Bustin’ Concrete

Don’t think we didn’t see it. When we told y’all we were gonna go after our front walk with a sledgehammer, don’t think we didn’t hear you snickering and muttering “Pfft, yeah, right, those two with a sledgehammer…” We know all about the various bets going around…what portion of the body would be seriously injured first and who it belongs to, etc. You guys were all scoffitty scoff scoff, the “nattering nabobs of negativism”, as former Vice President Spiro T. Agnew eloquently put it.

Well, naysayers, let’s hear you say nay to this:




That’s just the two of us (yes, I did some too!) in forty minutes. Unfortunately, it was still too damn hot to go much further, but this was mainly Proof of Concept.

Will we tear out our front walk with just a sledgehammer? Hells yes!

    That’s an impressive display of sheer physical power! Umm, but on behalf of my spouse, do I see a lack of eye protection? Tsk, tsk.

    What are you talking about, Anne? There’s no fireworks involved!

    Seriously, our experiment demonstrated a definite need for both goggles and gloves. Long pants wouldn’t suck either, since little sharp cement chips were flying.

    I would goto an equipment rental store and rent an air compressor and an air chisel before attempting that! Think of what you would save in nerve damage and doctor bills. Work Smarter Not Harder!
