This morning, Ray painted the back side of the rest of the fence posts.
Jay and I loaded up cordless drills, cordless saw, screws, hammer, and pry bar in my little black wagon, and rolled it to the outside of the fence. We got all of the old boards replaced. We just have to cut some trim boards when we get the table saw out tomorrow to do another job.
