Mending Fences

Once again the pooch's zealous jumping on the front fence has produced nasty results - a board fell off the front gate and some of the slats along the front popped out. The unfortunate problem is that I only have inch and a quarter long screws and that's why it's not holding up to eighty pounds of pouncing.
A quick check of the clock told me that the local hardware store closed in five minutes, so I dashed up there. After a hasty purchase of two inch long screws I was back in business. Now I may have gotten a little carried away with the drill but the fence is not coming apart anytime soon.
