Why is it that every time I think I am catching up on my finances, something goes horribly wrong? At the first light of day I went outside and checked all the hoses. None of them were on, but over at the edge of Mark's tomato garden a strange thing had happened. A bubbling brook had sprung up out of the ground just like in "The Song of Bernadette". Only this was not going to cure anybody except my plumber. Fourteen hours later, and four hundred dollars lighter our water main was repaired.
