the pool man cometh...

He drew a us a nice picture of the pool. Then he left. Then he came back. Then he left again to rescue the guy with the big shovel and the dump truck who was lost somewhere (but close by)...

The guy with the big shovel finally showed up -- 2 hours later than expected. He squeezed that big machine between the house and garage -- with about a quarter of an inch to spare!

He dug a hole and made big piles of dirt around the yard. It was just amazing to watch this huge machine as it spun pirouettes and gracefully scooped buckets of dirt.

Then he left, with the big shovel machine -- to rescue his dump truck that got stuck in the mud while he was dumping a load of dirt (somewhere close by)... At this writing, he hasn't returned. The truck was stuck in the mud up to its axles. He did mention to Rick that he would most likely not finish today.

After being overcast and dreary most of the day the sun has finally popped through the clouds. It has been a day of waiting and unexpected delays -- exactly how I thought it would be.

To be continued...
