What’s your best story about holes

My grandfather had a dirt business, with a GI BIll degree from Purdue in dirtology or something

He owned a bog in rural northeast Ohio, some diggers, a dozer, and a dump truck. He personally would dig up the bog, load his truck, and then bring it back to his 3-acre home in the middle of suburban Cleveland on a busy connector street, and dump mountains of premium top soil on his driveway where he would then have people drive by to ogle his dirt and ask for him to deliver some to their homes

So as a kid, I got to play on his giant piles of dirt, they seemed like 20 foot high piles back then but were probably about 8’-10’

…..anyway my best hole story is an anti-hole story I guess

    Piles are pretty good though, I lived at a place for a couple years as a kid where the snow plows would push all the snow on the street into one gigantic pile, and that was mad fun.

    When we moved, we moved to a place where after a short walk in the woods, you ended up in a place where they were just starting some construction and there were many very large dirt piles. That was also mad fun.

    Does it count as a hole if it's fully above ground and dug into a giant snow mound?

    I dug plenty of foxholes and never once found any foxes. I was lied to!

    One year my sailing club requested volunteers to widen the channel at the mouth of the marina to make it easier to launch without running around

    This entailed several hours of digging into the shingle at the bank of the channel and throwing it into the sea so that the tide would take it out

    It was basically digging an amphibious hole

    I used the time to rehearse my lines for A Midsummer Night's Dream, and I think the increased blood flow due to strenuous activity improved my retention, as I had all of Oberon's part ready by the end of the weekend

    We used to have a lab who was a chronic hole digger.

    We had this s lawn with a manzanita in the middle of it.

    One night, after feeding the horse, I walked back to the house across the lawn. When I passed the manzanita, the ground gave way and I ended up in a pit up to my waist.

    The dog had dug *under the tree* and created a pit trap on the other side.

    I always thought the comparisons between Love and Ono were unfair. Love was unconventional, sure, but she bought a raw emotion and pathos to her work that was noticeably lacking in Ono’s work.

    The recent storms in the UK have knocked down a bit of my fence, rotten fence post is the culprit

    In order to replace it I've had to dig a hole, then smash the concrete up with a new sledgehammer

    I feel very powerful. Like I've done a good day's work
