My friend, Sarah Hendrix, and her two boys (and one of their friends) joined Dad and I for a wonderful Fall day
at Brushyland. And we managed to completely replaced the root-clogged sewer pipe behind The Outhouse. It's amazing
what a few teenage boys can get accomplished! Watching them brought back memories of Jason and I when we were their
age and running around on that land back in the late 70's. Lot's of energy!

That's our friend, Richard Dowd, taking his turn at hand-digging the hole for the tank.
Fixin' to bury our new sewer pipe. The picture on the right is of me when I noticed that we bought the wrong couplers.
A quick trip to an Athens hardware store solved our problem.
The boys did a lot of work (which we much appreciated!) but as you can see they also got to have some fun too!
