The Big Dig

Broke ground yesterday.  By the close of business today, I will have 900 ft of trenches dug, 6 feet deep and three feet wide.  The next step is to lay out the pipe that carries the secret magical fluid back and forth from the house to the far reaches of our back pasture.  The “system” is then pressure tested, and if all goes well, then we begin back-filling on Thursday.  Bostonians are sissies.

  1. Let’s see…nine hundred feet divided by seven … Why, you’ve got room for a nice size chunk of Congress to be buried there. Let’s not waste all that space.

  2. Great Jim, You may be responsible for getting The Chronicles flagged by HLS. But it really is a capitol idea! (see what I did there?)

    I wouldn’t worry so much about DHS. It’s the EPA that’ll be all over your ass for burying hazardous waste. There is a limit to how much toxic shit you can bury in one pasture!

    Hey, we can apply the “Shawshank Redemption Corollary” to this project.

    “Mack had to dig through 1800 cubic yards of TN clay or about the equivalent of one day’s output of weaselshit from the U.S. Congress. I can’t imagine, or maybe I just don’t want to, how foulsmelling that truly is!”.

  4. Okay, that made me laugh.

  5. Mack:

    I just took a second look at that pitcher of you in the trench. I thought you said it was 6′ deep. I know you’re, what, 6’4″, 6’5″? Either that trench is 7′ deep or you’re fakin’ us out by “doin’ a dorf” ala Tim Conway.

  6. 6’4 and a half, but I try to stand in a way that doesn’t intimidate. Makes me appear “approachable.”
