I wish my pond only took that long to install! :-)

I saw the hole for the pond yesterday.  It's huge!  The front end loader
was still there.  The liner was laid and the water hoses turned on full
blast.  I think all that will remain for the show is putting on the
coping, making a water fall, and cleaning up.
