Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

About three weeks ago we broke three sprinkler heads on our yard. I have been going to fix them ever since but have been on fires and stuff until the stores were closed about every night.

This morning I got up and dug out the heads and took them off - then I took them to the store so I could get the exact same size and type---didn't work---they don't have the kind of heads I have and the ones they do have are shorter. So I had to raise the pipe in the yard just a little over a half inch so that the new head would clear the grass when it was watering the yard. OOOOHHHHH that was fun---but I am glad now that we have really good heads on the line - guess the next thing that will go out is the line itself. I kind of wish that would happen then I could revamp the yard a bunch. The way it is everything has to be done within the current sprinkler system or make a piece meal modification to it. We really don't know where all the lines go so piecemeal modifications will get us in trouble pretty quick. Guess I'll just live with it for a while.

At least you're getting some projects completed. It always feels good to get work around the house and yard done!
