Just another manic Monday

Here it is...the wonder of waste management. The poo hole.
If you live in the country I bet you have one of these. We had one of these when I was kid growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. I loved it when the big truck would come and clean it out. Because today is Monday and I have no life, blogging about septic tank clean out seems appropriate. I missed the truck coming today because I was working...I missed the big hose, the excitement. I heard that one of the companies that does this sort of thing has a motto on it's truck that says: "We are number one at taking care of number two". I sure hope that was the truck that came here today!
I don't want to leave you with visions of dark, dank, stinky septic tank holes. Here's the crab apple tree in front of the house that always puts on a great show in the spring. I just wish blogger had scratch and sniff because this tree smells heavenly!
Not only is this a pic of my beautiful tree..you can also see where Jack ripped out the big square bushes in front of the dining room windows. Now I just have to think of something to replace them. Maybe holly bushes?

Better to get it cleaned out than replaced!! We had to do that a couple of years ago $$$$$ The tree is Beeuatiful!

We have a company in South Africa who collects sewerage. our farm still has french drains, and their motto on their trucks is
"We take your crap"...........
