Up To His Neck



Oh, so they ... huh?

That had to be uncomfortable all of those years. He probably felt really relieved to finally be able to stretch out and walk around...

Wow.

LL said...

It's even more interesting when you consider that space aliens made them. Yes, I watch "Ancient Aliens" on TV and believe that it's real...

Katy - It's nice to be able to scratch that itch after 1500 years.

WoFat - like an iceberg.

LL - Ancient Crazy Ass Aliens. Why did they plant them?

My guess? Those in control had them carved, in the first place, as... shovel ready work. Essentially too many people and to little work makes for... revolting outcomes. So... you make work. My guess? The next statue to be placed wasn't ready. So... "Dig!" Hehe

I just helped dig down to plant a hydrant in my back yard two years ago. That is crazy hard work. My guess is they didn't even have metal shovels or picks. Ugh. Nasty hard work. That soil looks as bad as mine. My dig was only SUPPOSED to be down maybe four feet. Oops. We ended up having to dig eight to nine feet down, to hit the water line, but that wasn't enough because you couldn't get in to work at that depth from hand shoveling (which was a minor miracle itself). Backhoe, that's... all I'm saying. What a chore!

Doom -that is one deep waterline. How far down does your frost line extend?

Doom said...

Like I said, should have only been four feet, and that is safe hereabouts. Frost only rarely, if ever, gets two to three feet deep. We can only guess why it was so deep. But... I think I'm good for the next ice age. We wouldn't get glaciers here, so...

Man that was a chore!

Doom - My SIL rented a backhoe when we dug a curtain drain around his first house. Went down about four or five feet with it. I followed his spray painted arrows and lines on the grass and still managed to take out both his main water line and the line to his leach field. What a day...

Woot! If you are going to make a mistake, do it with style! I'm jealous. Might have to try my hand at it next time! Them's some mighty big shoes to fill though. :)
