For months Jason had been baiting me,
but things were too hectic to settle down.
The larger corner section had been claimed the month before.
This was like a Wild West land grab,
They've had a lot of experience moving chit around!
Fortunately it was mainly a lack of organization,
a relatively small amount of stuff,
strewn over a big area.
We'd show him who got the best deal!
At the time this was a big deal!
The drawback was the dirt floor.
A fine silty dust that got everywhere.
sourced from the local landfill.
Full of palm frond casings and junk.
The good stuff is ground up wood.
Separate free wood,
grind it to various particle sizes,
and sell it for $50 a bucketful.
We settled for the plain jane.
We spread chips everywhere.
Now projects could get resumed...
the wood chips moved as well,
mixing into the silty dirt.
Shoes and socks could not stay clean!
Pavers and bricks were transferred
from our house to the shop.
The kids again pulled through.
That was a blazing day!
