  1. Well, Well, Well

    May 10, 2012 by myeye

    Dammit!  I share a well with three (and potentially a fourth) neighbor.  Our water pressure has been quite low recently.  Today I asked the well company in Peralta to come out and take a look.  The well technician (is that what they are called?) says we need a new pump, motor, and control panel.  That will cost between $3,000 and $3,500.  Since I have to wrestle with my three existing neighbors to get them to pay their share of the electric bill for the well (about $50/month), what do you think they’ll say when I ask them to cough up $800 each?  I’ve asked the well company for an estimate to have my own well dug.  It would certainly reduce the aggravation.  There are always a few complications in life . . .

  2. Photos From National Herding Trials

    The action photographers (Perry) were great.  I have a whole disk of photos of Chase herding sheep.  I was also supposed to have Chase herding ducks, but instead I have Lowri — whoops!  His daughter certainly does look like him.

    I love the expression in this photo

    Waiting for more instruction
