Busy with Dirt

Just when you are too busy to think things clearly your neighbor has a truck load of dirt delivered.  In the middle of some very busy weeks and even busier weekends our next door neighbor had a situation develop in his backyard.  A huge sink hole appeared.  He called all the local utilities to make sure it wasn't related to any other issues.  Everyone said it was his job to take care of it and it was nothing to worry about.  (Except for the fact that it was huge and if someone fell in it might take time before anyone found them.  Forget a pet falling in.  It was deep.)
 The good news is that there are a lot of us so we make even a mountain of dirt move quickly. 
 Well only while having fun climbing and falling in the dirt.  I had to sit back a watch, but loved the time talking with Mrs. K as we "supervised" all the hard workers. 
 It did take several hours but they did it.  The sink hole was filled, fun in the dirt was had and the extra dirt was put in our yard to even out some holes we have. 
It just goes to show you that you never know what the day will hold.  You wake up thinking that it will be adventure free to find out that today will be a dirt day.
