Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

excuse me class while I slap the snap out of this computer...
now, that's better.  As I was saying.  Here is the vibrating sheep's foot.
I see where the name comes from, don't you?  See right there?  It looks like a sheep's foot while it is vibrating. You know, when the sheep's foot vibrates, it looks like this. This machine is also big, so I think I would call it a vibrating rhino's foot, or a vibrating dino's foot,  because it comes along and POUNDS that silly dirt into a hard solid surface upon which to deposit the clay !
Here is Ranch Hand #1 petting the sheep's foot before it starts vibrating.   And here is the pounded driveway awaiting the arrival of 7, yes count em, 7 truckloads of miry clay. Yes , like that stuff in the Bible that you want to be rescued from down in the pit.  Anyway, the truck comes loaded with clay, dumps the clay, spreads the clay and the sheep's foot pounds the clay into a nice solid bed for the rocks to lay on.  In our afternoon session we will discuss the Rocks and see how they are layed down on the smooth clay to form a driveway.  Let's all take a coffee break.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
