The rains taught us where the water flows. We had excavated our land in getting ready to build our EarthShip , this means that we had drainage issues.Water was getting into our pole barn. So when the rains stopped we decided to put in drain pipe.
Allen rented this Bobcat to help dig the trenches for the drain pipe for around the pole barn, and our EarthShip. He also dug the trenches for our septic system and dug out lots of tree stumps. We got a lot done. And Allen had a blast with this big boy's toy.
The man in the black hat and dark sunglasses does not work for the FBI. His name is Robert Jones our next door neighbor. He is very knowledgeable about drain pipe and so Allen is taking a lesson. Robert worked as a engineer. So whenever Allen needs help he calls his engineer for some advice. Robert and Lucy are wonderful neighbors. Willing to lend a hand whenever help is needed. They are the very image of what neighbors should always be like. Thank you Robert and Lucy for being so generous.
