We may have the makings of a John Henry-esque, man-versus-machine contest brewing at one of our properties.
Dirty Dave and I were inspecting a property in the burbs, and found this series of modified concrete drainage pipes that have been turned into planters. Each weighs several hundred pounds, and moving them by hand is not an option. So what to do?
How about a contest? We thought it might be interesting to see which method ends up being more efficient: removing the planters with a Bobcat, or smashing them with a sledgehammer and removing them by hand? We’d like to do a little competition, maybe see which method takes longer to dispose of four planters. Any bets on which’ll be the better method?
At the same property, this weathered birdhouse has also fallen into foreclosure. We will be providing no property-preservation services to this house. The occupants were not around for comment. Perhaps they were busy on line, tweeting about their plight?
