We'd ordered from Smith & Hawken a nice metal gazebo to go over our new outdoor table and chair set, and it arrived on Thursday. But the boxes were pretty banged up, so Diane cleverly signed for as damaged. My friend John came over on Sunday to help me set it up, and we noticed that two of the corner pieces had pretty serious dents in them, and then noticed that at least one of the long metal bars that connect the corners was no longer truely straight. So we decided to return the whole thing, and really, it's probably nicer without a gazebo, since the nice thing about a yard in San Francisco is having long sight lines with no interruptions.
A little disappointing to do all that work and not have anything to look at afterwards, but John and I did go to Spices on 8th Ave. for lunch, and that was really freaking good.
