This is what is at the end of our driveway!

It has now been two weeks as the town keeps digging up the water system. Right in front of our house seems to be the holdup as it has been dug up 3 times now. Today they are working in the rain. Must be very unpleasant for the workers. In the meantime we are still getting water to our house via the neighbor's using 300 feet of garden hose.

And our garage is cut off from the street. Can't get the car out.

Panama Canal? Suez Canal?

It certainly appears like they are digging a canal up 5th Street East in our town. This is what our house looks like from the street!!!

New water pipes are being installed for the
residents of 5th Street.

You can see our house in the background again. Crews worked all day Sunday to dig this trench. We are without water, and have been since Saturday. Robbie, the town foreman and good friend of ours, tells us we should be reconnected to the town water supply by Thursday. In the meantime, we have strung garden hoses to the neighbour's house across the back alley.

This is what we see from our front step.

Here's to the Horses, that Pull the Budweiser!!!

We welcomed our son home to Eatonia for the weekend. He is now employed by Labatts, the distributer of Budweiser. His arrival in the Budweiser Beer Wagon caused quite a stir in our little town. Lots of people stopping by and enquiring "got any free beer" or "Do you have any Neon Beer signs to give away"? Can't wait to hear what the word on the street is.
