The iceman cometh

The septic module is moving slowly, and we have to do the perks and probes before the ground freezes. Being from Los Angeles, I just don’t think about problems like the ground freezing. Why are we moving there again?

One annoyance — I tested the well water in July, because I assumed someone would want that, and so I was ready with the results. Well, they do want that, but they can’t use my test because I’m not a “certified water collector.” Apparently, to be qualified to pour water from a sink into a cup requires some kind of state certification. (Can you say “full employment act?”) So we paid $35 to have someone else run the test and, not surprisingly, they got the same result. (I don’t sound bitter, do I?)
