Once again it’s 8:30 in the evening, we’ve just come in from working all day, and even though it was work work work, it’s never even close to done. This day started with a whole lotta irritation. Specifically, some yahoo came down the east access road to our property. They backed over an irrigation riser with their vehicle, causing a 20 foot geyser. Then, they apparently panicked, because when we went outside, we found that someone had tampered with the valves on our domestic well, changing them such that had we not had a safety override on the system, our well pump could have burned up. I am making a certain amount of surmises as to what happened, but this kind of occurrence has just cemented my decision to hedge off our eastern border as time goes on. There are no end to idiots who will cause accidental damage and then try to "fix it" when they don’t know anything about how to do so. So I had to waste some hours trying to dig out the broken line and flush the line. Ah, Sundays.
