gotta replace about 90 feet of 4" sewer pipe. I'm gonna abandon the old pipe and take a straight shot past it (it has one 45 degree crook near where it hits the city main)

You're leaving an abandoned line into the main?

not into the main...the new one will need to use the same connection. The old clay pope will be truly abandoned...tree roots and all

When I was about seven years old I helped my father relay a leach field. I loved it. At the end of the day I smelled awful, but I had fun.

We might be doing something similar in the future.....but we'll probably pull the whole lot out.

the two runs will be about 8 or 9 feet apart...no point in digging two trenches

just think about those cold, rainy nights and strange noises in the bushes. Having to leave a warm bed and return cold and damp...and that is just when SWMBO needs for you to walk out in the dark with her and stand outside in the rain while she tends to the business at hand (remember, she will plant her freezing feet on you and expect you to put up with it)

And yet they sired much larger families in those days!

I guess that was the result of being up half the night attempting to warm up from the midnight foray... ;)

I've actually been there...I married a REAL country girl...wood burning cook stove and all...she used to milk our cow while sitting on a one legged stool (her head shoved into bossie's flank served as the other legs)

that would be "thunder jug"...and NO cause I know who'd have to empty and clean the thing

(I should have said that was the centerpiece on our table)

A one-legged-stool?

Is that a typo? Or is it something I've never heard of?

nope...2X4 with a piece of shelving nailed to one end...sit on that and keep your head against the cow and you have a 5 legged stool...plus your own two legs

My brother-in-law, who's a dairy farmer, used them all the time before the farm was really automated. It's truly a one-legged stool that's strapped to the farmer with a harness. This way, he can go from cow to cow, standing up or sitting down without having to drag a stool with him.
