Weekend Project


Each year we buy several trees for our property to be planted and this year is no exception. Several weeks ago we planted two trees and now, even though our backs are sore and we were not ready to dig some more, we had no choice but to get this tree into the ground. This was possibly the last weekend that we could undertake this project so we could not put it off any longer. The days are getting more into the cooler weather and now we were facing rain in our forecast for several days. Ameridad started the day out digging, digging, and digging . . .


. . . as beautiful as our property is, underneath it is solid clay, making this job even harder . . .


. . . I even tried to help, tried but not so much help . . .


. . . sitting down on the job while I am working? Wonder who he is talking to?


. . . Ameridad called in the cavalry to help! Yeah, O will help us . . .


. . . Thanks O, great job! You are wonderful . . .


. . . first two to sit in the shade of the newest tree!

I do have to add, so no one reports us for child labor law violations, that in fact Americdad, O's dad, and O's grandpa helped finish up getting the tree planted.

Thanks for your help!

Note: No children or trees were hurt or injured on this project. I am not sure at this time if I can say the same about the adults.

Hard work never kills anyone - so says SS, sitting on her butt on day. Seriously, your place looks very nice!
