I can not believe how many times...
I've moved these bricks!!!!!

Now... I'm loading some of them up...

to take around the corner
and score them on the radial arm saw...

Dsc00777

yep... that's me...

I'm not so sure about this saw thing...
I take great pride in the fact that I drove tractors in my early adulthood years, big ones like John Deere, Massey Ferguson, and even a Cattapiller (not the bug!!!) or two!

But this saw, has me a bit nervous...
I'm going to have to re-think just how I might get the rest of these bricks cut...

I did get a lot of them scored...
and then began to break them with hammer and cold-chisel...

and then cart them back to the brick area
so David can fit them in where needed...

I am so grateful for David's help!

Thank you David!!!!!!!!

While David is placing the most recent cut bricks
with whole bricks...

I begin to clean the mortar off of the bricks
that once made up the outer edge of our original labyrinth...

I even come up with a means for shade...

Now... If I could just find someone 
to bring me an iced-tea... or an iced mocha... or...
anything ice-cold!!!!

and at the end of our work time,
the center is almost complete...
