not a bad idea



"If its troubling you that much," Lon said as he was making steps in the back yard. The snow thawed, it was warmer than usual. Besides, winter wouldn't really be setting in until next month, sometime. "We could build a shed out back."

"Oh, I dunno." Ellie shook her head, no.

"Go on, you know you want to do something for Blake." Lon shrugged. "God knows, how many hours he put in, with building that room on to the house."

"I know." Ellie bit her bottom lip. "Could we?" She talked about how the yard wasn't that big, but it was do-able at the back of the fence line.

"He might not have his own bathroom." Lon told her.

"Yeah, that would be so wrong." She guessed.

"Its not an apartment, you know. Just a guestroom. He could be away from the kids." Lon told her.

"What about power? It would be cold in the winter." Ellie shivered slightly in her old sweater.

"We'll insulate." An easy fix. "We'll just ask him about the power. He'd know about that." Lon decided.

Just then, Blake came out the patio door to see what was going on.

"What are you guys doing?" He was holding the baby and Charlie was right under him.

"Oh, we're just thinking." Lon chuckled.

"Thinking what?" Blake winced.

"Well, maybe you can help. What do you think about making your own space, out here?" Lon looked at him.

"Well...uh, I made a washroom once, out on a ranch." Blake shrugged.

"So it should be easy." Lon grinned.

"Yeah, I think it would." Blake grinned back.


Lon looked back at Ellie. "See, it wasn't so hard." Lon looked at the space. He hoped Blake could handle it. "I'll give Kyle a call. He could help."
