Next project in my saga: replacing the sewer line. The plumbing company and city works department were here at 8:30 to start work. The city used a jackhammer to open the street; the rest has been on the plumbers. Casualties include some flower bulbs I had planted last fall. They also tried to move a flower pot, which fell apart and scattered the hen and chicks inside all over a dirt pile. My grandma had a field about 4 by 6 feet of them, and it’s down to 4 plants. I found them all, and they are now in a bucket safely in my kitchen.
