Ya Load Sixteen Tons,

OK, so maybe it was only one ton, but it's still a lot of frickin' concrete to mix and pour by hand. Pictures to come.

Oh, oh, you're pulling a Perry! How many bags? I swear we'll never to that again but who knows what project just may come up? Looking good and much easier to keep picked up.

Heh. Didn't think about the pupster. A cat stumbled around on the smaller section a bit though.

It was 25 80# bags and I could've used about 3 or 4 more. I still need one more to finish filling the holes in the gazebo base.

I was able to mix them 2 bags at a time. It wnet pretty well. Although after finishing the first section at about 1300 I had to wait until 1830 to do the next section. It was 101 back there according to the weather station.

Working cement is terrible work at all times but in the heat it is downright brutal. Puppy's Pop and his sometime helper used 50 bags for the horseshoe pits but the absolute worst scenario was when the truck brought the cement for the "patio" and it wasn't wet enough to spread easily on one of the hottest days of the year! No more cement!!!
