I wonder where that quote originates. I'll be checking Google.
So, the well guys called. He thinks I might only need a new pump, so that is only $1000. He thinks my pressure tank might be just fine, but if it isn't, add another $500. So, here we go. And of course, they have an opening tomorrow, so there ya go. I can't imagine what it will be like to have almost double the water pressure, wow. I hope it doesn't blow up all my appliances & other fittings. That would be about my luck, now why did I even say that. Geez.
On a lighter note, I went to the Farmer's Market today where they have a little of everything and bought a stand for a bird bath that I have out front. The metal base was rotting away so I took the base off and set the top into this wooden stand. I think it is cute as a bug. They guy who made it was super nice and gave me the scoop on the construction. I think it will last a long time.
BTW, The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner, in case you were wondering.
