Lamp Post

24 hours before Maria and I were hosting a post wedding reception for my Niece Lynette, Maria came home with a lamp post for me to install.
For those of you who know me, you will agree there is a reason I am not an electrician or a gardener or any thing else mechanical. I am just not good at it. But I agreed, we really do need more light in the back yard for parties.

Of course the problem with a lamp post is that it needs power, and that means digging up the lawn the day of a party. To prevent future accidental encounters with the power cable I decided to bury the cable under the exiting cement. I had to dig under the cement with a hand trowel for about 16 feet. Maria was very concerned to see the lawn still dug up just 5 hours before the party

A total of 5 trips to home depot plus a very redneck gave the desired results
