Paul finished work at the refinery in Regina in early May. Between checking for other jobs we have a a fairly quiet summer. There's been lots of visiting with family and some puttering around home as well as the annual maintenance on the fifth wheel trailer. Debbie and Ernie started building a new house next to the old farm house they moved into this spring after their house in town sold. We have been a sometimes vocal peanut gallery in our kibbutzing. Hey! it's small town! What else is there to do.
Martin Water Wells out of Vermillion came along and drilled a well on our property. It doesn't have a high volume flow, but the water tastes okay, especially after I added an iron filter along with the other plumbing changes after B&D Landscaping trenched in the pipe from the well to the house.
During the annual wheel bearing greasingon the fifth wheel I noticed a broken spring. I couldn't get an exact replacement so that meant ordering and installing new springs on both ends of the back axle. That was a new and uneasy experience.
Overall the summer was pleasant in its own uneventful, scarce of useful job postings way.
