Digging deep

One of the more physical jobs for a plumber is laying down drainage. At times we can be in a hole that is deeper than we are tall shoveling dirt and rocks onto a pile that gets just as big.  Sometimes its made worse by tree roots, clay soil or rubble. At other times we dig through things that are not so desirable.

This is the kind of job that is made easier with help but yesterday I was on my own. I had spent a few hours digging and laying an absorption pit. With this friendly fellow watching intently.

As the day was finishing I began to back fill the trenches and my furry friend got up and started to help. He wasn't very useful but his enthusiasm made me laugh.
