Ahhhh...water!

Yes, the faucets one again are spewing the wet stuff. How long this will last, I can't say. I sometimes think the only time repairs are made here is when some building is torn down nearby and the owner can find cheap used supplies....

Some "experts" are saying Southern California may face water restrictions later this year. The drought is blamed, of course.

This is always prime fodder for the politicians. They look for new places from which to snitch water and dream up expensive programs so their big supporters can get richer building new aqueducts. They also love to preach "conservation," the same way Hillary loves to step off the private jets she uses to trot around the country on a near-daily basis and tell us how we must combat global warming.

PARENTHETICAL-BUT-RELEVANT THOUGHT: Some political hacks out West are clamoring to declare a "state of emergency" in California because the air is so polluted.

The truly odd part of this is that they are also the loudest supporters of throwing the borders open and letting millions of illegals settle here, each of whom will consume water and add to the pollution.

But hey, at least I can take showers again. For now, anyway.

"Kitty-water tea," Joan? Sounds kinda unappetizing when you put it that way....

I did have to buy him a fresh jug last night...Didn't want to end up having to refill his bowl from the tap today.

Anything for a little control over the population. Too bad they have the strings on necessities.
