Water line - part 4

Marcia worked on trying to get a good photo of Jet Trails #5, which is to be included in a brochure for the show in Oswego -- "A Personal Landscape: Contemporary Art Quilts." Friend Pat Pauly is the curator and is gathering the exhibit quilts for hanging next week. The opening is September 5th at the Tyler Art Gallery on the SUNY Oswego campus.

The new hydrants for the horse pasture are installed, the trench filled in, and the power outlets checked and are okay for use. Clean up will follow and inside connections for the new water line come next.

The bulldozer smoothes the trench and moves the remaining piles of dirts which will be used to "manicure" the barnyard.

The excavator drops a load of gravel to improve drainage between the horses' stalls and their water tub. Larry used his years of experience to shape the ground to usher rain water away from the stall doors.

As the last task for Larry, the whole lawn area disturbed by the project is treated to a final leveling and compacting of the ditch area. We expect some settling of the ditch and will probably need some topsoil before reseeding in the fall. Ahhh, the joys of home ownership!!!
