Yesterday.....after the hill....you know from the previous post, I decided to mow. First I mowed my mother's yard, then mine. I was on a roll. The day was sunny, cool and just a joy to behold. The picture you are viewing is of the "new" faucet and that last little bit of mowing that I had to do. All I had to do was mow in that corner but suddenly the mower lunged forward straight into the faucet............water went everywhere. Calmly, I turned off the main waterline and tried to think of what to do. Did I mention that I'd not married, my dad died a long time ago, my cousin across the field had a heart attack is would be unable to help me...... What to do? After severl panic filled minutes...I went to Lowe's (a 30minute trip) asked for help and a very nice plumming person fixed me up. I went home & just as I was unloading my "stuff," another cousin was driving by. Of course I flagged him down, explained what happened..leaving out the lunging mower & he took pity on me and fixed it.
The moral of this story..........never try to do that last little bit.....leave it for another day!
