Just as we are hurrying to get all the last-minute Christmas shopping done…holiday meals planned…and last minute details finished…we noticed a few days ago that there was an unusual amount of water on top of the road in front of our house. “Wild Bill” went out to look closer and found that we had a water leak under the paved county road.
After getting the necessary permits “Wild Bill” began the labor intensive job of tearing up the asphalt to get to the water pipe.
Not a fun job and rather over whelming to start this project now with freezing temps…but we needed water and we had to stop the leak.
This was rather serious folks…
As in trenches and “detours”…our poor dogs trying to do their job…barked and growled at every car that drove off the pavement to go through the detour…try to sleep at night…and no you do not.
Ask “Miss Melody”…she did not get any sleep either with the barking dog issue and “Patio Horse” was still staring at her too”.
And there is one of the culprits…and she is such a good girl..we love our Kiah…good good girl she is:)
Yes “Kiah my Kiah…you are a good girl!”
“Ok guys…what do you think?”
Since we fixed the leak of a 50-year-old pipe under the road it only made sense to fix the pipe all the way to the well…about 200′…to replace all the old pipe with new pipe….so Wild Bill dug and dug. Dasher is the dog you see with Wild Bill…Dasher was born this time of year…perfect name huh?
The road is almost back to normal…the trench is filled with gravel…three days later all is well once again in “Juniper Canyon” and we have water in the house at last!
“Uh Dad….what do you think?” My two men…brings back memories of “Wild Bill” with my Dad.
Today we decorated our tree and got back to Christmas:)
And “Minnie Mouse said all is good:)”
This is country living folks…we is country folks…and we live it:)
