STUMP IS OUT!
12 Sept 2005
We finally levered it up using 2x4's and large rocks
to lift it. (LOL broke the 2x4's in half.) After we got it out of the hole, we
rolled it out of the way. Now to fill in that hole, It's about 3 to 3 &1/2
ft deep by about 4 ft wide. Bless Tom... I never would have done it with out
him. (Lordie, I hurt... that was real work!)

I got up late, but
was out working on the ditch by 10:00 am. Filling in the hole the stump left
went very fast, in fact it surprised me. I did some minor leveling. then quit
for the day. I don't think it took but about 1 and 1/2 hours to complete. It
rained this afternoon. So more work on leveling the ground in the ditch may or
may not be what I do tomorrow. It will depend on how wet the ground gets. I
don't know if you all realize how wonderful it is to have that stump out of the
way... It is a wonderful feeling.
The rain will help
settle the dirt and rocks used to fill the hole in, I did pack it pretty well
but all disturbed ground needs to settle before building on it. Getting the
stump out will save me about 200.00 to 300.00 dollars that would have been used
to buy cement to incase it.
you all have a good

It rained cats and
dogs last night. The lights went out twice so I went to bed early. Out by 8:00
am... Looking at the ditch this morning, I could see from where the water left
its water marks what wasn't level. So I did a little work but the ground is
really to wet to dig in. Try again Friday... Tomorrow is grocery shopping

Well, I think we are
making up for no rain in June/July and part of August. It rained again last
night. The tempitures have dropped into the 70's (Yea!) but boo on the working
in the dirt... I mean mud! but still it is the best thing as the water causes
the ground to settle better. One day of dry dirt and I can level it completely.
Then start laying the foam logs. ..more tomorrow..
