Mark had plans to replenish the veggie patch with new seedlings last week, but alas, the irrigation pump in the dam broke down. No rest for the wicked, or for those who live in the countryside!
So first we, I mean he, had to fix the pump, which is in the middle of our dam. But unfortunately our inflatable boat was ripped to shreds in a recent storm. So the Irishman came up with a far more novel plan.
Alas, I have to inform you that the Irishman’s plan was a spectacular failure for instead of padding on the surfboard, valiantly to the heart of the dam, the Irishman put one tentative knee on the board and immediately sank to his neck quicker than you could choke with mirth…
And the happy ending to the tale was that he called PIPES, the Peninsula Irrigation Specialists, the next day to fix the pump, which was done effeciently albeit in a much less entertaining fashion.
That’s all this weekend!
