn't been able to do easily at all since her accident.
