So this afternoon found me muddin’ again. The waterline to the house had a slight leak, and it wasn’t going to magically repair itself! Between rain showers, I rolled up my – jeans (!) and went to work on the line! The line runs from the public road along the edge of the shrimp pond, across the drive and into the yard. It’s a flexible one-inch black tube that the municipality rolled out, hooked up, and left on top of the ground. Later I buried the hose a spade deep — everywhere except where it ‘swagged’ along the edge of the shrimp pond.
I opened the water valve to confirm where the leak was, marked the spot, turned off the water, and made an easy repair. With my feet in the pond, I noted the almost-perfect temperature of the water. “Nice enough for swimming,” I thought.
And then I remembered an incident that happened a few weeks ago. I smiled, “How could I have forgotten that?! Those photos are perfect for ‘Unique!”
I hope you enjoyed another example of “Unique.”
