The Big Dig

The big dig is the sewer line hookup. In an earlier blog, I told how we did the plumbing for the new bathroom before the foundation was laid. The end of the pipe stopped just inside the garage door and now it was time to dig through the garage floor and out across the yard to the sewer. Of course, we waited to do this, after Steve had already painted the garage walls! Dirt everywhere! Josh, our plumber friend came over to help when the digging was all done which was the way Steve planned it. Josh was really a big help with the hook up.

Some out the garage door shots of the trench.
The pipe went under the walkway near the driveway as you can see in the car shot.


In two of the pictures, the man looking on is Josh's Dad, John. He watches as Josh connects pipe down in the trench.

John grew up in the house next door. His parents were original owners here in the Gregory Ain tract. We couldn't put the sod back right away. Had to wait a day for the inspector to sign off on the hookup which he did.

With the drain hooked up, the hole gets filled and sod goes back on. In a few weeks this grass will look as good as new.

The inside of the garage is filled in with dirt and it will now get a layer of cement and eventually the whole floor will be redone.

All of this hard work of digging and hooking up and refilling the trench got us to the fun part - installing the bathtub.

Of course, Dylan Thomas wasn't really interested in all this work. His main concern as always is when is it time for a walk around the neighborhood. Here he is waiting patiently.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',
