    Thanks Dad

    One of my grand-daughters pointed out to me yesterday that the waterfall in our koi pond was not running and that the water level was low. I discovered that a hose connection had become disconnected resulting in the available water being pumped out of the pond. I refilled the pond and reconnected the connection. The worst case scenario seemed to have come true though: the pump had burned out. After taking the pump out of the pond I got online to see how much it would cost to replace it and was dismayed to find that the best price would be around $300.
    Today I was moments away from using a credit card that I'd just paid off when something said to me, "Your Dad would not give up so easily." So I took the pump apart (no mean feat) and discovered that it was clogged up with gunk and needed to be cleaned. After I cleaned it and plugged it in, it ran like a champ.
    I don't believe in spirits but I do believe in the influence of those who have shaped our lives. Thanks Dad.

    Wow, Bob... it's true... our past speaks to us in things that we've heard/done that have shaped our lives and made us who we are! GREAT JOB!!!! I'm sure you had tears in your eyes when you plugged the pump in and all systems were go. I knew I would be bawling!

    Oh, and by the way, can I borrow $300??
