Jimmy the Gravel Guy

Abby and I recently contracted to have a new shed installed here on the patch, to store both her 1986 Toyota MR-2, which is a “someday” project, and the contents of a shed on the propriety formerly known as Milligan Manor, which now belongs to the nice new neighbors named Nipps.

Before the shed can go in, it needs a foundation, so we contracted with Jimmy the Gravel Guy. While he was at it, we decided, could he re-gravel the driveway? Today he got started, and the driveway was first on the list. The real bonus is that he’s using a red granite gravel from a quarry near Tishomingo, a gravel that looks more organic, and is less inclined to produce dust.

The first of two loads of granite gravel material sits on our 100-yard-long driveway this morning before being spread and packed by Jimmy the Gravel Guy.

  1. “… and less inclined to produce dust…”

    O, the dust in Oklahoma. We don’t miss that much. :-)

    There were a couple of years during which I drove more miles on unpaved roads than on paved roads.

    Good luck with the driveway, shed, etc.
