So, gardening.

"Dillo dirt" is a fine product of our local industry--Austin's refined sewer sludge and mulch combined together into a rich, dark compost. Great for refreshing lawns. Good stuff, reasonably inexpensive, and how very green of the city of Austin to turn sewer sludge into gardening material.

After devastating a large chunk of my lawn by digging holes, tromping all around, and getting clay all over the grass, I upended a few bags of Dillo Dirt I had around the area, by way of apology to the grass.

Out of one of them fell a five-pound wedge of concrete.

Beyond the very basic question of how and why, one must ask--WHAT do Austinites EAT?!?

Sakes!! I'm coming to Austin with some Stool Softener. I'll make a fortune selling it there.

(And here I thought the stuck up rich oilmen down here were the ones who had bricks up their asses. Or was that their heads? Same thing, really...)

Well, it's no surprise that we have a rich supply of fertilizer in the area, between all the darn liberals and the lege' when it's in session. I still wasn't expecting concrete.

It's vegan and has plenty of fiber!

Definately in the "roughage" family, yes :)

It is a big lump of solidified tofu.

I start every day with a nice bowl of rebar. I'm on the Richard Kiel diet.
