Is that not the question that EVERYONE asks? I think the proper answer is, like the little red hen that it will get done faster IF YOU HELP.

Just kidding. Remember, it's supposed to be fun.

(M) The CAPITALS are my "correction".

When she returned to the barnyard, the Little Red Hen asked, "Who will help me make this flour into PIZZA dough?"


Not I," said the duck, the pig and the cat all at once.


"Then I will make the PIZZA dough myself," said the Little Red Hen. And she did.
When the dough was ready to go into the oven, the Little Red Hen asked, "Who will help me bake the PIZZA ?"



Chow,



Marcel

Hey KC, Hooray for another Colorado oven! Where are you located? I am in south metro Denver, near Highlands Ranch.

I'm in North Colorado Springs.

All my neighbors think that a Pizza oven is about the coolest thing they ever heard of. Not much help, but ready for the party.

KC,

I'm getting a lot of that too. Lots of oohs and aahs, even more talk about the first party, but no help mixing mortar!

Best of luck with your oven,

Sharon

I was able to get the block foundation built. I decided to go 5 courses because I'm 6'2" and didn't want to bend over. Now I remember why I didn't want to work for my uncle laying block for a summer job!
