Clay?

Someone building a pond?

Job I did in Boston we went some 50 feet deep into the blue clay.

Stuff was beautiful, plastic, like modeling clay.

Would have made a superb range berm.
It’s river mud/stilt/sand. It’s an intake channel off the river for the irrigation district to pump up water for farmers. Water levels are low in the California rivers now, because they’re holding it all in the dams. So when it gets real low it starts to wash all the shit in the channel and we get less flow to our pumps.

Most appliance fixes arent too hard. Just a little mechanical skill and desire to learn.

Replaced a fuse on the back of a built in oven last year.

Same part (exact) with different brand and number was $15 and took 40 min to install.
Old GF thought she needed a new oven.

I enjoy fixing stuff though. Started with my dad as a little kid. Didnt know it then, but we were poor and had too. And he was damn good at it. Still is.

Im not poor, just cheap.

They are a handful for sure. This breed is very personable and will jump in your lap and sit with you. First time ever having chickens and I’m a fan so far.

EDIT: forgot about the Australorps. Hawks picked off everyone of them over a two year period.

I like the Australorps. They have neat coloring. We have 3 hawks on the property so I’m waiting on that game to begin. I caught them this morning teaming up on a little brown house wren that had pushed its luck going after their food. Two of them had it cornered pecking the shit out of it.

Have you had GP's before ?

The wife and I had Newfies. Wonderful dogs. I understand there are a lot of similarities. If so and if this one is your first, You'll really enjoy it. Make absolutely certain you find a Vet that knows what they are doing. We took our first Newfie in for a teeth cleaning and the Vet gave him too much sedative and killed him. For a 150 lb dog, you don't give him 3x the 50 pound dose..........:cry:
