Grunt Work

3.8 Peagravel.JPG

Yesterday I laid down 10 cubic yards of gravel in our driveway. Each cubic yard weighs in at a little over 2,800 lbs., which means I shoveled, raked, and smoothed 28,000 frigging pounds of rock. I slept like the dead, but waking up was painful, as every single muscle in my body was telling me that 49-year-old men shouldn’t be moving 28,000 lbs. of gravel.
