It seems that whenever a person moves into a new house, surprises await!   For me, it was the fun experience of finding out I could not turn off the water spigot in my backyard one morning when I had decided to give Betty, my dog, her bath.  I had begun to fill up the small plastic pool and wanted to turn the water volume down a little when I realized that the spigot would not turn, or that I did not have the strength to get it to turn.

So, I ran into the house and put on my gardening gloves, hoping that the gloves would give me traction.  I also picked up a pair of pliars while I was in there, thinking I might need them to make a hard turn.  

After all there would never be a need for coilhose pneumatics -not for this challenge anyway.

As it turned out, neither I or both of my grandsons could get the water off and soon we had water flooding into my driveway.  I gave up and ran to get a male neighbor I had met only briefly when I had first moved in.  He, very kindly, turned it off- asked the boys why they couldn't have done it- and left.  

Tool, can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em -oh, maybe that is the wrong noun.
