Surf and Turf for Tuesday, May 18, 2010

by Suzanne on May 18, 2010

Every now and then I come across some really interesting/weird/curious things in my hang-ten time on the big WWW. Stuff that makes me think, laugh-out-loud, keeps me informed, and just “WOWs” me (sometimes in a good way, sometimes not so good).

There’s also some really interesting/weird/curious things that go on here. At this house. Right here at my feet that makes me think, laugh-out-loud, keeps me informed, and just “Wows” me.

Here are a few of the things crossing paths with me today.

Thought I’d share.

Cuz I’m that kinda gal.

I love to share.

Sometimes.

Being an only child, sharing has always been difficult.

But I’m working on it.

TURF

And this would be our front yard, taking the word “Turf”, literally.

Looking east from our drive

Big Digger. New water line was needed with new construction that has sprung up down the street. Hopefully this will increase our water pressure back to where it was when we moved in about 13 years ago.

Looking west

I’m working up to something here, so stay with me.

Big Digger and . . . . what . . . is . . . that . . . . ?

We left the house in the morning, and came home to this. Is that a little man standing there? No, wait, maybe someone’s trash? No, it’s . . . it’s . . . a FIRE HYDRANT!

Smack dab in the middle of our front yard.

Do you see it?

Are you kidding me?

We’ve done without this thing for 13 years, and all of a sudden we have to have it in the middle of our yard?

Seriously . . . ?

OK, phone call is on the schedule to the city civil engineer. I’ve emailed her before and she was very responsive.

We’ll hope that track record holds.

Ugh.

Hair on fire,
Suz

And on the bright side? Next time your hair’s on fire the firemen will be able to make quick work of it. Ditto for kitchen experiments run amok.

That is WOW! Can’t believe they can do that.
I like the no particular order thing. They say that on our celebrity reality shows too!
