I did it again.

 I tell ya, this short term memory thing is starting to get me in trouble. I do something like turn on water to a tree, and unless I set a timer on my phone to remind me to turn it off, it DON'T get done.

I woke up at 4am needing to pee. Not like a racehorse, but like a pony.

Did my business and laid back down, contemplating the backside of my eyelids.

Then BOOM! My eyes popped wide effing open and I am thinking, Holy Shit! I forgot to shut off the water on the fig tree! I turned it on wide open about 4 pm. 12 hours of flooding my neighbors driveway. 

Well crap. Up I go, found a light, this is one I can wrap around my neck and out I go. Nice little light. 

EZ Red Neck Lite




About halfway across the yard I start wading in 6" deep water, and I can hear the water hose going to beat 7 hells.

Turn it off and start wishing I knew how to swim, I could do a couple laps. 

And now I am up, so good morning to all of you!

  1. I was washing a boat Friday afternoon on the dock so it would be clean when the owner showed up Saturday. Got called away & left the hose on all night, dumping into the river. Think it may have changed the tide.
