December 6, 2006

Ground has been broken...

...since the first morning.  Well, actually, it was 9:00 on Wednesday morning.  We weren't there, but our new neighbors told us that they started at 9:00 am.  By lunch time, there was a Huge Hole where our house is going to be. Next to that hole was a Huge Pile of Dirt.

According to Jordan, a Huge Hole is the 4th greatest invention of all time. Huge Piles of Dirt did not even make the top 10, since Holes are inherently cooler and Huge Holes have considerably more comedic value than Huge Piles.

The Huge Hole has begun! Huge Holes are accompanied by Huge Holes of Dirt. Wouldn't it be fun to drive an excavator?  We're going to lose some of the saplings, though.

There's going to be a lot of yard work to do! Facing south to the neighbor's yard.  They just moved in. From the neighbor's yard, facing north.

For those who are curious:

#2: The airplane

The utterly unrivaled first would, of course, be the Cheez-It
