A Good Luck, Bad Luck Story

Yesterday we had water outside….

actually we had lots of water outside….



.........but no water inside.

What bad luck…
The Water Board has a major problem and there is no town water!
What good luck…
We have a bore.
What bad luck…
The bore pump needs power and the power is intermittent.
What good luck …
We have a generator.
What bad luck…
The generator is buggar up (broken).
What good luck…
We had to shut the school and send all the students home!


Post Script – next day

What good luck…
The rain has stopped.
We have no water outside.

What bad luck…
We still have no water inside!!!

What good luck
Hmmmmm……… Any ideas for this one? I need humouring!!

Bummer, Jules.
High time you installed a hand pump to your bore as a backup.

Jules said...

Dive what agreat idea - post one to me now!!!

Lucky this blog doesn't have smell-a-vision, I could only have a sponge bath this morning - what fun!!!

lol! :)

What good luck, the sun is shining! :)

I hope you get water inside sometime soon :)

What excitement Jules, not needing to wash for a few days. Got any salt-water soap ?
These shots are tremendous; what a brilliant lifestyle, (until you get sick of it !!)
I guess we all live in our own little sub culture and covet one another's life style.
I would house swap with you guys any day.
BTW the hunky firemen yesterday were mostly girl firemen, but nonetheless they were hunky under all that protective clobber !
Just love all these buggarup shots... and do keep a lookout for that next cruiser in your waters.
I reckon the chaps the other day made a good suggestion, but don't paddle out with a laptop - paddle out in a cocktail dress.

Awwwww! I hope things get better now. What bad luck I didn't see your blog sooner. What good luck I came across it now!

Just popping in for another look at rain.
I think I can remember what it looked like.
I reckon that if it rained here, 1/2 of Oz would be out in it, with or without the bar of soap.

You could always move to Texas...BUT, since I need my daily fix of beautiful pictures...it sucks to be you! STAY PUT! lol lol (now, on a more serious note, just try to stay dry!)

Marie said...

Oh la la I hope the problem has been solved by now. Great post!!!!

Chuckeroon said...

This tremendously good news. It proves my wisdom and foresight in predicting that Rabaul DP would one day become a profoundly good source of regular entertainment.

More, more, encore.

Notwithstanding all that....my thoughts are with you.

Hi Jules... still no water on the inside? Hope not... it's a real pain in the ass when that happens. By the way, up here (in Portugal, that is) no water on the outside.

imac said...

Poor Jules, but you brought a smile to me(Bugger up).:):)

Oh
water water everywhere but not a drop to drink,

As the song goes La la la it can only get betterrr la la la

pop over to my blog for some action

Wow, quite a coincidence indeed that your post is also about water. What bad luck - that you have no water now, what good luck - you can relate to the things in this part of the world because of it! ;)

That spicket shot is cool. I like the colors on the tires.

Neva said...

There's a house in our neighborhood for sale that has water and the school I work at is looking for an English teacher. Sure you don't want to give up the volcano, bugs, no water, and move to the other side of the world?????

Bergson said...

good luck story! we have your news!!

For the remainder, it is necessary to make boil water in too outside.

Love the you way of taking it all with a little humor. I laughed through the whole post. But I imagine the inconvenience is incredible.

Actually we are starting to get some water outside and the plants and trees and the animals are most grateful.

I guess when you get that much rain, it don't have far to run to get into the ocean.

Jilly said...

I laughed too! Great post. I've no suggestions - but I know how the wet season, especially when things go wrong can get you down. Just think of that glorious beach when it's not raining, dammit!

And yes, Jules, no stilettos on the Balzi Rossi tour!

Sorry to hear about your water troubles. Great photos though.

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog.

It's a terrible place this PNG, if you are not getting covered in ash, then the phone lines get cut, bad weather, no good drinking water...
What a good job PNG as Jules.. ha! such a silver lining to a very dark cloud.

Erin said...
