And talking about maintenance

It's time I did some at Mom's place. Although the house is still in very good nick, and I recently pruned her fruit trees, and the grape vines, there are some things which are now needing urgent attention.

For one, this gate, which is primarily for keeping out the draft, and the neighbour hood cats (according to Mom they don't jump over). It's been there for some time, even before my Dad passed, so it's more than 10 years. I'm going to replace the slats, but might use an expanded mesh instead of wood. The draft is not really an issue anymore, as Mom does not sit outside there anymore. And as for the cats, I'm convinced they just jump over. If they don't well, then the mesh will work as well as the slats.

So, work for this coming weekend then.

By the look of those slats, that's some vicious cats that live in that neighborhood. lol

I like the idea of expanded metal

Yes Expanded metal will work great! If you want to have a braai for a couple of people you just remove the gate and use it as a grid!
