My wonderful gardener, W, came by to ask if I had water on my property. “Yes, but it’s pretty low pressure,” I said. I’ll go check the canal,” he said. Which he did, and looked so happy because he’d gotten basura (trash) out that was clogging the tube. But the next day, even less water! So he checked again, and this time the workers found that a horse hoof from the neighbor’s had slashed the water tube. But still, after repairing, no water. Then, today, there was almost no water from those hoses! W came by with a sheepish look and said, “There will be water mañana en la mañana, Dorothy. We found one more horse hoof had slashed one more place, and we fixed it.”
