goodbye horrid view obstructing picket fence!

will eventually replace with a steel railing (kind of country modern or something) but for now this secure rail will keep me from tripping over the edge. not kid friendly but my niece and nephew and friends 'kids (except Lanham) are old enough. will have to train pound puppy in fall not to leap. this place is in serious need of paint job (most fixtures removed, just need to pull lighting and fan units {shocking I know!}, sand sills and clean walls then painting will commence) well and a new ac. the 1988 unit just isn't cutting it and is sucking power (Ching, Ching, Ching). two-three more bids to go to get new one up and running.
