1832 Stone-Arch Culvert Uncovered On Nr In Richmond, In


Recommended Posts

Responses in this conversation from about 3:00 PM Monday may seem terse to the point of being rude but the fellow making them was really quite friendly, especially considering that he was troweling mortar as we spoke.


ME: Got an old bridge in there?


HE: Not a bridge. An old box culvert. It's all covered up.


ME: That didn't take long.


HE: Longer than we liked.


ME: A couple of days?


HE: We've been working on this about two months.


ME: Oh. Didn't know that. Thanks.


He: You're welcome.


As I wrote this out, I think I sound like the rude one. I probably should have said sorry as well as thanks. This has been a reminder that reading things on the internet doesn't make them real-time.
