Chickens and Dirt


I thought I should also mention a few words about my chickens, and the dirt we received.  My babies are no longer babies.  They have quintupled in size since the last time I chit chatted about them.  They are all getting their feathers and eating a ton.  They grow up so fast (sigh).  Now on to the dirt.  We ran out of topsoil.  Wait, let me re-phrase.  Paul ran out of topsoil for row construction, and he put in a call about a week ago to the topsoil mine to get some more.  The woman behind the desk said ‘yeah no big deal, we can do it in the next couple of days’.  That was about a week ago.  Today she told Paul that she forgot to write it down, and now he’s at the bottom of the list, and that we would not be getting dirt for another week and a half.  She didn’t leave him there though.  She gave him the option of having another man deliver it.  Only his truck was less than half the size of their truck, and it was only $10 cheaper.  And Paul was actually considering it!  I said just wait, and they’ll try to get to you next week.  But low and behold someone cancelled their load tonight, so the folks at the top soil mine called Paul and delivered it tonight.  Hallelujah!

  1. Here is a spring quote for you.

    In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood

    And in your case I guess you’re going to smell like a lot of it.
    Karma must be good these days.

    Have fun.
