MICAH: We didn't have a chance to do much of anything yesterday, so we got caught without a post.
RUSTY: We don't have to post this photos of me, though. It isn't very good. Jan only snapped it to check if the battery was charged.
MARCUS: You don't believe that story, do you? She hit the shutter button by mistake.
MERCI: I think you look handsome, Rusty. I just love the peaceful expression on your fa .. uh, tail.
PERCY: Don't worry. Everyone will recognize your ginger fluff!
RUSTY: That's what I'm afraid of.
TAYLOR: Have you guys noticed that Jan has been acting a bit strange lately?
CYNDI: If you're here long enough, you'll realize that's the norm around here. But to be fair, she has been under a bit of pressure lately.
TAYLOR: I don't remember her being afraid to turn on a spigot before, but lately she will reach for the handle and stop.
BUDDY: I believe that's because she is afraid to turn it on for fear there won't be any water coming out of the spigot again. (Pt 1 I Have A Leak, Yes..No and Pt2 In Your Dreams)
MERCI: Yes, that is another strange norm around here. We used to have water on demand.
PERCY: We do again, but as of Monday evening it's cloudy and full of tiny bubbles Jan can only see with a magnifying glass. She looked it up on the internet and it seems to have something to do with pressure.
TAYLOR: Does that mean Jan is going to become cloudy and bubble too?
MARCUS: That should be interesting. Does anyone know how to work the camera so we can get a picture of that?
MICAH: According to the article she read, the water is safe to drink. Just set it aside for a minute to let the bubbles disappear.
NOTE: Some of you have commented about the safety of drinking the water. It really puts Jan off to see cloudy water but the water department insists the water is safe to drink. They claim the bubbles will stop if she runs a lot of water. Water in a glass does clear up as the teeny bubbles dissipate.
RUSTY: Yesterday Mr. Doug suggested she call the water department to be sure the water is truly safe. She was told the new hydrant on our corner might need to be flushed.
TAYLOR: A man from the water department came, said he had to go turn off the hydrant a block away and disappeared without flushing "our" hydrant - as far as we know.
PERCY: And then the water project supervisor and an inspector showed up, talked to her for a few minutes, and went to chat by the meter in the yard.
MERCI: She wasn't expecting a parade. She only wanted to know if the water was safe to drink. It's still cloudy.
MARCUS: Well, I'll be glad when this is over. I can't fit in the bathroom any more when Jan is in there. She has a bucket of water in the way. Just in case.
BUDDY: And containers of water in the fridge. Would you call that paranoid?
CYNDI: No, after the last week, I'd call that prepared.
