We also would have had the basement hole finished but Sunday we ran into a rock literally, a really big rock!
There is also a smaller one close to where Jim is standing, but it won't take long to remove that oneSo it looks like we have to fork out the money this weekend and rent an air compressor and Jack hammer to take the tops off. We borrowed a small jack hammer from Jim's brother, but it's to small for the job, hoping it's not to expensive to rent come Friday. The glass is still half full at least we only need it for the weekend. (This may be the first hiccup, unfortunately, I'm sure it won't be the last).
Mom got a ride Sunday at church, after the revival we were having dinner in the basement and this is the only way I could get her there. On the way down she was not happy with me but she was more comfortable when using it on the way up and actually smiled.
Also in the photo is a friend of mine and a gentleman from church. They were sweet and walked up with Mom while I pulled the truck around the front of the building.
