It hasn't rained here in a long while and what rain we did get was either just a sprinkle or nothing much to mention. For that reason, I have tried to keep up with watering both plants and lawn, although the lawn is so dry it smells like hay. This morning i thought I'd better sprinkle the lawn for a while but the oscillating sprinkler doesn't oscillate anymore and is stuck in one position, making it rather useless. So off I go to buy a new one...uh ya, rather a difficult task to find one now. I finally did find a few different ones left at Canadian Tire and though I wasn't impressed with the price, I had very little choice in the matter. So, I bought one that is much like a spray handle attachment, with various spray settings, but is set on a platform on the grass. I'm trying it out right now and it works great!! The settings are circular, oval, 1/2 circle, rectangular and square and has a sleeve that snaps the hose on and off the unit....far quicker. I'm relieved I actually found a sprinkler at all!!With much of the summer still ahead of us, it amazes me that the stores haven't restocked their shelves. Instead all the Back-to-School supplies are now out.

That sounds like a neat one!
They can get crazy expensive.
I don't have an outside tap
so my grass is already dead.
Aww well,less to mow.

The school supplies are freaking me out! I want to yell at them
NO GO AWAY because they signal the
end of summer:(
July is way to early to put them out,lol
