I floated my armada down storm drains and gutters...

Red bear, thanks for memory jog

LOL when I was young I would float model ships and bottles down our creek & shoot at them with my .22, then one day I realized you can't have war without fire so I dumped 10 gallons of gasoline into the water & lit it on fire, boy you should have seen all the fire trucks they had to build a damn about a mile away to keep it from spreading any farther, lit a couple of the neibors fields on fire

I have done a few things, bus has slowed down this summer we only have a couple late summer long weekends trips due to wifes new job

So more time at home means we need a place to chill out

Wifey wanted some yard work done so last couple weeks have been digging,scrapping burning etc...we hate our field grass (averages 36 inches tall) and mowing etc takes up too much time, we don't have...

...so we are going to redneck lay a bunch of concrete pavers, add a fire pit that is not just 1/2 of a 55 gallon drum I want Koi so I am doing a pond
I have always wanted one, so why not

As we have been demoing every evening she wanted a water feature to relax to until pond and stream are done so I put this together for her sunday





I will post some pictures when progress can be seen, we want low maintenance and a full concrete yard was too much $$$$$$$$$

Get some Minnows going in that tub. That way, you'll have something to feed the Koi when the pod is ready.

I am fantasizing the sound it makes...nice!
