Yea, I get it, and wise comments all

However, I plan to stay at it until I succumb naturally or otherwise

Like a buddy of mine was saying to me a couple years ago, he was talking about his grandfather, 92 years old who had died.

I asked if it was cancer

He said, "No, he fell off the roof of his barn while he was shingling it."

You get one turn at this life, might as well and take a swing at it and keep swinging.

As I started reading it...

I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather.
Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in the car...

Here is a bit more rock work. I have the tall wall stacked up to nearly ground height now and progress on the far one

Then continued ganging up on the embankment. It's trick working with water already in the thing, but using the bucket as a depth gage I dig a shelf maybe one foot below the water and as wide as the bucket, then stack the first course of stones underwater, then slowly come upward.

Here is that short wall section stacked to the height of the levee. I later added another course of stones on top of that to cap the whole thing off and keep wheeled things from taking a plummet

Here is the far/tall wall getting larger

All of that rubble in front of the wall will get removed in time to create a clean break from water to wall

Rock wall looks good.

You keep saying and taking pictures of all the rocks, but the pile in the background brings it into perspective. You have a lot of big rocks. And conveniently flat wall building type to boot.

I'm thinking besides the grass carp you could stock some smallmouth, submerge one of those pesky tree stumps that tried to kill you and have some nice cover to flip spoons at. Just sayin. Those stones couldn't have been quarried any nicer sir, really good work there.

I am going to add the grass carp, sort of like buying a lawn mower.

But as for fish, I am undecided. Bass/bluegill and a couple of cats would make sense, but I would like to do Koi. they are fun to look at, would add a cool factor to the place, and they do breed...(Read: Could sell their youngins)

Koi would be very cool, potentially bring $$ in, but bluegill and smallmouth and catfish can be eaten, and breed. just adding to the self-sustainability of the place.

To bad you don't have one deep enough not to freeze. Trout would be sweet if there was enough flow to keep the water cool in summer.
