When I was 11 years old, my father decided he needed a new wall on the front of his shop. It would be a big wall, roughly 12 ft high by 20 ft long. The old wall was crumbling and he was sick of looking at it. But rather than hire a contractor or construction company, he thought it would be a good project for my younger brother, Harry and me that you did the demolition. I remember looking at the gaping hole in excruciating disbelief. I was utterly saddened that there would never be a wall there ever again every day. For nearly a year. My brother and I would go to my father's shop after school to work on that wall. We did everything ourselves. We dug the footing, mixed the motor and carried the buckets. I still remember the formula. Two part cement, one part san, one part lime. Harry was in charge of the hose. We'd mix the pile with shovels out on the sidewalk and then fill two gallons buckets and lay our separate bricks. We did it without any rear or wood forms. Just one of those levels with a water bubble in the middle. If you know anything about construction, you know, this is a loony *** way to do this if we can keep it real. This is chain gang kind of labor today. We would, we would just call child protective services. This is a job so tedious and unnecessarily long that what ended up taking two kids most of a year would have only taken a team of grown men a couple of days at most.
