It makes you think


We had problems with our water supply over the weekend. A burst water main meant we had reduced pressure downstairs and no water upstairs. We fared better than our neighbours across the street because they had no supply at all. It made me think of those who don't have the luxury of water on tap at any time.
We have it very easy in this country!

I always said you had nothing upstairs

I once had the water and the electricity go out at the same time. I felt like a pioneer. Actually, it was sort of fun. I put on the fireplace and relaxed. :-)

America is a spoiled nation. I think everyone should spend one month serving the people in a third world country and get some perspective.

But that's just me...

Hope your water was fixed.

I suggested to Mrs Pluto that I would grow a beard and so save water by not shaving. She gave me one of "those looks" and I decided that it was not one of my better ideas.

Everything is back to normal, or as near normal as it gets in our house.
