Oh NO! No Water In Wink!

I only have a few pleasures in life. One of those pleasures is having a good cup of coffee. So, as I was driving home from work, I fantasized about a great cup of coffee. I rushed inside, turned the oven on, put the chicken in for baking, of course after adding a few spices and garlic and onion. Selected the veggies for the evening, straightened up the living room and then proceeded to brew a most righteous cup of java. Turned the faucet on and no water.

I knew I hadn't paid my water bill yet, but I knew I still had until the 10th of November to do it. I was quite confident that my water hadn't been shut off due to nonpayment of invoice. I made the quick phone call to my mommy, she knows everything.

Yep, my suspicions were correct. Our old leaky antiquated pipes have come undone. Seems we've been without water since 9AM and there isn't any chance of having water until sometime on Tuesday. I hope that it's early Tuesday AM so I can at least take a bath before heading off to work and have a cup of coffee! Oh bother.

Stinky non bathed women are the best! At least that's what they've been saying since ohhhh circa 1450 or so :). Or Wink since 1986 :-p

Apparently you have been moved to Afghanistan without proper notice. What a nightmare.

Gar, I don't remember having all these problems with the water back in the 80s...maybe since I was a young teen I didn't care.

Durango, I'm thinking Afghanistan might be a step ahead of Wink technically speaking.

I'm thinking Washington State is where we should go, Sharon. Checked the wells!
