The Many Men in My Life (part 3)

I told you there were a lot of men in my life these days... here's a few more...

Let us talk about the Water Man... he's been here a couple times - first to install our water softener system - Thank Goodness!  I've never had experience with Hard Water... and ours wasn't all that bad by comparison to other local areas... but I'd already had enough after just a few weeks.  And the taste of the water... well - even the dogs didn't like drinking it.  So in addition to the softener system we had a water purifier installed as well that dispenses water to the kitchen.  As we were paying him for his services we just happened to ask if he knew anything about wells.  Although we are on town water for the house - the outside faucets are hooked up to the well - which didn't work.  Now it does!  All new well water pumping stuff down in that big hole out back!  Another hot and dirty job done.

I'd tell you about the man who came and cleaned our oil fired boiler... but he looked like he was twelve years old... so I'm not sure he qualifies?  I thought there were child labor laws... I guess I'm just getting old because he honest to goodness didn't look old enough to know what he was doing.  But he was very efficient and attentive and answered all my questions like he knew what he was talking about.  I especially liked it that he wore these little paper booties over his work boots to keep from getting my new floors all dirty.

There is the Appliance Man who sent me my new washer and dryer... and when I give the word he will send me my new stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave - but first I need to decide if I need to find a man to do the kitchen floor or if The Engineer and I will take on that task.

I'd like to have a man come and give me a new kitchen counter top... but The Engineer is starting to question the necessity of all these men in my life...
