Still Haulin' Ass

The Great Wall has been expanded by 4 more rows.We're getting there! w00t!!!

As you can see,we've started piling up the dirt.Started around the plumeria.You might notice,the infamous Rhode Island rock has been included in the landscaping plan.This is the rock Dad got when we we're living in Newport(back in 1971/72),and chiseled Michael's name and the year into it.He and Mom brought it down with them,and I brought it over here when we moved Dad out of the house in St.Pete.
The new steps going down to the back of the yard.Pardon the temporary steps.They will be replaced with something more permanent at a later(much later!)date.
While digging old plants up,this is what I found.A piece/chunk of green glass.A few years back I found a chunk of purple glass about the same size.We don't know if it's/they're from the old days when there were moon-shiners out here,or what.We do know they have found an old still at the top of the hill.Who knows?...................

Sooooo,this is what we accomplished today.We will be taking a break from this for awhile.'Til we get back from vacation.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Interesting piece of glass, good luck finding out it's history.
