Giant Hole in the Mud (aka the new pond)

On this wet and icky morning, digging started on the new pond, which quickly turned the back yard into a giant mud pit.

Sadly, the crew had to throw in the towel after a few hours, due to the treacherous muddy conditions. They should be back on Thursday to finish up digging, install the liner, and schlepp around the boulders! Woohoo!

I would bike 1000 miles, and I would bike 1000 more

I bought a recumbent bike (Rans Rocket), and have had no end of joy biking around town. I've had it since 9/2007, and yesterday, I passed 1000 miles. So, I'm the equivalent of 1/3 of the way across the United States! Wahoo!
