More Dirt?

Just when I think we are done with having piles of dirt in our driveway, my husband sees a sign that states "Free Dirt" stuck into a huge pile of soil and his eyes begin to glaze over with dreams of adding on to our backyard yet again.  We live on a bluff and with each rainy season we seem to lose an inch or two of our yard to tiny avalanches.  My husband loves the idea of replacing what Mother Nature has relocated but, after the huge undertaking last summer, he would appreciate some big machinery rather than just a wheel barrow and some shovels.

Do we really need to add more dirt to our backyard to help brace our space?  I’m not entirely sure.  This could just be an elaborate ploy by Rob to get my blessing for him to play in the dirt with the boys.  (The "boys” in this case being the neighbors who are also looking for an excuse to play in the dirt ;->).  One thing is for sure, if such large amounts of dirt are going to be moved again we need machinery, like JCB backhoes.  The lifting and moving of dirt may be good exercise but I bet driving machinery is more fun.
