I was out doing the lawn. Everything ground to a halt. At least I wasn't electrocuted. I sliced right through the pump cord, AND the 100' extension cord. I thought I'd tucked the cord into the ground, but no.
The fountain was a gift to JB for our anniversary.
Anyway, I've broken a couple of the pieces over the years. OK, Plan A. JB went to the store and grabbed me a replacement male plug. They are quite simple. They are quite common, too. I'm not the only one who does this.
It still didn't work. Well, it did work, and then it didn't.
I found this online at Crappy Tire, printed it off, and sent JB in to get it. The town was PACKED with people. Poor JB. I know Red wrote about the traditional May 2-4 weekend in Canada. Cottage are opened, hydro turned on, water hooked back up, swearing ensues as people go into the hardware store for parts.
He helped me steady it, and, voilà ! It's a bit wobbly. Originally, they install it with a solid piece of copper pipe. I cannot lift the pieces onto this. They are just too heavy and I am not very tall. I replaced the copper with some tubing at the bottom. We may have to go back to Hansen's and get two replacement tiers and a new topper.
It was a lovely, sunny day, but the clouds were rolling in. JB suggested we go to the pub in Carleton Place, as they have an afternoon Blues band.
The wetland is brown, for now, the trees are filling in nicely.
It was sunny, but the clouds were rolling in. There were many people biking, out doing their lawns, playing in gardens, and shopping in town. The town was packed.
I noticed a nest at the wildlife centre. We'll have to go visit. Can you see it?!
The retirement home is coming along. I've been taking photos all along.
Does this restaurant look vaguely familiar, but not?!
We hunkered down in a corner to watch the band by 4 p.m. Outside, it was pouring rain. We had dinner there, too.
I love the brickwork on this building in Carleton Place. Following dinner, back home we went.
This may lead to a sketch!
It's been a bit rainy, which is not unusual for May. It's the colder temperatures that haven't been fun. Things are greening up, though!
