set in concrete

The Resident Expert, kitty, and I are considering making our own concrete counter for the laundry room.  I got a book and DVD on this topic, and it looks like a labor intensive but not all that complicated or expensive DIY project.  And the results can be pretty neat looking.  Should be fun.  And working with concrete helps us recall Tobias Wolff’s This Boy’s Life:

He asked me what the school was like in Chinook.  When I told him I went forty miles downriver to the high school in Concrete, he said, “Where?”

“Concrete.”

“Concrete. Jesus. What are they teaching you?”

You’ve got everything you need, right here in Concrete.
