    Just sitting down for a beer after shoveling a little over 17,000 pounds of stone (4 loads) off my pick-up for the driveway. Shoulders should feel real good tomorrow. Not.

    Your pic didn't show up. But I'm sure that I can't afford it. I have more ambition than money, so I have to do it the hard way.lol

    I dug 380 feet of ditch last Saturday, Sunday I glued and dropped 380 feet of 1 1/4" water pipe and installed a freeze proof hydrant.

    And Monday I was surely stiff and sore.

    I rented a ditch machine to do the hard work.

    Whenever I have projects to do that require it I rent equipment. Backhoe, ditch digger, self propelled work platform, dump truck, whatever. But I do own a motor grader and a tractor!

    We had an old 8N (If I remember right) when I was young. Yours is in good shape.....looks good. I've rented lots of equipment before and even owned some different equip that I wish that I still had. But I don't have enough use for them now, so I will just rent when need be. I used to have a B7100 Kabota compact tractor with a loader bucket and 60" snow blower on it. Until I woke up and realized that I spent more time at all of my neighbors houses doing work with it than I did at my own house. And the neighbors never even offered money for fuel. lol So I got rid of it.

    I hear ya about the neighbors. Mine learned real quick that if they wanted to wander over and ask me to do anything they had at least better have a case of beer and a jug of fuel.

    I had bought mine brand new 1995. She had a loader, snowblower, and back blade. Man.....I miss that thing. The neighbors never did authorize me getting rid of it. lol

    Sitting here having morning coffee, reading about my Brotha From A Different Mutha in his skivvies, and wondering why it was so nice all week (sunny and temps in the mid 80's) and now that the weekend is here and I have work to do outside it is 55 degrees and drizzling.

    I have 380 feet of conduit to glue, then a ditch to fill back in and then after all that 400 feet of wire to pull.

    Guess I'm gonna get wet today.
