What to do with that bothersome water pipe?

There is a common bond in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville.

We all deal with a stubby water pipe somewhere in our front yard.

My dear wife Karen and I have been letting the rusty little thing just sit there between our walkway and the road. Inside, I seethe a little bit.

And notice that there are imaginative ways, in varying degrees, that other people deal with the issue.

Tie a flag to it.

There’s a patriotic way to dress it up.

Sit and bear it.

You can sit around and hope nobody notices much.

Circle it.

Going around the system can either concentrate attention to or away from the pipe.

Best in show.

My favorite, no doubt, is the wishing well that fits neatly over the top. The fair garden behind it is pretty grand as well. Nice job, neighbors.
