A few years ago, under Melinda’s direction, the two of us installed, by ourselves, a 5 zone underground sprinkler system for our yard, garden & plants. Per her style, Melinda spent hours (days, really) mapping the whole thing out, doing oodles of research, fine-tuning everything, and otherwise accounting for practically every eventuality.
My job was to dig the trenches, something I did with glee. You see, I learned I like digging holes. It suits me and, perhaps, gives me something to fall back on if this education thing ever peters out.
Well, speaking of digging, a couple weeks back I was, under Melinda’s direction, digging a hole for a new plant she wanted in the back, near our outside stairs. I placed the shovel in the ground and, you guessed it, broke one of the sprinkler pipes. So, under Melinda’s direction, “we” fixed it today.
