Yet Another Well!

About 200 feet down from the Town Farm well, there is another well. Cynthia and I cleaned this out/up this morning. You see the sand in it, mainly from the street we think. There’s a trench cut in the far end of it to let water out, assuming there is water. But at one time there surely was. An old barb wire is around part of it, possibly to keep the animals out — but why not let the animals drink? Mysteries!
Second Well
Well, speaking of wells, it’s hard to see where the near edge is. A tree shadow falls right at that edge. Next thing I want to try is to dig down in the middle and see if I strike …….. oil!!! Well, seriously, not oil but water. Maybe there’s an underground spring there? Or maybe not.

    Hey! I struck water! Didn’t take long. Just a shovel full and there it was, bubbling up from underneath. So now there’s a shovel-sized hole filled with water about eight inches down from the level sand.

    What time is it? Good question, zgirl.

    The time is set in WordPress. I just changed it to make it agree with our clocks.

    When standard time came, I forgot to change it.

    Now, when we set our clocks ahead on Saturday, I’ll have to change it again in WordPress.

    Just can’t keep up with this thing called Time!

    what is wordpress? is that the host of this blog? I guess.

    WordPress is the blog thing that runs on the host, called SiteSpinner V2. WordPress had an update nicknamed “Duke” after Duke Ellington, but I couldn’t get it to work well and it had a lot of bugs I was told, so I reverted to the original version.

    Great to meet Dick Hook at Food City. A guy older than me! Hey, old timers shop at Food City! Also, one of the cashier girls gave me a ticket to punch once a week and maybe win a prize! Gets me comin back in, huh?
