Old well hookup
I needed to continue hooking up the old well.
I got the wires almost spliced when I noticed the old well wire had a bad break in it. I thought of getting a new wire and was going to go shopping when I realized I might just be able to cut the bad piece of wire off and still have enough wire to make the connection. I checked out whether the wire would make it and it just did so I got it spliced in and used tie wraps to secure it to the plastic pipe.
Here’s the finished product. Now I need to go shopping and get the rest of the stuff I think I need to finish up this project, or at least get close to it as I suspect it will take another time shopping to get it all done.
Takes a lot of tools
I really underestimated just how many tools I’d need to do the job at the beginning and at the end of the day there were about twice as many tools in the wheelbarrow as when I started. It seems there’s a lot of things that need done to hook up a well pump.
You want sheep?
While I was in the yard I heard someone whistling on the road and saying something thinking something was going on out on the road.
As I approached it turned out they wanted to talk with me.
The guy says, you want some sheep? I say no. He says you have eggs for sale and I say no, not knowing where the guy was coming from. He starts to leave and I noticed he’s a tree trimmer with a chip truck and thought maybe his sheep was chips as he was from Mexico.
Sheep means chips
So I say you mean chips and he says yes. Sure I can use some chips. I can see he has a hard time saying chips so ask if he can say woodchips and he can’t say wood either. Something about how they pronounce their words in Spanish compared to how the English pronounce things.
You want some eggs
So then I ask if he wants some eggs as I have lots right now. I give him sixty eggs as there is three guys and tell him I don’t sell eggs. He says he likes his eggs in his orange juice, I think raw.
Anyway we got some more woodchips and they are going to bring more of them in a couple days.
Apparently he’d talked with my brother about the woodchips but no one told me.
Chickens eat egg shells
After that I did some more planning on the well hookup stuff I will need to shop for and did some chair hopping and enjoying the day.
