Sprinkler Make Do
Well, in true Barrett fashion, I went looking for our good sprinkler the other day (the one I bought on clearance last year, so that we would finally have a good quality one that would water a large area of lawn at one time. How I wish we had an automatic sprinkler system! Sigh!). Of course, I could only find this yellow one. It is designed to work alone (with a cap on the end), or you can connect several together with several hoses. I know there are probably eight bazillion stinking sprinklers in the garage, but I could only find this one.....without the cap on the end. Further searching did not result in finding the cap (which I am sure I put in a safe place, so I could find it when I needed it. Along with the GOOD sprinkler). In desperation, I grabbed the spray nozzle that I use to hose off dirty sidewalks, dirty children, and dirty cars; and twisted it on the end (making sure the spray nozzle was twisted completely closed). I am happy to report that it worked like a charm and the lawn got watered before it completely burned to a crisp! Desperation is the mother of .....well.....flying by the seat of your pants, but the end result is what matters.............right?
