Wondering what happened

yeah yeah yeah! Covid,

Shots! Zenica, Moderna, J and J and That odd green stuff from questionable sources that doubles as Antifreeze in winter. That is not the issue here. The issue here is my time in the Garden.

I needed a watering can so went to the source of all things: the internet where I purchased one. It arrived, a bright cheerful blue plastic watering can proudly bearing the Sticker Made in the U.S.A. kinda cool; after all so was I.

I smiled in my Dotage remembering all the cool things made in the U.S.A.

Hudson Hornets, Studebakers, Oldsmobiles, Packards, Lasalles,the menacing Pontiacs of muscle car times ,and some of the lesser creations, the Vega, Pinto, Pacer, and the Gremlin.

But, in my youth, American Iron always dictated style and function,

As a kid I so wanted to take the wheel and roar off into untold adventures

Even in the old family Rambler Station wagon, adventure was just through the windshields. Magic was crafted in Detroit, Flint, Kenosha. American by Gosh and by Golly, just like my plastic watering can. Bright Blue with a White spout.

Feeling the immense pride in the Heritage of American industry ,from Gary Indiana to Pittsburgh, I filled my can and headed out into the garden...

It leaked.
