Another 16 Tons

Hello Again Readers,

Oh, my aching back! Well, things are moving along with the home project. Two days ago 16 tons of fill dirt were delivered and dropped in the driveway in front of the remaining 8 tons or so of gravel, which is in front of the monster dumpster.....

Flash back two days.... moving all of this material from the road to the back of the house is work, not only for Mr. Arm & Shovel, but also for Mr. Honda Tractor and Ms. Dump Trailer. Down the hill, through the garden, over the Dam, and on to the very end of the trail - the new 'around the house' rainwater runoff system. Gravel is heavy. Ms. Trailer's tow bar buckled and things looked grim! The internet found the repair shop but, yikes!, a two day turnaround! Off to Harbor Freight with my coupon. Viola! $80.00 later and a new, whimpy Ms. Trailer is assembled and the work goes on...... Stopgap......

Yesterday the ol' Ms.Trailer returned home, better than before. About 9 tons moved brings us to today and the next step - more sheeting on the house. Yep, pretty cool......

Salud

Ps. Got word that Tioga George is back in the states dealing with a few family issues. I am sending out my best to him and his loved ones...
