Southern Man

Saturday, June 09, 2012


Today's big event was the purchase of a new trampoline for Twelve-Year-Old Daughter's birthday (her previous birthday trampoline was pretty torn up and was abandoned in a move) so having shopped last weekend we piled into The Titan and headed to Academy - which was absolutely packed, with a huge crowd of people in the front of the store crowded around tables piled high with shirts and jerseys and caps celebrating the local team's recent victories - and finally got the trampoline purchased and loaded and then headed off to Home Depot to get some stakes with which to anchor it down only to be told that "we don't have those, but Academy does!" so back to Academy we went for the tie-down kit and then we headed to The Land to set it up.

We set it up behind The Trailer. That's The Workshop in the background on the left, and The Barn on the far right.

Twelve-Year-Old Daughter frolics on her new toy. This plus The Trailer (with kitchen, AC, and video player) ought to make trips to The Land a bit more bearable for her. But Southern Man has got to get a well down out there.

This was also Twelve-Year-Old Daughter's first visit to The Trailer so we brought food and had our lunch there as well. Alas we could not stay long as she had an afternoon swim date with her cousin later that afternoon so we headed back to La Casa for her swimwear and went to the Ancestral Manor, which gave Southern Man an evening to himself. But then Southern Son came by and we went to Wal-Mart and did a little shopping and talked for a while. He's going through a rough patch right now and needed support. Also, food. Happily enough the girls got home in time to see him and cheer him up a little as well. Lord, guide and direct my children in all that they do. Amen.

Do you dig a well yourself or does a professional team dig it? How does the red dirt affect your water? It's all good right?

Most of the wells in that area hit good water at about 160 feet and have to go through a couple of layers of shale, so it's a professional job. My dad, on the other hand, lives on a river bottom and can get garden water at thirty feet. I'm in an oil state and drillers are fairly easy to come by; I just need to save up 3K or so for the job.

As for the son, I can only try to be the best dad I can.
