Last night's water problem was solved in time for me to cook dinner. Our friends, Einar and Susan, arrived to hear that we didn't have water. Einar, being the party animal that he is said, "we've got wine and dessert, not much more is needed." But he's an engineer and when he heard about the problem he and Kerry went out to see what they could do. The relay switch needed to be filed a bit, which was accomplished with the small file on a pair of nail clippers. Magically we had water. Our well man is coming out today to replace the switch. We've also put in calls to several well drillers to have them come out and give us an idea of how much the drilling with cost. I wonder if they will use a "water witch." I'll have to take pictures if they do. Later when we were cleaning up after dinner Einar said he didn't have to help because he'd fixed the well. We all agreed. You don't realize how important it is until you don't have any.
