Default Home sweet home -- Yeah, right

Thought I would sneak this in under the old topic, as the new isn't up yet.
Had to have a new septic system installed, and the contractor took until now to get to it. Fortunately the weather is holding and the ground isn't yet frozen. Guess I could title it "pouring money down a hole".

Happy Holidays everyone.

LOL! Yep, a lot of money going down a hole. Nothing like having to replace a septic tank (or tanks). Yuck!

Looks like my front yard a few months ago when I also had to dig it up to replace an old rusty sewer pipe. It's no fun folks.

Ah the joys of maintaining home sweet home.

And to think: I could have gotten a new Pentax 645D for about the same price.

Definitely an expensive hole in the ground. Good luck and hope they finish it before any bad weather causes delays.

Boonies? Yes, you could say that. We're so far out in the boonies we get last week's weather. On the other hand, I have to drive nearly 50 miles to find a real live working traffic light. I sometimes go to the nearest 'big' town to watch the traffic jam when all the businesses let out. It lasts up to half an hour sometimes. Ha-ha!
