At one time there were six men involved – only Scott seemed prepared to take a headlong plunge into the ready mix as he waded about on an uneven surface with the concrete lapping about near the top of his wellies. I thought the others were waiting to rush to his rescue should he falter, but when asked what they would do if he fell in, they replied, without hesitation, – “Laugh!”
