Where is all the help ?

river rock for pond
pea gravel

Yesterday it was bill day & if you have kept up with my
bill day post you know it’s a all day thing with us, cause we
go to 2 different counties nowhere close together to pay bills.

Well everything was going as normal for us & yes it was HOT
up in the 90’s & we were doing our last bit of shopping for
the day & I wanted to check on the price for the gravel too.

We went to Mannard’s & checked to see if they had any, &
when I seen they did I asked how much it was & they told
me & when I heard how much I was thrilled at the price.

So I got me (20) bgs, 10 of each & you WOULD THINK you
could get some help with that kind of stuff but no- none
I’m 65 yrs old & pretty tough with doing things like this.

But yea ok, so 95 degrees & no 1 in sight & I loaded 20
bgs of gravel on 2 flat carts & pushed each 1 to the cash
out desk
& by the time I got there here comes the help.

I was so hot, hubby (77 yrs old) told me I was as red as
an apple when I got back with the 2nd cart of gravel &
I looked like I was fixing to pass out, well I would think
so after loading 20 bgs of gravel in less than 30 mins
with NO HELP wouldn’t you? but I did it by MYSELF.

Thank GOD I won’t be doing THAT any time soon again
cause there is no help to rely on these days with stuff
like that & it’s a damn shame things are like they are.

But here is the deal, when a 65 year old person can
out work a 45 year old person SOMETHING IS WRONG
cause after we took the gravel to where it needed to be
the person I’m doing the pond for, I had HIM unload it
& after he was done he comes off with I’m beat OMG!

He didn’t load 2 carts & push them as far as I had to
in 95+ heat so as far as help goes there is none these
days, So when you have to have help, bring it with you.

  1. Young people today and even the previous generation do not know what work is. You be careful though. I have worked very hard all my life in construction. I just turned 70 and my back gave out 4 months ago. I had to have surgery and probably another coming up. These old backs wear out and it is very painful when they do. God bless you.

    1. Thank You for your response, yea I know
      how the new generation is these days &
      it’s horrible how bad it is & just as sad too.

      I have had times when my back has
      went out on me & your so right it’s
      no fun when it does it hurts like hell.

      But I am careful about how I do things
      when it comes to picking up stuff the
      wrong way, thank you for your concern.
