That was a lot of
sweat ..... strain
and WAY more than
we could do with shovels,
or our 42 Ford tractor .... Eldon's pride and joy.
The tractor almost got stuck .....
he dug one last shovel full then tried to back out of the
increasingly lengthy hole.
Approaching the mid-point of the
desired 30 feet long pond
the tractor refused to back out with
that one-more- bucket full of dirt.
Eldon got off the tractor
climbed out of the hole
and looked at the ravaged landscape
"What have I done!"
He climbed back into the hole,
fired up Big Red
and with the expertise of
a BIG RIG TRUCKER
he coaxed that beligerrant
and weary tractor backwards out of the hole.
Then he called a friend with a back hoe to finish the job.
If you don't have the right tools for the job
GET BIGGER TOOLS!
Fill the hole in the ground with water,
add a waterfall,
build a bridge,
put in plants and
rocks around the pond
and fish ......
add fish to the crystal clear water.
ONE FISH ...........TWO FISH.....THREE FISH
TWO DOZEN FISH
THE FIRST THREE YEARS!
And flowers ....
did I say
all around the pond ....?
and abundant water plants.
and the pond
goldfish slumber like bears hibernating
through the long cold freeze of winter.
They turn into
little Golden Popsicles.
Immersed water pump
keeps pumping away,
spilling over the rocks
frozen water sculpture.
The steady stream of water pumped from
the deepest part of the pond
tunnels through the ice and snow
aerating the "golden popsicles' " frigid home.
And all is at rest.
