When Jim Kennedy uses his big backhoe, a crowd usually gathers. He's an artist, you see.
At Bud McFarland's place the other day, he was there to install Bud's new septic tank. This was to be a massive septic tank. Now and then Jim would just do something to show off his skill. At one point, when Jim's backhoe cut through a buried tree root, there was about a foot-long section of root lying alone at the bottom of the hole.
"Hey Jim," Bud yelled at Jim, good-naturedly, "firewood!"
