Getting the pump put into our new well . . . by children?

I must really be getting old!

I went outside to watch the men working and the men looked like kids to me! Turns out the one on the left is 21 and the one on the right is 26. Both perfectly capable experienced workers!

The one on the left has been working with his dad since he was eight, learning the trade, and totally knows what he’s doing. I’m very happy to be getting this done so we can have enough water again.

We have barely had enough for drinking lately, towards the end of this hot dry summer. Laundry mats and stacked up dirty dishes have been the norm for the past few weeks. Hallelujah for running water.

    One of those things we tend to take for granted — until the well runs dry!

      That’s for sure! Water is life and without it we miss it almost immediately. Luckily I was sort of used to being super careful with my water from my months on the mountain where, other than the water we caught in rain barrels, we had to carry our own water in. We would go to the lake every afternoon to swim and rinse off the sweat from the days work.
