    25 years of toting 5 gallons of water 50 yds or more every day through cold, sleet and snow during the winter my DW had this put in today for my 72nd birthday present.[​IMG]

    Isn't that nice. I am grateful to my DH for having mine back there. Unfortunatley it froze up last year and I still had to lug 5 gallon buckets several times a day to the outside buckets and then the galvanized waterers. They are wonderul to have. Hope it saves your back some hard work.

    Happy Birthday to you as well!

    That's awesome! I'm so happy that you don't have to tote all that water back and forth anymore. What a blessing! You have a wonderful wife to give such a thoughtful gift.

    Happy 72nd Birthday! [​IMG] May God bless you with many more!

    Was she hoping all during that time that you'd keel over and she could get a new starter husband? Glad she finally broke down and made it easier for you.
