On my way out I noticed a couple of very average mountain bikes in the rack next to me. My guess is that the owners were inside picking up some butts and Allen's coffee brandy.
But anyway, as I was loading the trailer I looked back and the bikes and noticed that the seat clamp on one was replaced with a pair of full sized, made in the USA, vise-grips. I'd call it Yankee ingenuity, but this is just too much of a hack solution to garner that prestigious label.

Today she gave me a gift. A gift of alone time. I worked on a patio I am building for her today. Today was the 4th session of excavation. During the 1st session I removed the existing gravel and flat stone. I used that material and made this:
Then there were two more session of additional soil removal. Today was the fourth and final. I have move a total of approximately 17 yards of gravel, rocks, and till and now have a perfect hole to backfill with stone, sand and and the concrete patio blocks. The following pic is the end of the 4th excavation session/. 7 hours today. 22 hours total. 10 tractor hours.
This fucking shit will not frost heave when I am done. Effort in equals favorable results out.
Excuse my derivation from good formatting, I am too damn tired to care. It is beer O'clock
Oh yeah right. i haven't posted in a while...I got a tractor. Its frigging aWEsoMMMMe.

I woke @ 7am to whipping wind and pumeling rain. I take a look down the drive way and see the culvert is backed full of water and sheeting across the driveway. Knowing it was probably only a couple of sticks, I went down with the steel rake and cleared it out.
After a breakfast o eggs, pancakes, toast, juice and coffee Wife took the boy to Augusta for shopping. This gave me time to go fill tthe truck with gas (81$ for 21gals) and start some yard work.
I sharpened the chain saw and set to work. Cutting up everything that needed cutting. For over and hour I cut. Now that its all smaller the pile build can begin.
Lunch came @ 3pm. Some thia leftovers.
At 4 the boy was napping so it wass the perfect time to head to the grocery store for some food. The picture here is after the return, while I sit and type this post on my cellphone.

This was a long week. Twice it took me more than an hour to drive home on snow and icy roads. Like lots of other people I'm sure. Tonight I got home to 10inches in the driveway. waiting for me to move.
It took an hour. Like usual. though my back has been very sore for the last couple of days. And that didn't make it any easier.
But its done and look what I founf in the fridge.
