Workaholics have a hard time letting themselves heal up, Bob. The couch is your friend in this case.
Get well soon.

Still doing the foundation. Things have been doing slow. I think I've helped dig out 6 large trucks this week. Every delivery something has been going wrong. Dry weather has the sugar sand nearly impassible after the big trucks move thru. Got one stuck yesterday and tried to snatch with a chain resulting in a broken chain, broken windshield and glass in the drivers eyes. That truck got pushed out with a loader(last pic). 2 more loads coming tomorrow should give us what we need to just fill the foundation...
My poor old beat ford 640 is doing the dirt moving with a grader blade. It's just like me, not sure why it's still running. Cracked block, cracked head. Not sure which problem is worse. Getting oil in the water or getting water in the oil... I have to keep an eye closely on temperature, fill the leaking cooling system frequently. I brought the oil level up to full first thing this am....the level is now above full by maybe a quart and it looks a little like chocolate milk...come on baby, one more day...

No E-Man, the scrap didn't do it. It started a year or so ago. I would feel a burn in my nether region after walking the dogs a couple miles. I moved the scrap very carefully, not lifting anything heavy. Kept getting more of a pain until my guts were sticking through my stomach wall.
After two days I'm still a hurtin' puppy, with some painful nerve action in my right upper leg, along with the incision sites and where the mesh is placed. I did go to breakfast with a couple friends this morning but skipped the Rod & Custom Show.

Not one to ask for help, I'm sure I've overdone lifting heavy objects a thousand times. Just caught up with me.

Smalls, the Dump truck looks hopelessly stuck.
