    F’em if they want to stop me from going out and relaxing. Built my own area to relax, home brews, my own label wine, freshly made ice cream and hamburgers today.
    the wife and I brought in 2 tons of dirt, clay and rock and started filling in the backyard. I decided I wanted a garage access to the patio area, wife decided she wanted the fence moved for a garden area, she also decided she wanted lights.
    She wished it, made it happen!!!

    Started this project four weeks ago, finished the door yesterday, the lights and firewood stack area today.
    Now I’m just waiting till August or September To plant some clover for ground cover.
    Leave it to the government to give me a reason to get off my deadass and get the gumption to build shit. Lol

    Awesome rest area. I love the wine/drink holders.

    That is a fair stock pile of firewood you have there as well.

    With @Baldhead_J 's idea, it would be complete - and remove any reason to find anywhere else to rest, drink, eat and stay warm.

    Great job!

    Only thing I see missing is your bike parking area needed so, you can kick back feast your eyes on that beautiful ride while indulging in cold brews while, watching the neighbors turn green with envy.

    At night you can see it clearly if the garage lights are on from the patio area

    My neighbors are all either 80 plus are early 20’s. So too old to ride any more or millennials and don’t care about motorcycles.

    Posted some videos from last night on Facebook of the fire with music from a local rock station, wouldn’t you know it, face-plant book cut the audio but left the video. Something about music belonging to someone else.
    So I have question. The music was playing on a free station in my garage, I was not charging money for anyone to be there, I own the house, radio, backyard patio, chairs, fire and beer/wine. So the question is, “WTF FACEBOOK”???????

    A place of refuge is needed in the world we live in.
    It will subside at some point....hard to imagine right now....but it will.
    You and the Bride enjoy the privacy and refuge.

    Beanbag toss is cool too....or the regional label.

    In Iowa they call it playing “corn-hole”. Where I’m from corn-hole has a entirely different meaning.?o_O

    So, some of your neighbors possibly drool from another cause and not from looking at your bike.

    Nope.....the stars and moon was aligned...the youngins I beat bought into it....:p
