Morning entertainment

Alternately titled: Who needs a television when you have a landlord like mine?

My landlord lives next door. Yesterday a large piece of construction equipment appeared in his yard, so I knew some entertainment was in our future. Luckily we were at the barn in the late morning and able to witness the action. I think we were also lucky that our landlord hired someone to operate the excavator, instead of doing it himself (he is big into DIY). Also, that parenthetical note is a huge understatement.

Naturally, we grabbed mugs of coffee and pulled up our chairs to the window to watch.

The above photo was taken just before the digging commenced. The conversation between the excavator operator and our landlord provided some good opportunities for Greg and I to do voice-overs. We thought we were pretty hilarious, but it probably wouldn't be so funny if I tried to repeat it here.

This was taken mid-way through the dig, during a break to measure the depth of the hole. I have no idea what they were digging this hole for, but it was Really deep. Obviously you can't see the hole in this picture, but you can get a pretty good idea based on the tremendous mound of dirt piled up. The digging continued even after we had left, so by now the entire yard could be dug up. There is really no way of knowing.
