June 8, 2010   “A Slice Of Life”

Life comes in slices; little, thin slices.  Like the slices of a way too small for so many people watermelon; just a big enough taste of the sweet goodness to make you want more…but there is no more, because everyone else had to get a slice too.  Sometimes you get lucky and your slice comes right out of the middle of the melon where it’s the sweetest and there’s hardly any seeds.  Then, at other times, you get the weird little slice from the end, where there’s too much rind and too little melon.  That’s life…sometimes you’re eating in the middle of the melon, and sometimes you’re choking down the rind.

Last night, I got the end slice of life’s watermelon.

I arrived back at the Hamlet, and stepped into the Cedar Brook after a long day at work.  I was looking forward to a nice shower and a relaxing time of blogging.  When I opened the door, I was met with a strange, earthy smell, not an unpleasant odor at all, but an unusual one.  I barely took any notice of the smell until it dawned on me exactly what it was.  I grabbed my flashlight, hurried around to the back of the Cedar Brook, gained access to her dark, forbidding underbelly, and found exactly what I expected; the Cedar Brook had become the……..Cedar Creek!

Hot water leak!
Damned cheap-ass plastic trailer plumbing!

Just Say’n
