we're all digging, too

my backyard and i made a new friend this weekend -- the garden hound.

the rain softened the soil in many places, so the hound and i were able to make reasonably quick work of a large section of the yard. i'm not exactly the right height for this tiller, but in spite of that fact i think we were a pretty good team. i slipped in the mud a few times, but that was hardly the hound's fault.

cam borrowed his dad's concrete breaker (a huge metal rod) and was planning on, well, breaking some concrete, but the lightning storm earlier in the day sunday gave him some qualms. he ended up trying it out, but stopped after we saw that we'd all need eye protection, at the very least, from the flying chips of stone and cement.

it was nice to see some progress in the backyard again.
