This is the time of year when I start thinking about planting stuff, transplanting stuff and ripping stuff out. It's yard season!

I like to get all the hard work done by early June so that I don't spend the whole summer sweating in the sun. I burn easily!

On Saturday we found a little divot in the lawn. I kind of pushed on it with my foot and my foot sank quickly. I grabbed a shovel and pushed the handle into ground and it sank several feet. I called my neighbor Fred over for a consultation.

He suggested I might have found a burrow of some sort or a sink hole. I thought sink holes only happened in Florida. This is not covered in my home improvement books.

I've poked around a little more and I think I've actually found some kind of exposed well or something. It looks like the hole has a brick mouth or something. Mysterious.

Guess what we'll be doing on Saturday? Excavating! For now, the hole is blocked off with a tomato cage.

Safety first. Now to solve the mystery of who pruned my hydrangeas.

Yikes! That's a little scary. Hope it's nothing too serious... but hey! It could end up being a portal into some cool world, like Land Of The Lost! Watch out for sleestaks!

BTW, I'm listening to this week's podcast RIGHT NOW! So, I made it before December. W00T!

There has to be a way to translate Deeps' eyerolls to podcast. I'll work on that. ;-)

If there are sleestaks down there I'll let you know!

I'm hoping that there aren't any critters. Deeps is getting a little skittish about removing any dead things.

Wow! I hope you don't end up in John Malkovich's head. Though that might be fun for a short time.
