They shut off the water again, this time with no warning.
I was out mowing the lawn but Mama was in the shower when they shut it off...she was madder than a wet hen! "I'm going to call them!" She said.
She was walking around in just a towel ranting, "Did you know about this?"  No, honey.

If she's willing to raise some hell if a problem comes up, I'm happy to let her handle it.

I get pissed off dealing with people like this.

The City Water & Sewer Dept. hung another message on the front door.
No water between 7:30 and 11:00 this morning.
 
The wife left me a note last night...She's so pissed.  Our water is a little less than crystal clear, she wants the city to buy us some bottled water.
 
I got the dishes done and we've both had our showers, I put a pan of water in the sink so we can wash our hands.

I dunno.

Water is pretty cheap.

Just head down to the grocery store and pick up a 5 gallon bottle.

I bought 2 gallons at .99 each. That should last us a couple days.

I'm on this new kick to curb my appetite in the morning, I have 2 or 3 cans of V8.
It's good for me and it helps hold me over until I eat some lunch.

I should probably try to do something like that.

Never could take the taste of that stuff, though.

Maybe a little black pepper and Tobasco sauce might help.

LOL

Oh my!!
Insert 'Captain Sulu' if you must! Embarrassed

Mama bought some annuals. I ran the irrigation this morning and found several problems I will need to address.  We have been getting a fair amount of rain but when I mowed the back yard yesterday I could tell it was dry. The maples are so big the canopy alone stops some rain from getting to the lawn.
Then the root systems suck the ground dry of moisture and nutrients.

I tried to be courteous this morning and waited until after 9:00 to mow the lawn. The grass is starting to look healthy again.
The Cottonwood trees are shedding something awful, breath through your nose! Ack!  It's warm too. Showing 80 on the back porch.

Just got back from the grocery store.

Needed a couple of 2 liter bottles of my favorite caffeine free diet cola.

The store is one mile from my house. Rather than crank up the car and drive up there, I decided to walk. I need the exercise and I need to get my blood pressure under control anyway.

The walk up there was one thing, but the walk back with two 2 liter bottles of soda in a back pack is a bit tougher. Especially at my age.

But I made it and I feel good too.

Now to check my BP in few minutes after I rest up a bit.

It's actually been a little on the cool side this morning.

Cloudy with a slight breeze.

Probably be raining in a little while.

Good morning for a walk.
