Next-door neighbor left his garden hose reel between our houses, hose strung out twenty feet, still attached to the bib: left it there all winter. Hard winter it was, too. Surely a man, busy as he might be, could have found a few minutes to drain and roll up the hose before the big freeze. No. Surely his hose will burst, will leak in many places come Spring.
Nope. He turned the hose on the other day to water his new tree. Not a problem Not a leak.
One of life's little disappointments.
For me, I mean.
Oh, and taxes.
