What's exciting in a small town? Digging a hole...

Across the street from the parish, the village is doing some work on Nine Mile Creek.

The retaining walls are being redone, a concrete basin is being poured, and then a "cap" will be put over it, followed by soil and grass. The mayor, who was watching the guys work when I walked up, explained that the existing wall is deteriorating, and "if it were to fail, we'd lose Main Street and have to shut it all down."

The area where the yellow bulldozer (is that what it's called?) will actually become a small park down the road, after all this is complete.

And -- ha! -- I have a scoop on the Fish Report!

You can stage "Phantom of the Opera" for the community theatre.

It's an excavator.

It will be an underground watercourse like the sewers of Paris in the play. I love that play and think it would be fun to sing it in a tunnel like that one.

Farther,
It looks as if it is quite an undertaking!
