Well, I’ve been involved for the last few days in a dig. A different kind of dig. In my backyard. My whole yard is weeds and I’ve been removing them one at a time. I’ve been at it for an average of 5 hours a day for the last 4 days. I’m not quite done. I don’t really expect to learn more about any particular civilization except that obviously my condo corporation hasn’t been paying for spraying for the past several years, mine not being the only lawn in this condition. And if all the common areas aren’t sprayed soon, all my work will have been in vain. However, speaking of digging to learn about civilizations, I found a pair of tweezers in the yard. I’ve heard of people who have a manicured lawn. You don’t suppose . . .?
Naah, probably not! If the rain holds off tomorrow, though, I might get the last of the weeds out, grass seed down, and a bit of topsoil over it all. Wish me luck!
