    Hey I got wet when I maxed out the waders putting the end board on the dock!

    No I really brought the tractor to pull my trailer with the wood and tools down to the pond. It was really wet and did not want to tear all their nice new grass up driving my truck back there.

    Alright I started on my big dirt moving job, I've got to grade this area out to make a parking lot. All the dirt will be moved to the far end of the lot and blended in with the ground 40' above.

    Freaking kudzu vines are everywhere, I've fell down so many times looking at this job, can't wait to rip them all off tomorrow:weightlifter:

    I hate that freaking Kudzu, we did a job in Feburary ripping that stuff out. There is no way to pile that stuff up in a neat pile and grab with a 4n1...

    Key words "could have" lol

    That's amazing what those prices were. I can't believe what that stuff sold for. It's the time to buy if you have the $.

    What's so bad about Kudzu? Is it as bad as black berry brush we have here?

    Well It grows about 12" a day, will destroy everything in comes in contact with, once it goes up a tree it will completely cover the tree and kill it. does not matter how big the tree is... It's screwed. Take your riding mower over it and it will stall the mower within seconds. the stuff sucks!

    Then I put the root rake on the tak and scraped all the kudzu vines off the lot.

    I like to watch the trains go by... I crushed a nickel and a penny on the track today... It does not take much to fascinate me.

    Crushing pennies is soooo much fun when there is rail road tracks near by.
