This concludes our tri-county tour of red structures.
Speaking of tours, yesterday I accompanied Anonymous Hallieford Resident, owner of Sandpiper Reef Restaurant, to a catering job on the site of the DIY Network's 2011 Blog Cabin, which is a Mathews County home they're extensively renovating to be given away later this year. (Click here for details.)
After helping her unload and set up, I was tasked with going inside the house to fill a jug with water.
A very simple task, no?
When CBW is involved, no. No indeed.
The house itself is quite lovely and very well appointed with every modern amenity and convenience. However, Chesapeake Bay Woman is unaccustomed to such amenities, since most of her appliances are
Just ask her children, who claim she holds an iPod as if it's a poisonous snake. (Hey, I just can't remember how to get to the music, but I can definitely get to Angry Birds and Scrabble. Plus, maybe I'm holding it so far away because I can't see close up anymore. Or, maybe I' afraid of it, like they say. Whatever.)
So when she went into the kitchen to fill the jug with water, she could not figure out how to turn on the tap. She tried and she tried, but no water came out. Must not be hooked up or something, she thought.
Next, she tried to get water from the refrigerator door. She pressed the water button but was baffled by all the choices that popped up next on the little screen. She pressed every button that seemed logical (to her) and even some that didn't, but no water came out.

Have a great weekend.
