Only Ten More days Until Christmas

The Christmas rush is upon us. Whether it is finishing up that dry stone livestock containment wall for Santa's reindeer, or  making that outdoor stone fireplace in time so the clients can   hang their stockings up, or perhaps just a dry laid bench for Santa's helper to work on to make some last minute toys, we wallers often find ourselves with Santa really breathing down our necks this time of year.

In the pic above, my helper Akira Inman is seen hurrying to lay the last few firebricks in the firebox opening before Santa got too impatient and foolishly tried slipping down the dry stone chimney before it was ready.

Thankfully, in this case, it was July, and the work actually did get done by Christmas.
