What an odd day this is this year! For us there are just my husband and me at dinner, and I decided not to cook a big meal. We have had a problem at our house since Sunday, our well-pump and water tank gave up! It happened on Sunday, and we could not reach a plumber, so my husband decided to replace them himself. He's a very capable "Mr. Fixit" as he built the house from the foundation to finishing work more than fifty years ago, including the plumbing. On Tuesday afternoon he could not prime the pump. I finally reached the plumber and he said he'd come to the house in the afternoon, and he did get here. He said it was a lot easier than he expected and he was quite impressed with my husband's work. In less than half an hour he and his helper were done and we were able to run fresh water! This day was so stressful that I called the market about noontime where I was going to get a fresh turkey and canceled my order, because I did not believe we would have water in time. As it turns out we do have water, and for that we are Thankful.
