June 19th-Home Again...Jiggity Jog

Drove from Macon, Ga to home. Gas prices range from $4.19 to $3.86.
We picked up Dixie from the Vet and came on home. There was a huge shovel poking out from behind our canal hedge! Oh My!

It is huge and they are dredging the canal.

Two guys work it. One to scoop and dump the sand/sludge on the banks. The other guy sits on a chair and when the barge needs to be moved, the bucket lifts up the big anchor poles high enough that the chair guys puts a pin through it.

Then the operator uses the bucket to pull the barge along, then reset the anchor poles and start scooping in another patch.

Everyone's sprinkler stuff in the canal is broken. We saved the end filter thing. The canal water is really muddy.
