It has been a long couple of days without Randy. He gets back tonight and I will be so happy to see him.
First of all, I need to thank everyone that helped with the beam. My neighbors showed up, my inlaws showed up, my dad even arrived to help (Brandon had to work late and Ryan just wussed out). 17 and 1/2 feet of beam went into the house perfectly. The last 6 inches required jacks, 2x4s and a dodge dakota. However, the operation was a success and the patient (and all of the team survived). I wish we had gotten this on film.
