My husband is a genius. He installed a drinking fountain outside to eliminate the endless trips in the house for a drink of water. No more air conditioning leaking out of the house, no more muddy floors and no more cups left outside. I'm giddy with excitement.

If I were good at this kind of thing I would include a parts list and step-by-step instructions. But I'm not. So instead I will include some pictures and a website link. If you are truly curious I suggest you email my husband who is the owner of the website Paralipsis linked on the right.

We bought a water bubbler online, but found it was also available at our local hardware store for the same price. Since it was plumbed right off the hose line it only required 20 minutes of work, a few monkey wrenches and some pipe glue (I'm sure that's not the official name).

Connor got in on the action too and was asked to turn the ball valve back on. Caskey forgot to mention that there are 2 ball valves in front of the house, one of which is an open pipe that sprays water on you. Of course Connor turned on that one. I managed to swallow a laugh and got ready for a melt down, but nope. He hollered to the backyard "It is done, but I have to change my pants now!" The poor guy was soaked, but didn't even blink. He is already getting used to the toll that comes with being a man - sometimes you get messy.
