As far as whats wrong with a building on blocks? Nothing I guess, we here in God's Country prefer foundations. Y'all down there do as you please.
These old tobacco barns around here have sat on some big rocks for a 75 years, given some are leaning 20 degrees, they are still standing! this little shelter ought to do just fine given we don't have a hurricane... and NC never has any hurricanes

No I don't take it seriously, just having some fun with it.

Speaking of CAT did you catch the CAT R&D guy mention that CAT had torque issues. And these CAT guys here thought I was just pickin on them.

This video looked like you were just chilling while you were swinging that dirt. Are most of your days "relaxing" like this or does it just depend of what you are doing? I would guess that might get a little mind numbing after awhile, just swinging dirt like that.

I'm relaxed evertime I run a machine... I have not been on a machine all day in well over a month... I look forward to pushing dirt with my dozer all day tomorrow.

btw, you know you like the singing

Just to make sure, you said "eated" to go along with your post on the southern way of doing things, like foundations on blocks and lack of indoor plumbing? It wasn't a slip, right?

This farm is a MONEY PIT!!!!!!

I love people that have more money than brains. I bet they come out and say "I was thinking you could....." about twice a day don't they?

Its got to be a $50.000 plus job isn't it?
