He's No Whimpy Tin Man!

It was another one of those overly hot weekends. The heat index was over 105 degrees, which made for slow work. We returned to the compound on Saturday to find that the pond was full of ground water. That's a bad thing, our ground water has a high concentration of salt. We are in the process of having some sand brought in, to fill in the pond back above the ground water level, which should be a foot or so. The sand, rather than the dirt and roots we took out, will make it easier to work with the liner and underlay. We played around with a couple of pond ideas this weekend, and never got around to the garden fencing. As with most things, one step forward, two back.

The liner should get here on Wed. of this week. It weighs a whopping 960lbs. It's going to take some effort to get it moved and in place. We're calling in the troops to help this weekend.

Well, the Moose is stronger than he looks. While we were clearing some more trees and roots from around the pond area, he broke our axe! This was after he out used the chain saw. He's no whimpy tin man...
