New position for the drilling rig can only mean one thing–we weren’t successful in cleaning the old well–we have to drill a new one$$$$$$$$$$!! Brian (our well driller) tried his best to make the old well work but it was not to be. So, Thursday Brian’s wife Diane completed an application for us and I headed to Bisbee to save time–the Cochise County offices are in Bisbee. The county starts the permit and then sends it on to the state so my driving to Bisbee saved us about 3 days.
On the way back from Bisbee the county called–we had issues. Why were we putting the well on a lot without the house? HUH?? Do we have to put the well on the lot with the house?? Why were we putting the well on a lot we didn’t own–HUH???? We have three acres and the house sits on the middle acre, we have a deed to all three. I called the Cowboy and he got on the phone with the county–by late afternoon we had a viable permit–geez!
The Cowboy continues to work on the guest house roof and it’s really shaping into a southwest looking house–
There used to be a large window in the end of the house–we may end up putting a window back in that spot.And, the roof itself–the Cowboy said all that figuring makes his head hurt!:)
We made a quick trip out to the little Pearce Friday market to obtain some of Otto’s salsa and some of these–bread and butter jalapeno pickles–they were delicious with cream cheese and crackers!
After the market Ms. Emmi received a haircut–she was a grubby little dog but when you are conserving water bathing the dog isn’t high on the priority list until I just couldn’t take it any longer.
Today I removed the old, nasty, icky, gross carpet from two of the bedrooms in the main house–totally disgusting!!! No photographs–it was just too nasty!
And, I know this is a restoration blog but it’s also my blog and I want to share a precious photo with you all–our great grandson Brooks with his great, great grandfather Nat–the Cowboy’s Dad.
And while the well thing was very discouraging we’ve both gotten over the initial shock and are moving on.
