The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Gas update

Because who wants old gas?

The rest of the striping was done today, so now the palatial Surlywood estate is festooned with multicolored flags: green for the sewer line, blue for the water line, yellow for the gas line. (There are eight colors in all, but the rest don't apply here: both electric and cable lines are overhead.)

Still no word on when they're going to dig up the yard, but at least now they know where they're going to dig up the yard.

Is phone overhead as well or do you have cable phone?

The land line is up in the air.

And all this time you didn't have a decent shower? No wonder your mind turned to savage uncivilized women who wear Converse to work.

Yay! Flags! Carnival!

You could open a theme park: Three Flags Over Surlywood.

But the "We haul hot water" signs might depress attendance.

I'm already depressed just from having to wash dishes at the stove.
