Big Blue Can

A few months back a friend offered me one of those big blue plastic barrels with a top for free. He bought it for last drought. He wanted to build four cisterns to capture rain so he could water his landscape.

The drought is a distant memory and we are dealing with minor flooding nightly.

I thought I could use the container for horse grain or a multitude of purposes.

Gigi didn’t quite understand why I got it but it was okay with her.

The next day we saw on the news that a local man was arrested for killing his wife. He had stored her body in a blue plastic barrel. Gigi gave me a mean look.

“You’re going to kill me and stuff me in that barrel aren’t you?”

It turns out that that barrel is a handy garbage can for cleaning up the garage.

I learned yesterday that the FIL will be coming back Sunday for a month stay. Once this news was out the MIL insisted that she visit Saturday uninvited. She does that just to stir up the family dynamic.

Meanwhile I am still working to get the garage restored and we are dealing with a dog shit episode of epic proportions. Duke is really sick.

Visitors aren’t needed now.

Maybe I should empty that blue container just in case I need it?

Drew Peterson with a issing wife is also connected to a big blue barrel. We will be cruising to St. Thomas again and hope to make it over to St. John finally. It has been rainy or very choppy on all of our trips there and I don't do well that way. Otherwise, everything is well south of St. Croix. Too bad.

nothing wrong with those blue barrels. Add legs and a motor, and you have a damn fine deer feeder.

After a few days with the FIL, you may find there is competition for the barrel.
