    Shovled six ton of stone today, and I'm worn out.

    Well...I didn't actually shovel the stone myself. I watched
    my brother do it. I WOULD of had to help, but I'm way ahead
    of him.

    I hid all the other shovels.

    Good thing too, because it took him all day. The mere thought
    of me having to actually work all day....This Spook isn't built to
    shovel stone.

    But I did watch him through the window. Even called him on the
    cellphone to point out a few spots I thought he went a little light
    on. I remember my grandaddy saying, any job worth doing is
    worth doing well...But I think it annoyed my brother, my calling him
    like that. I was just trying to help.

    But I did drive the truck. Well...not really. But I DID offer too. I did
    drive his car today. I went to lunch. Spooks gotta eat...

    Even that seemed to annoy my brother. But he never said anything
    about him being hungry. I mean, do I look like I'm psychic or

    Anyway, I'm pretty tired. May take a day or two for me to rest back
    up. I can't afford to be worn out now.

    Plowing is coming right up, another month or so. Gonna be a big
    job this year.

    Been telling my wife how I wanted it plowed this year. Even drew her
    a picture.

    But I don't think she listens to me...

    Spook...all wore out

    All that supervising and planning will wear a guy out.

    They never appreciate your efforts, do they.
