Been getting any rain?

Nope....which is fine....phase 2 work on the pond starts next week and it'd be helpful if we didn't get any water for a week or so.

You gonna put in a pool for the grandkids? Brooke is on a mission to put in a pool next year. Also wants to talk to the neighboring landowner about adding acreage if they decide to sell. She has delusions that the kids will build next to us. I plan on giving them the keys when I retire and run away

We have had a pool for 20 years...we considered it here....and maybe one day. For now we are expanding the pond and we'll put a swim dock on it. Our grpwn kids would rather have that then a pool. Hell....pool companies are 2 years out rught now anyway.

Bro....I'm all done with living around people who don't think like I do. I'm actually glad to pay extra since most people won't....fork diversity, inclusion, and all the other words I never heard growing up. I'm living with my people....completely finished with anyone else.

I live here now....and I couldn't be happier.

Oh yeah... dozer and excavator showed up today.....rain can't be far behind. :yes:l
I’m just right on the other side of the river from your new digs and they’re calling for a chance here this weekend and then potentially again later this week.
I feel you though. Just dropped the high lift and excavator off to start clearing for a lagoon.

Yep, they will drag it out til a few weeks before Duck Season. Then it won't rain for 40 days & nights. Kinda like last year. Most duck impoundments will be high & dry. Another year without killin a duck. Way to think ahead bro.:z

Had to go meet a fellow yesterday afternoon and as soon as I dropped off the ridge, it began raining like I've rarely seen. The car in front of me on the interstate was merely a ghostly image. While the intensity did drop off some, there was a good, steady rain for the next 2 hours. I get back home and not a drop had fallen at the house, not one drop. It's been 4 weeks since I've gotten ANY rain and walking across my yard is like walking on cornflakes.
