More Brick

Let's face it, Southern Man has a weakness for free building materials. And so when a truckload of free brick popped up on Craigslist yesterday he jumped right on it and yesterday afternoon and evening was spent loading brick and hauling it out to The Land and unceremoniously dumping it, twice. It took three trips (it's good red brick, very pretty and a good match to the red shale that's about the only native rock out there, but very heavy; filling the bed half way had The Titan plenty low on his springs) but the last load (OK, half-load) didn't make it out until this afternoon. And it was just too cold to do much of anything else out there but there is now probably six hundred bricks that need to be cleaned and stacked and allocated to whatever upcoming project calls for lots of red brick. Plus there's a fair stack of white brick from the last outing. What can one do with red and white brick?

The cast-off mailbox is quite deliberately set several feet off the driveway so I can put in a proper one this summer.

Do you think a day will come when the postman will no longer deliver man to our homes? That maybe we will have to collect it at the post office ourselves?

Do you really think our government would ever give up a jobs program like the Post Office?
