Over and Done With

What the porch looked like the night before

This thing parked on the flowerbed and started digging.

This thing delivered the concrete septic tank

Septic tank; I had no idea there was a large rectangular box too. Live 'n' learn.

Before they came in for supper and drinks, they buried the septic tank and filled the lagoon with clay. Scott still has some connecting lines to work on, but the dastardliest of the deeds is done. The next day he called me over to look at the spot where the lagoon used to be; not that I care how it looks, as it's in the pasture and behind trees, but maybe it was just to share a moment of relief and triumph. Thank god that horror is over with. Now just to come up with the $7000 or so to pay the bill.


  1. I can't imagine managing a project like that---I can't even imagine taking the photos of a project so huge.

  2. The photos were the easy part, as you can imagine. I often listen to Scott organizing the details of various construction projects, and wonder how he manages the stress. I'd be pulling my hair out. I think he enjoys the challenge of solving the problems.

  3. I know the feeling. I am currently siting under a roof that is one half brand new steel, one half elderly cedar shingles. The disruption is stressful and so is the paying for it.

    But, having it done after all the stewing about it is priceless!

  4. It was a pain in the ass that seemed neverending. At least paying for it will be over someday!
