dirt for filling in a swimming pool

Rightreading is a little worn out. This is about 10 of the 120 cubic yards of dirt that he is using to fill in his swimming pool.

I think I’ll be back blogging tomorrow.


Always check your work




  1. Think of how good all that shoveling is for your character. I always enjoy watching men at work and look forward to photos of the completed garden.

    Geez thats a huge pile o’ dirt! Surprising to know how many of those you needed to fill that big ole’ pool! Hope your back held out okay…I will come visit to sample your garden tomatoes at harvest time.
