    Good morning everyone. Interesting article.
    So glad ALR checked in. Mary also is back, great week for the blog.
    Staff’s past couple of weeks sound hair-raising. Hugs to her and Mr. Fireslippers.
    Hard to believe that July has only 3 days left. Have a great day.

    Good morning, friends! I thought that article was very interesting and the excerpts from the different books made me want to go back and read them all!

    Poor Staff and Mr Staff. And how sad for Vern. Yes, losing a life partner is a very hard adjustment to make. Hope they get water back soon.

    That is an interesting blog. I’m wondering about the picture. Is that supposed to be Chet?

    Good morning all.

    I really enjoyed reading today’s blog post. Like BooBear, I want to go back and read all the C&B books again!

    Right now, I am reading “The Dry” by Jane Harper. Very good.

    I am laughing at Rio’s post of 10:25am.

    Hope Staff and Mr. Fireslippers get their water back soon. Grizz and I have gone a day or two without water, and it is not fun. I can’t imagine spending two weeks without H2O! Yeep! So sorry to hear about Vern’s wife.

    Good day to all!

    To be precise Rose, We did have water. We just had to go 20 miles to fetch it and pay 7.50 for a 5 gallon jug. Mr. Fireslippers objected to paying that amount and so would go about a 30 minute drive to a neighboring town where he scouted out a open faucet in the town park. He would refill the jugs there for free and bring them home. Several times we had to go into Fargo for other reasons and took our jugs to Natural Grocers who sell the water for about 49 cents a gallon. What a savings!

    Now with the pump fixed we can put ice cream pails in the tub and refill them without leaving the house. The Mister goes down into the cellar and turns the water on to the house. I stand by the tub with the pails and fill them up trying not to spill them. It is ever so exciting. When the pails are all full I go out of the bathroom and to the top of the stairs and yell very loudly “OK”. Mr Staff then turns off the water.

    The toilets have string tying up the flapper-doodle that brings water up from the (turned off) pump into the toilet so we don’t have to fuss with it. Then we pour water from the ice cream pails into the backof the toilet whenever we flush.

    As for the good news there is a plumber here right now and he has the faucet we need. However I think the round drain thingy that is supposed to cover the large drain hole no longer fits with the new faucet. We haven’t been told that yet but the nice young man has gone out to his truck several times to get some “parts” and I peeked at the tub. The outlet drain hole is not covered.

    Is it possible we had a paw in the pup tent massacre of 2018? We can not recall at this time. (Hat tip to our legal counsel).

    Staff: We can blur a vat o’ water to you and still make it back to Rio’s backyard for Mary’s retirement party tomorrow.

    More to Staff: Authorities on This Side of the Bridge would like us to confirm that Vern’s wife was welcomed and was Restored to Prime.

    No offense to Mr Fireslippers, but perhaps we should dissuade him fire and plumbing oversight. Would the Giant be available?
