My buddy Billy bought a Kubota backhoe/frontend loader tractor and needed a place to practice digging. "Come on over", I said as I pinched myself..."this can't be happening." Well, Billy got plenty of practice...poor guy. We cleaned up the shooting range, moved a dog kennel, fixed the family campfire spot, freshened up the driveway, dug up and dragged away a big tenacious oak stump, and dug this small pond next to the main pond. Within a day or so my son and his buddy had built this platform for high jumps into the still muddy water. As far as this pond goes, this is a "before" picture of it in it's current raw state. My plan is to construct a wetland with blueflag iris, pickeral weed, duck potato, etc. I will keep posting this project as it progresses. Posted by Hello

Where are the "NO DIVING ALLOWED" signs? That looks like a couple of "swimming holes" I dug when I was kid. I had to do it with a shovel, though.

Kevin,
I am working on a " No Fun" allowed sign...

Rick,
The battery jump chargers are much cheaper than surgery...good choice. As for seeing other blogs, here on Blogger you can click on that Next Blog button at the top right of the web page. That will take you to a random blog hosted by Blogger. Be prepared for weirdness, some are unusual and some "just ain't right". At the bottom of my links are a handfull of links to other country/nature blogs. There's something for everybody out there.

Thanks for stopping by...
