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.
