The Well Again

If you have followed this blog semi-regularly over the last two years then you know that the well at Serenity Ranch frequently goes on strike. Last week the pump finally gave up the ghost after over 30 years of fitful work. Today my uncle and I extracted it from the well shaft. This was not an easy task. It took hours to hoist up by rope. Even wearing gloves I got a nasty blister on my right index finger. Pulling up the pump in 100 degree weather has totally worn me out. I am very grateful I will not have to do this again.
