septic tank repaired!

Stoney Lake, 2017.08.08

Following a large rainstorm on the weekend, the septic tank at the cottage we're renting seemed to have filled up. We got ahold of the owners, who came out to check the intake filters and sure enough, they were clogged. Given that it was the long weekend, none of the contacts we'd had in the owner's manual had been available, so it was an antsy couple of days.

So it goes, with cottage life.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

It has always seemed strange to me...The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.

-John Steinbeck, Cannery Row
