Boys busting bulk bags

.
Remember the family across the street? The ones who brought in bales of straw, who later began making bricks of mud?
(Can you tell B is the letter of the day for ABC Wednesday?)

Now they brought a truckload of bales!
Is that the right English word? In Hebrew we call them balot.
The driver worked the hydraulics while young neighbor boy hooked the chains to the bale handles.
Big brother started bustin' those bulk bags with a knife!

Slit and run!

Oi, be careful, boys!

Those bags can hold 1500 kg.

Beginning to rake the piles flat was the last stage for that evening.
Who knows what will be next??

You certainly have me intrigued, or should I say Bewildered and Bemused? I checked out the bales and bricks posts, and I still don't know what they're doing:)

Oh, how interesting! That's the 'boys' making bricks of mud and straw? Dusty work! They'll need plenty to drink. ;)

Q said...

So interesting.
Perhaps by letter M they will be all finished and we will see what they built!

Such an interesting process! And great photos. Did you ask them what you were documenting? Did they find it odd that you were photographing? Keep us posted! Blogs are more interesting than TV!

Very cool. I have a friend in Arizona, USA who is making adobe's for his new house using mud, straw, and the sun's baking heat.

Also, I've seen the same type bags used in cryogenic natural gas processing plants, but they held molecular sieve material.

Interesting.
