Pipe Wrenched

Nearly eight months in to home ownership and thus far, the adage that a home is a never ending series of projects is proving to be true.  We came home late Sunday night to a busted sprinkler line (off the main, before the control switch) that had been shooting a geyser into the air for who knows how long.  All I can say is that my back yard was a swimming pool. ... and not in a good way.  So Morning morning (Monday the holiday/my day off) when I woke to deal with that I was already a little miffed at the thought of all that wasted water (and dollars).  I decided to start with something small, something simple, something easy.  So I prepared to install the dogs auto-water feeder onto the hose line. ... which consists all of screwing the cap on the faucet end.  Long story short I broke the copper pipe off in the wall by over wrenching it. ... yeah. ... that was the easy project for the day.  So five hours later, as the plumber was finishing soldering on the new pipe, Genevieve says to me over hear plate of dino nuggets "Daddy, maybe next time you should let me fix the pipe. ... that way it doesn't break like it does when you try and do it."  Thanks kid. ... just remember when CSD shows up, you asked for the job.
