The tractor came back. We had to fix the leaky wall in our basement, and now that done, we have to do something with all that dirt we took out. Because what we took out doesn't even come close to fitting back into the hole from which it was removed! Scott again comes to our rescue-his mom needs new dirt.

Got it?

Maybe now that she has this under her belt she should expand her job search to the construction fields... Well, maybe not...
