Pond Making 101

start with a nice hillside containing one moss filled pond

add one trackhoe, one bulldozer and one very excited boy.........

repeatedly refuse to let the boy drive the above listed heavy equipment

kill a few trees

destroy the dam

drain the pond of all water, scum and muck

put on hipwaders and scour drained pond bottom for snapping turtles

let the overgrown boys have fun pushing dirt around for a few days

enjoy the finished product

begin praying for some serious rainfall to fill the newly formed pond

the end


  1. Wow! I'll get right on this! My husband would be ALL about heavy equipment and pushing dirt around...what fun! Enjoy your pond :)

  2. I think you're getting your wish with the heavy rainfall. However, your wish is ruining my wish of going to Fair St. Louis tonight!!!
