Yesterday, just as I was going out to the car to drive to the lumber yard, a guy in a pickup truck pulled up in my driveway and asked me if I'd be interested in having some recycled asphalt put on my driveway. Seems he had a couple of (small) truckloads of the stuff extra that he needed to get rid of, so he was willing to grade the driveway and spread the stuff for a lot less money than normal. Perhaps it was unwise, since I'm unemployed right now, but my driveway really needed some help. If this stuff performs as expected, it will be much better than the usual mud pit for a long time and it will be money well spent. If I do end up moving to a new job, I think not having a bunch of muddy potholes where the driveway should be will increase the chances of selling this house.
