    UCH!
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Two days ago I got stuck in my own back yard trying to park my dump trailer. It's rained every day for almost 2 weeks (after 4 months of no rain). We all know that mulch works for a little while until it doesn't work any more, then it turns to muck. At that point you either have to keep adding more mulch or scrape it all off. I decided for long term benefits I would scrape it up and extend my gravel (crushed recycled concrete) driveway. I don't own a skid steer so I did it with a flat shovel and wheelbarrow.

    In my front yard I have a ditch that runs the entire length of the property. But I'm on a slight hill so water only gathers in the last 10' of ditch then runs over. So I decided in order to better catch the rain and make my property more user friendly I'd fill in a bunch of the ditch that wasn't doing anything anyway. A month ago I got a load of about 5 yards of dirt. Today I added the mucky dirt scraped from the back yard and about doubled the amount of ditch filled in.

    Either this afternoon or maybe tomorrow I'll go buy some gravel. Looks like I can use 2 loads, or about 8 tons.

    Damn Brian. Looks good, but also looks like a lot of work.

    We had a big blow last night .There is phenominum often called straight line winds or gust/nados ahead of a weather front that can produce winds of up to 110 MPH for a short period .Sure enough it hit my woods and snapped the top out of a 3 feet at the base 100 foot 200 year old bitter nut hickory .What a fine kettle fish I have now .That pot licker was solid as rock,no rot and 2 feet in diameter 40 feet up where it broke over .Now I have to figure out how to get the top cut off without squashing myself .I'll get some pics in a day or so .As if I don't have a lot to do now this .
