Lake of Shining Waters

I've been clomping around in knee-high rubber boots today. Our periodically flooded backyard is back in business, abetted by snow, rain, frozen ground, warm weather, and the recent quick freeze / quick thaw. I took advantage of the sunny day to set up a sump pump and hose and its mostly drained.

The phrase "When you are up to your ass in alligators, its a bit late to drain the swamp" has been rolling through my head all day. I've been feeling suitably butch.

Zippy, who toiled at a sewage treatment plant for over 5 years, seems to find steel-toed rubber boots on her woman sexy.
