Step 1 5/8

Thursday, July 16, 2009. It is over 90* out, no shade, no breeze.

This is the mountain of concrete I have to work with.
Most chunks are 4-8 feet long and wide. So, I just started by stacking the pieces that were small enough for me to move.

Did I mention it is hot?
Very Hot!

With no breeze.
With no shade.

But I keep on working!

Doesn't look like much but it was hard work!

Saturday, July 18, 2009.
Over 90* again.
No breeze.
No shade.
This time I have a sledgehammer!

Which actually makes life easier because now I can make the chunks the right size.

And it is kind of fun too!


Did I mention it is over 90* today?
With no breeze?
With no shade?

Who do you think I am imagining is in front of the sledgehammer?

About 2 1/2 hours in.

The shirt went back on because chunks of concrete kept hitting my chest.



End of day two. Mr. Mike said I have broken and stacked over a ton of concrete by myself in two afternoons.

Enough! For today anyways. Now Mr. Mike is going to use the loader and put it in the dump truck when he has a free afternoon.
Next step, My yard!



  1. Go Darian, Go. Your doing a great job. 8-D
    It will all be worth it in the end.

  2. That's an impressive pile of concrete chunks!
    Impressive pair of biceps, too! :-)

    You've changed a lot since the last time I saw you--has it been five years? Or more? Of course I've changed, too! Unfortunately! :-(

    When you get that project finished let me know. I'd like to come up to see it!

  3. You are making muscles that the other guys won't have .
    Ooohh I can see the girls now , they love muscle men. I hope you get this project finished when you get that home.I know you are looking forward to it. Be proud of your self. You deserve it .
