i don't like this one...but, i promised myself i'd post good and bad.
it had burst.
that big earthen damn dam built back in 1943 by my great granddad who said he had learned the skill working for the wpa in the depression.
he must have learned it well, since it held up 60 someodd years before it popped like a water balloon, sweeping up everything we owned before the swath of water pouring out of the crack.
the last i saw great granddad, his casket was surfing the crest of that wave, flying forward into the cold spring day.
