Intermission. . . .

To bring you up to date, may I introduce THE CULPRITS and THE DAMAGE.  Notice that Henny and  Penny are now in chicken jail.
Mother Nature stalled my repair job for a few days. The temperature in our lovely corner of the San Francisco Bay Area dropped to 29 degrees and the line froze. I took that as a sign that I could do anything else I wanted to besides my project commitment (it doesn’t take much!).  We don’t do frozen in our California neck of the woods.
Today we’re expecting rain (Halleluia!); the weather is warmer so out I went to snap some shots of the damage and buy the repair parts. After all of my whining, the repair will be very simple…cut out the messed up hose, ram the two ends into these nifty connector thingies (no goo….no mess), and “bleed” the hose to push out any dirt that got in during the repair.
Today is devoted to my “real job” and some vegetable soup and 70’s retro apron sewing.  All sound like much more fun!

    I may have to slip Henny & Penny a nail file!

    Henny and Penny have noted that they are mortified that I posted a picture of them while they are molting. And, not of their "good side".
